My experience at the IDI- Uganda was nothing short of extraordinary.  The curriculum was designed with rigor and excellent practical training that put me in a position to confidently embrace my two week stints at IDI. With the encouragement of outstanding IDI faculty, I found new interests in the spheres of practical experience in some of the novel techniques used to diagnose opportunities infections in PLWHIV and have since explored various ways to use this knowledge to strengthen diagnostic skills among laboratory workers in order to mitigate the morbidity from such diseases. Although I cannot know what new adventures and learning opportunities await, I am confident that the experiences and foundations I obtained from IDI program have helped to place me on a promising trajectory.
My heartfelt thanks to IDI faculty.

My moment at IDI was quite enlightening. I enjoyed the interactive classroom sessions followed by clinical visits in the wards. The lecturers were quite competent and delivered succinct and updated HIV content. I enjoyed the hospitality accorded to us by the IDI staff. I will definitely come back for another course

Hi, I am Dr. Swaleh Nyae. I had a warm reception at IDI knowledge Center - Kampala Uganda for a Clinician Training on most Dangerous pathogens , second last week of September 2015 .I stayed at a comfortable place and despite the traffic jams of Kampala city, the driver picking up by the morning bus was always on time The technical staff were very professional and always helpful. The material was presented in well summarized presentations and print outs. I was the youngest participant of the group but that was hardly noticeable as the staff in general treated me fairly and respectful.  Thank you IDI- Kampala.
