Dr. Solomon Kibudde
Program Director for the UCI Radiation Oncology fellowship at the Uganda Cancer Institute.
Dr Solomon Kibudde serves as a Clinical Radiation Oncologist within the Division of Radiation Oncology and holds the role of Program Director for the UCI Radiation Oncology fellowship at the Uganda Cancer Institute. Following his completion of a fellowship in Cape Town, Dr. Kibudde returned to Uganda and played a crucial role in propelling the progress of radiotherapy practices in the country. His efforts led to a transformative shift from conventional 2-Dimensional radiotherapy to more advanced approaches, including 3-Dimensional Radiotherapy, Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy, and Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy.
Dr. Kibudde possesses an in-depth understanding of the radiotherapy landscape in Uganda and sub-Saharan Africa, and has been at the forefront of establishing a dynamic, comprehensive fellowship program in Radiation Oncology. This initiative aims not only to bridge the expertise gap for radiation oncologists in Uganda but also to contribute significantly to the advancement of radiation medicine across the broader East Africa region.
Dr. Kibudde’s professional interests encompass both clinical and academic domains, with a focus on radiation therapy treatment planning and administration for Cervical cancer, Breast Cancer, and Gastrointestinal cancers. Currently, he is investigating hypofractionation, and the utilization of artificial intelligence to optimize clinical workflow and access to radiotherapy within high-volume clinics in resource-constrained environments. With a portfolio of over 10 published works, he has also shared his expertise as a speaker at various international scientific conferences.
