Accra gets First Private Medical School

The Family Health Hospital at Teshie in Accra has established a medical school to complement the government’s effort in training medical doctors in the country.

The school is equipped with modern facilities and has both local and international lecturers, including professors.

Its facilities include a telemedicine centre where students can have virtual lectures from the USA, Europe and Asia and a house of anatomy for the dissection of cadavers (corpses).

The school is also provided with modern laboratories and equipment for the study of embryology.

Media briefing

The President of the Family Health Medical School, Professor Yao Kwawukume, briefed the media during a tour of the school, and said the school had been accredited by the National Accreditation Board (NAB) and was affiliated to the School of Medicine and Dentistry of the University of Ghana.

He said the school had collaborations with some medical schools in the United States of America and Europe, where students could interact with their mates.

He said the school would begin with 50 fresh students and would offer scholarships to less privileged, brilliant students who qualify to study medicine.


Professor Kwawukume said some students from poor communities who performed creditably in the West Africa Senior School Certificate Examination were unable to pursue their dreams of becoming medical doctors because their families could not afford the cost of their education.

He said the school would take care of such students and train them to serve in their communities after they had completed their study.

Professor Kwawukume reiterated that the demand for medical officers in the country was very high and the government alone could not shoulder the responsibility of satisfying that demand.
