Meanwhile, the Palliative Care Unit (PCU) under the Department of Medicine continued to be involved in training with a new link nurse program that has so far trained eleven nurses across the Mulago site, and is providing mentorship to enable them support palliative care needs. Two of these nurses will also commence a Diploma in Palliative Care with Cairdeas Scholarships. The PCU contributes to the development and delivery of this new Diploma and BSc programme run by MakCHS├ö├ç├û affiliated Hospice Africa Uganda which now has 53 students from 10 countries across the Sub-Saharan Africa region. The unit is also supported by visiting external faculty, in particular, from Edinburgh University. 
Staff and students at the Department of Medicine have continued to participate in continuing medical education by attending mini and grand rounds, journal clubs, pathology seminars, local and international meetings plus conferences.
