The Sub-Saharan African Medical Schools Study - SAMSS
SAMSS.org is a portal for information on medical education in Sub-Saharan Africa. It highlights reports and articles that shed light on the current state of medical education in the region or describes innovations and trends that will shape the future of medical education in Africa. It also provides links to relevant resources as well as information about the pioneering work done by the SAMSS team.
The Sub-Saharan African Medical Schools Study (SAMSS) is funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, housed within the George Washington University School of Public Health and Health Services, and guided by an Advisory Committee made up of African medical educators, public officials and experts in medical education in Sub-Saharan Africa. The goal of SAMSS is to increase the level of practical knowledge about medical education in Sub-Saharan Africa in order to inform educators, policy makers, and international donors about the challenges and opportunities for increasing the capacity of African medical schools and the retention of their graduates.
