Medical Symposium for Doctors

Professor Grace Irimu conducted an afternoon symposium for medical students who have just completed their final year exams and due to graduate next year. The symposium was held on the 19th of Nov 2015 at the University of Nairobi.

The main aim of the symposium was to familiarize the new doctors with best practices in use of data in the county hospitals and mainly on the Clinical Information Network, a collaborative partnership between KEMRI-Wellcome Trust, the Ministry of Health and the Kenya Paediatric Association that aims to improve data collection as a means of providing quality care for new born babies and children.
