Because little information exists on the career paths & destinations of graduates of medical schools from developing countries, the author presents here perhaps the first report on career and life outcomes of graduates of Makerere Medical School in Uganda. Of 77 doctors who graduated in 1984, 22 were dead by the time of the study. 6 doctors were found to have died by suicide, 5 of which deaths were related to knowledge or fear of being HIV positive.
