Welcome to the new class of 2021 at the Hamlin College of Midwives!
In May 2021 the Hamlin College of Midwives was delighted to welcome the new cohort of students for the 2021/22 academic year.
The long-awaited new batch of 20 students have since completed their orientation, started their first semester classes and are progressing well.
This year, following consultation with government health bodies at the Federal level the college has for the first time focused student recruitment entirely on students from the Gambela and Benishangul regions of western Ethiopia.
Training students from these remote areas will have a significant impact on improving maternal healthcare services in both regions.
Hanan Abdulahi a new student from Benishangul region told us,
“I am interested in studying health sciences and when I found out I had been awarded the Hamlin midwifery scholarship it was like a dream come true.
“Before I came here, I expected the college to be similar to other government universities, however since I have arrived I feel it is far better. What interests me most is that here we not only study academically, but the college also ensures we become ethically disciplined. I like everything here!”
