About Health Training School
Our school was started back in 1986 by Sister Davnet O’Kane from the Medical Missionaries of Mary (M.M.M) Sisters, initially with just four students. It started with the purpose of training staffs for the hospital laboratory. As the demand for staff increased, the school got bigger. Until 1988, it ran thanks to the generous financing of CAFOD, MISEREOR and CEBEMO, but in 1999 it had to stop operating due to a lack of continuing funds.
In 2004 the Ministry of Health asked Kitovu to revive it, and so it officially reopened in 2005. Since the schools revival 65 students have been trained. The school takes Senior Four leavers who passed Sciences, English and Mathematics and trains them to be Laboratory assistants over a period of two years. Today the school is equipped with enough infrastructure (i.e. hostels and classrooms) for 130 students.
A total of 100 Laboratory students graduated on 5th Dec 2013. These students are professionally equipped in laboratory techniques and they are bridging the gap of scarcity of laboratory technicians within the area. Laboratory Training School is now planning the construction of the multipurpose hall which will enable the school to have a place for assemblies and other vital meetings. These are very vital in the training of Lab students. Your support counts much towards the implementation of projects at the hospital. We are proud of these graduates.
Since 2005, St. Joseph’s Hospital Kitovu Health Training School, has received a number of graduates as indicated in the table bellow;
