Mengo Hospital School of Medical Laboratory Technology was established in 1992 with three (3) students as pioneers. By then, the training was in collaboration with Nsambya School of Medical Laboratory Technology. Today, there are not less than 200 students at any one time. More than 500 students have so far graduated at this school as Laboratory Assistants and Technicians. Because of increasing demands of students wanting to study at this school, a lot of pressure has been created on the school in the areas of infrastructure. Given that the school has been in existence for almost 21 years now, the future plan is to establish training at degree levels which is the most critical cadre in demand at the National and internal levels, given that research has become a key issue in the health sector.
We conduct training programs in :
Nursing,Midwifery,Laboratory technology,Radiology and ultra sound, all leading to the award of National certificates and diplomas.
We also offer internship training for newly qualified medical doctors,dental surgeons, graduate nurses and pharmacists.
