Located in the historic city of Gondar, Ethiopia, the University of Gondar is one of the oldest and most
well established higher education institutions in the country. Our University was established in 1954 as a
Public Health College and Training Center (PHC & TC) in joint effort between the Imperial Ethiopian
government, WHO, United States Operation Mission to Ethiopia, and UNICEF. Dictated by the pressing
health needs that existed in the 1940s and 1950s the PHC & TC quickly became established as a pioneer
center for public health practice serving as a key source of Ethiopia’s health professionals. It remains the
Ethiopia’s oldest medical training institution.Vist University of Gondar website
