The School of Medicine at the Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Sciences (MUHAS), dates back to 1963, when the government of the newly independent Tanganyika started its predecessor, the Dar es Salaam School of Medicine to train licensed non-degree medical practitioners, starting with an intake of eight students. In 1968 the School was upgraded to a Faculty of Medicine (FOM) of the Dar es Salaam University College; a constituent College of the University of East Africa (UEA). With upgrading of the Dar es Salaam University College to the University of Dar es Salaam in 1970, the Faculty of Medicine (FOM) soon initiated its first degree, the Doctor of Medicine (MD) programme.
A number of collaborating partners have made it possible for the School of Medicine to maintain and develop its academic programmes including the Commission for Science and Technology (COSTECH) and the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA) that both support faculty PhD training through grants; the Norwegian Development for Higher Education (NOMA) Training Support, that provides support for extramural clinical rotations for students undertaking our super specialty degree programmes; the NIH/Forgarty International Center’s International Clinical,
The School of Medicine currently hosts eight undergraduate and thirty postgraduate degree programmes. A more recent development has been the initiation of Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) programmes, a welcome product of the diverse research collaborations within the School. The current programmes of the School are as listed below:
Undergraduate Degree Programmes:
Doctor of Medicine (five year programme with an additional one year internship)
