Help train Family Doctors in Malawi

$2,686 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 20 people in 5 months
The Department of Family Medicine at the University of Malawi College of Medicine is crowdfunding to raise stipends/scholarships for 2 Postgraduate trainees for its Masters of Medicine (MMed) in Family Medicine program. Currently, the Department does not have any stipends/scholarships to support new MMed registrars (postgraduate trainees, also known as residents some places). These trainees will be part of the first generation of Family Medicine doctors pursuing training right here in Malawi.

As you can see, training Family Doctors is a means to improving health care systems in Malawi and around the world. We urge you take part in raising funds for training Family doctors.

Budget: the target of 100will support: 1) Annual tuition paid to the College for the Master’s Degree ($3,500 annual tuition x 4 years x 2 future family doctors) + a basic stipend to financially support the trainee in rural service for period of training (housing, educational materials). ($700 monthly x 12 months x 4 years x 2 future family doctors)

Ongoing updates about postgrad trainees will be found in our newsletter and website.  If you are interested in receiving our newsletter by email, write  Mr. Andrew Mihawa, to be added to our list
