There is one point to stress: The condition and the equipment of the anatomical theatre have to be called excellent and meet European standards. Based on this Memorandum of Understanding Dr. Bernhard Frischhut, a member of our association started a series of lectures in Orthopaedic Surgery and Traumatology for two weeks in October 2012 in cooperation with the local orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Kiwelu. On top of that a series of lectures was given for the Assistant Medical Officers (AMO) as well.

Dr. Bernhard Frischhut and Fr. Achille Ndege,Vize-Principal of SFUCHAS Further plans: It seems to be most important to develop a further cooperation between SFUCHAS and MUI. A meeting to inform the members of MUI is planned in order to recruit guest lecturers. The possibility of scientific cooperation was also discussed.
