Message from the Academic and Research Vice Provost
Adama Hospital Medical College feels the national urgency of training higher medical professionals to meet minimum physician to population ratio. With this goal, AHMC was established in 2011 GC. Even though it is only few years since its establishment, the college has taken decisive steps in program expansion and quality training. In addition to medical students, the college is training students with programs of masters of Integrated Emergency Surgery and Gyn/Obs and Residency in general surgery and Gyn/Obs.
Following request from Oromia Regional Health Biro, we are also training anesthesia Level V and Radiographers Level III and IV. The critical shortage of these lower professionals was also shared with the region as our hospital and affiliated hospitals were some of the real evidences.
Recently, the college continued its expansion by launching training on Masters of Public Health and Masters in Public Microbiology. With our long vision and strong commitment, more training programs are to come. Already two specialty programs namely, Specialty Certificates in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics and Child Health are in pipe line. I presume Adama Hospital Medical College will grasp available opportunities and continue to grow to fulfill its vision and mission by committing itself to quality education.


  • We inspire seeing Adama hospital Medical College being center of excellence in the country in terms of producing high level health professionals and advancing in research activities.


  • To produce competent, motivated and committed medical professionals for the 21st century, who can provide highest standard health care to the Ethiopian population
