Dean's Message

The University of Zambia School of Medicine continues to be a prime institution of the Government of the Republic of Zambia in health education. The year 2013 marks the 45th year of our existence and we boast of sending out not only Doctors but also Pharmacists, Biomedical Scientists, Physiotherapists, Environmental Health Officers and Nurses who have made a real difference in the Zambian society. We are proud of our achievement and believe that we have been true to our motto of “Service and Excellence”.

Over the years, the School of Medicine has continued to offer quality education in the various health fields. It has also performed quality research which has influenced policy and practice and has greatly contributed to quality clinical service. These have been the cornerstone in Zambia’s quest to attain the health related millennium development goals (MDGs).
We continue to ride on the tide of positive change that was ushered by the Strategic Plan 2012-2016 which has placed upon our shoulders responsibility for leadership in the health training field. Indeed, we have had a significant growth in our capacity for delivery of a lot more academic good. The Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery MB ChB) curriculum has been reviewed and is in its 2nd year of implementation, and in September 2013 we start the first clinical year on this reviewed curriculum.  This gives us an excitement that drives us to sharpen our tools for the implementation of this new curriculum. This curriculum is a forerunner of all the other curricula which are currently undergoing the review process as well.
The main change in the curricula is the insistence on each of them being competence based and innovative in its mode of delivery. This is to break the monotony in the processes of training and to bring innovation into the processes of teaching and learning. This is aimed at producing better quality graduates and providing room for increasing the number of enrolments. This is commendable and I particularly thank the Heads of Programs for making this possible as they have been real vision bearers in this whole process.

Do join us on our mission to“To provide excellent tertiary education and training in health sciences in order to address current and emerging health needs” as we progress towards our vision of being “A leader in Tertiary Health, Education, Care and Research in the Region by 2030”.

Best wishes!
