Message from the University Chancellor

Rev Samuel Murangi. MSS, MDiv

Chancellor FINS Medical University


Welcome to FINS Medical University (FMU).
In 2017, FMU was founded by a group of dedicated Uganda Mr. Kalenzi Victor and his wife Mrs. Philomenah Kalenzi with a major principle of “training competent medical practitioners”. It is our goal that our students once they graduate will engage and address the human resource for health gap affecting the region of Africa and nationwide, as well as being involved with the administration of public medical affairs and conducting various forms of research. The founders of FINS Medical University have reaffirmed a commitment to advance a rigorous training programs and be a pioneer in the field of health sciences. We are implementing a program for nurturing the code of conduct and humanity as health workers, and a student exchange program for attaining an international level of medical expertise in both class work(theory) and clinical practice. The current statistics indicate there is one medical doctor available serving 1000 Ugandans. The healthcare situation is worse in rural areas which lack well equipped medical facilities as well as training institutions. Until recently, there never existed any graduate medical training institution in the Rwenzori region which encompasses the seven districts of Kabarole, Kyenjojo, Kyegegwa, Bunyangabu, Kamwenge and Kasese, Bundibugyo. In fact, in Uganda, we have less than five institutions for high that train health workers at degree level. To make it worse each of them have one or two programs. The country majorly relies on Makerere University to produce most of the health workers. It is one of FINS Medical University’s goals to train a new generation of health workers through rigorous training in both theory and clinical experience at this university so as to make them become the most competent health practitioners, with a lifelong study habit, and a societal
perspective to support the health of the people and to meet society’s expectations. It is also our major goal to help the Government of Uganda and other governments in East Africa, in providing the research to solve health problems currently affecting the country. Lastly, we intend to establish a training hospital with  specialized services and offer complicated surgeries to the people of Uganda and the region at large. This way, we shall be helping reduce the cost of health care which only the government and a few individuals can afford from Industrialized nations.
