Joy Mirembe - Makerere University

Joy MirembeMy name is Mirembe joy, a medical doctor who has just recently completed my Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery at Makerere University and doing my medical internship at Mulago National Referral Hospital. I am very passionate about research, innovation and clinical work.

Over the time, I have learnt to appreciate the power of riding on shoulders of great men and women and my IPE experience wasn’t any different. I saw this as a global opportunity for me to interact with like-minded people in different professional bodies with a common goal of achieving good health for all. More so, I knew that there will be a lot of lessons and skills earned by the end of the program. Thankfully, all this came to reality.

During my participation in the program, I learnt and appreciated the power of working together as a team from different professional disciplines as we solve different health concerns. I also learnt the value of involving our senior professionals in problem solving while giving evidence for your reasoning. International collaborations with interdisciplinary involvement are key and parcel to achieving the 3RD Sustainable Development Goal which is GOOD HEALTH AND WELL BEING.

I am encouraging interdisciplinary involvement in problem solving and this should start right away in medical school which is the foundation of the health profession. This should be well structured in the the student’s curriculum and different work places.
