Visiting

 

Electives by medical students and other healthcare professionals have been popular for many years and have benefited both the students and the hosts.  Demand is very high and places are often booked for at least a year ahead.  It is unlikely that you will find an elective placement at Kisiizi at short notice.Click on the individual links below for:

Map K re airports

Please note that Kigali airport is significantly closer than Entebbe so visitors may choose to fly to Kigali.  The fares are sometimes more expensive, and some nationalities will need a Rwandan Visa.  However, the journey to Kisiizi is much shorter in terms of distance and time.  It is an hour or so from Entebbe to Kampala and then about 7 – 8 hours drive from Kampala to Kisiizi, longer on some forms of public transport of course.
