Dr. Odongkara Beatrice

Senior Lecturer

Beatrice Odongkara is a remarkable and determined woman who hails from northern Uganda, a region plagued by conflicts during her upbringing. Despite facing adversity, she displayed resilience and a strong work ethic. Due to the insecurity prevailing at the time, Beatrice initially had to abandon her education. However, she was granted a second chance when her father ensured their safety in Kampala, Uganda’s capital. Beatrice’s academic journey led her to earn a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBChB-2003) as well as a Masters of Medicine in Paediatrics and Child Health (MMed. Paed – 2009) of Makerere University. Building upon her qualifications, she pursued further specialization in Paediatric Endocrinology and Diabetology, earning her credentials in 2012 through a scholarship provided by the European Society for Paediatrics Endocrinology (ESPE) at the Paediatric Endocrinology Training Centre for Africa (PETCA) in Nairobi. Since 2004, Beatrice has been a valued member of the staff at Gulu University’s Faculty of Medicine, where she has steadily risen through the ranks to the position of Senior Lecturer and Head of the Department of Paediatrics and Child Health.
