The Pediatric Hematology-Oncology (PHO) Fellowship Programme
Pediatric Hematology-Oncology (PHO), which is directed by Dr. Joseph Lubega, a pediatric hematology-oncology specialist at Texas Children’s Cancer and Hematology Centers, was started in 2016 with an initial intake of four fellows. The programme is a partnership between several institutions; the Uganda Cancer Institute, Texas Children’s Cancer and Hematology Centers, Baylor College of Medicine, Makerere University College of Health Sciences, Mulago Hospital and the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Uganda. The programme aims to produce pediatric hematology-oncology specialists to not only serve Uganda, but other parts of Africa. The second intake of the programme commences in August 2017.
