Machame Medical

Since 1969, Machame Lutheran Hospital has hosted and operated a school to train clinical officers. Where ever you go in Tanzania and beyond you will meet graduates of this program.

This is a three year program for Form 4 or Form 6 leavers. Training is provided on all aspects of medicine appropriate for clinical officers. Graduates receive a Diploma as Clinical Officers from the Ministry of Health and is offered under the University of Dar es Salaam.

Each year 45-50 students are admitted and begin their training. Most are from Tanzania but students have come from across Africa.  The school year begins in August. Applications are received from Jan 1 to April 30th and selections made in the 2nd week of May.
