Dear Mr Oscar, thank you for consulting the ministry of Defence and
Veteran affairs. You may need to be specific about your science degree.
Professionals like Doctors and Engineers are always given extra years
outside the known 18-25 due to their long stay while persuing their
studies. Normally it is between 18- 28yrs.

Dear Akiiki Deo Akiiki,

Thank you for your prompt response. Very much appreciated.
Currently I have a bachelor's degree in medical laboratory science; and, having practiced for 9 years, (6 years as a laboratory technologist and almost 3 years in field work), I have fine tuned my career interests with a bias in medical scientific research; with which ambitions I seek to deploy them in service of my country and the world at large through the UPDF.
I am currently looking out for the national recruitment dates in tandem with organizing the necessary prerequisites. On this note, where can I undertake a military medical fitness checkup in Kampala , a place recommended and recognized by the UPDF?

Yours sincerely,

Oscar Senfuma
