Welcome to PAMAPS Project

PAMAPS is a partnership of six African Universities in West, East, Central and South lead by College of Medicine, University of Ibadan, Nigeria. The members of the partnership are College of Medicine, University of Ibadan (COMUI), Nigeria; Addis Ababa University (AAU), Ethiopia; University of Cape Town (UCT), South Africa; University of Lagos (CMUL), Nigeria;  University of Nairobi (CHS-UoN), Kenya  and Faculty of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, University of Yaoundé I (FMBS/UYI), Cameroon. The Project is being funded under the Intra ACP Academic Mobility Scheme. The project supports staff and students exchange in selected specialties in different aspects of medicine within and outside the five member countries of the partnership. PAMAPS also builds local training, teaching and research capacity of physician-scientists in the HEIs through seminars and workshops.

PAMAPS Project objectives

The main objective of PAMAPS Project is to build capacities and enhance performance of a new generation of physician-scientists through coordinated actions that will harness both professional and academic resources from six African HEIs.

Specific objectives:

  1. To implement physician-students exchange and staff mobility exchange systems in support of the MSc. and Ph.D. programmes in highly-specialised medical disciplines.
  2. To provide platforms for African physicians to obtain joint/dual sandwich postgraduate medical science degrees.
  3. To develop legal frameworks between the HEIs within this consortium for recognition of qualifications and transfer of credits.
  4. To develop inter-institutional guidelines for exchange of staff in academia/research within Africa HEIs on short-term basis.
  5. To build local training/teaching/research capacity of physician-scientists in the HEIs through seminars and workshops.
