"Uganda is one of the world’s least developed countries. Makerere Medical School has neither an equipped skills laboratory nor designated trained personnel for teaching clinical skills. Makerere lacks the funds to construct and equip a skills laboratory and train the trainers. Training of clinical skills to medical students has been implemented traditionally during the clinical clerkships in Uganda. In 2003–04 a problem-based learning (PBL), student-centred medical undergraduate curriculum was introduced with the stated goal of early clinical exposure and training of clinical skills."
