Message from The Organising Committee Chairperson


As we turn 25 years in 2016, the first week of September will be dedicated to the silver jubilee celebrations.  This celebration is for all of us partially or fully involved with the college as our theme states “excellence; yesterday, today and tomorrow”.

From its beginning the College of Medicine has been committed to a standard of excellence.  The first President of independent Malawi, Hastings Kamuzu Banda himself a doctor, would only endorse the creation of a medical school is it was of excellence.  It took 22 years for him to agree to its developments after a recommendation from the Tripartite Commission that reported to him in 1986.

The first 22 Malawian trained doctors qualified with Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery, (MBBS) from the University of Malawi, in July 1992.
