My name is Michele Kigozi. Born in 1979, I am a doctor working and living in Nottingham, in the United Kingdom.
Having grown up in Uganda, and studied in Kenya, I came to the U.K in 1994 to study. I went to Medical School in Nottingham, and graduated in 2001. After completing my pre-registration year, I did two years of a general medical rotation based at the Queens Medical Centre in Nottingham. My rotation took me through placements in cardiology and coronary care, neurology, gastroenterology, hepatology, respiratory medicine, endocrinology, intensive care medicine, and health care of the elderly. I obtained my Membership of the Royal College of Physicians over this time before deciding to do anaesthetics.
I have done two years of anaesthesia and am currently looking for specialist registrar posts in the specialty. Ultimately, I aim to dual certify in anaesthesia and intensive care, which will involve completing the second part of the Fellowship of the Royal College of Anaesthetists. I have had a range of experience across the surgical specialties including General Surgery, Trauma and Orthopaedics, Ophthalmology, Ears Nose and Throat surgery, Obstetrics, Neurosurgery and Spinal surgery, and Paediatrics.
My special interests lie in regional anaesthesia and paediatrics. I believe regional anaesthesia will be of particular benefit in terms of reducing the cost of many of the surgical services we hope to offer, and I hope my expertise will be useful in terms of securing our goals of providing a medical service that is affordable and effective.
