1]   Consultant Paediatrician

We seek a committed Christian to work in this Church of Uganda hospital, with a high level of motivation to serve the health needs of our community.  We currently have two General Paediatricians in Kisiizi supported by Medical Officers and Clinical Officers.  We train Intern Doctors and Nurses who rotate through the Paediatric Department.  We have a Special Care Baby Unit and General Paediatric Ward with Nutrition section and provide support to children in the community via our Health Insurance Scheme, Child Sponsorship Programme, Community Based Rehabilitation outreach, Nutrition follow up etc as well as routine immunisation and child welfare clinics.  We have consultants in General Medicine, General Surgery, Obstetrics & Gynaecology as well as Paediatrics, and Kisiizi also has in-patient psychiatry and is training a Child & Adolescent Mental Health nurse.

We are hoping to build a new Maternity and Neonatal Ward Block in the next 3 years to a very high quality, and to also construct an Intensive Care Unit.

Kisiizi is innovative.  We have developed Stre@mline, an IT system now being used in a number of hospitals in Uganda which incorporates a number of Patient Safety & Quality features partly coming from our work as the only hospital in Uganda in the first wave of the WHO African Partnerships for Patient Safety scheme.
