Further Information: 

I am a medical doctor working in Kenya with academic interests in critical care, non-communicable diseases, public health research and health policy.  Upon completing my undergraduate studies at Moi University, I undertook a one-year internship at a Kijabe Mission Hospital. Thereafter I worked in both public and private hospital ICUs and busy medical wards. I currently manage capacity building initiatives for both patients and doctors in the realm of non-communicable diseases.

As a build up to my undergraduate training, my goal is to pursue a dual career in both clinical and research medicine. This MSc will help me prepare to undertake the MRCP qualification exams and move on to pursue a PhD in Endocrinology and Diabetes. With these qualifications, I hope to improve  patients’ outcomes and lobby for increased access to medicines in Africa.

Attaining this MSc will also enhance my understanding of Internal Medicine and enable me to design scientific solutions that are implementable in remote parts of Kenya. Through these solutions, I hope to grow the number patients and doctors who can access up to date information on non-communicable diseases.

I thank the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh for awarding me the RCPE 100% Scholarship.
