Yesterday, Makerere University College of Health Sciences made a call for applications for the prestigious undertaking in ‘Leadership & Management in Global Health’.
The Makerere University Lung Institute through its NIH funded Non-Communicable Diseases Research training program dabbed #D43TW011401, aims at developing capacity for researchers to lead and manage Non Communicable Disease research programs in Uganda.
Accordingly, as part of the program, the Makerere University Lung Institute will sponsor participants with interest in Non Communicable Disease research to undertake a Leadership and Management in Global Health course with the University of Washington.
This new course is aimed at providing practical leadership and management skills that are requisite and indispensable to working in complex local, regional, national, and global health environments.
On its official website, the University Management indicated that the deadline for submission of applications is 19th August 2021. Applications for this novel undertaking can be made as follows.
The Applicant must create an eDGH account: go to https://edgh.washington.edu, select ‘Log in’ on the top right, and then ‘Create a new account’. This will allow you to apply to the course and the account will keep track of your application and data.
Once you have created your account, go to https://edgh.washington.edu/courses/participant-application.
Select the “Site-Based Participant” option when applying and select your site as “Uganda Kampala Makerere University Lung Institute” from the list on the application:
The Applicant may be asked if they understand that they may be responsible to contribute to site fees and they must answer in the affirmative. However, there will be no cost to the Applicant for taking this course with the Makerere University group. The Applicant will ultimately receive a confirmation email once they have submitted their application.
