Dr Rebecca Tibenderana is a 2015 Commonwealth Medical Fellow from Uganda. She spent six months at University Hospital Bristol NHS Foundation Trust. Prior to her fellowship, she had completed a Bachelor’s degree in Medicine and Surgery at Mbarara University of Science and Technology, Uganda, and later a MMed in Internal Medicine. Her further studies were driven by her interest in oncology and the lack of specialists in this field at Mbarara, where she is currently a Lecturer. During her time as a postgraduate student, Rebecca established a cancer registry, now a cancer centre, where she is also the Clinical Head.
