Successes and Challenges of Malawi’s Only Medical School

International Journal

Croat Med J. 2009 April; 50(2): 189–191 Apr 01, 2009

“The successes and challenges that medical education faces in Malawi have been documented elsewhere (3-5). Let me start with the successes. The first was the very establishment of the medical school. The skepticism of the 1970s and 1980s turned into the optimism of the 1990s: Malawi currently boasts of its own medical school. In fact, the people who had argued that poor countries need not have their own medical schools were just wrong.”
