Site Visit Reports

During the course of the SAMSS project, SAMSS site visit teams visited ten medical schools in different African countries and produced a Site Visit Report on each school.  Each report opens with a series of Findings that highlight noteworthy features and important lessons from that medical school.  The body of each report starts with a section giving an overview of the school and its context, including a SWOT analysis of the school's strengths and weaknesses and the opportunities and threats that it faces.  Further sections of the report include extended discussions of issues in capacity building and retention related to the school. 
The following site visit reports have been released with the permission of the schools visited:
