MUK Student Organizations

MUBESA: The Makerere University Biomedical Engineering Student Association (MUBESA) is a vibrant student-run service and professional organization that promotes the development of BME in Uganda.  MUBESA is one of the few programs of its kind in Sub-Sharan Africa.  It is essentially equivalent to the Duke student chapter of BMES (although frankly more active).

EWH: Makerere University BME has the only chapter of Engineering World Health (EWH) in all of Africa and one of a handful outside of the continental U.S.  MUK EWH’s main function is to organize groups of MUK BME students to go to hospitals in Uganda to repair medical equipment.
