This was after Makerere University Dental School had failed to meet the set requirements, which led to its closure by the East African Medical and Dental Council.
Yesterday 3rd July 2020, the registrar of Uganda Medical and Dental Council Dr Katumba Ssentongo revealed that they are set to re-visit Makerere Dental School to check if it has fulfilled the minimum requirements that led to its closure.
“The regional council has given us authority to revisit all universities that were closed because its officials are unable to move due to COVID-19 travel restrictions. We have written to all affected universities to set dates for inspection but none has responded,’’ He said.
The closure of Makerere Dental School was due to lack of adequate space for training, limited number of staff and lack of necessary training equipments.
