Jerome Roy Semakula, MBChB

As a young member of this noble profession of medicine, I have set out to make a difference in this field not only by caring for the sick but also through research and contributing to the broader body of knowledge. I intend to do this through continuous learning, sharing and networking and through hard work, integrity and commitment in my practice.
