Caps off to LeBoHA's FMSTP Graduates
On September 30th, 2022, LeBoHA's Family Medicine Speciality Training Program (FMSTP) celebrated the graduation of the four accomplished registrars. Pictured above (starting from the left): Dr. Mamakhala Chitja, Dr. Moseme Makhele, and Dr. Muila Kambulandu. Dr. Tilo Namane graduated in absentia.
With these new graduates, there will now be 10 FMSTP graduates and 13 registrars in Lesotho. The map below shows where these doctors are working. There are now graduates in 7 of the 10 districts of the Mountain Kingdom.
Congratulations to Another Impressive Graduate!

He is now enrolled in a course in plumbing, and is set to become the superintendent of the LeBoHA Post-Graduate Campus, which is currently under construction. Stay tuned for the ribbon-cutting ceremony, scheduled for May of next year.

LeBoHA Attends the South African Academy of Family Physicians Conference
Ten LeBoHA team members traveled to Cape Town for the South African Academy of Family Physicians Conference. Attendance included, starting from the left: Dr. Sekoere (registrar), Dr. Motjope (registrar), Dr. Mashale (registrar), Dr. Mojaje (Internship Coordinator), Dr. Moeko (registrar), Dr. Sanders (FMSTP faculty), Dr. Selebalo (registrar), Dr. Mochochoko (registrar), and Dr. Kambulandu (FMSTP graduate).

The theme of the conference, "Bouncing Back: Resilience in the Face of Change" was very fitting, and LeBoHA attendees left with a renewed inspiration to continue their important work.
