Welcome to Addis Ababa Medical University College Hargeisa (AAMUCH) where excellence is cherished, pursued and celebrated. Since our inception in 2008, we have established ourselves as the premier Health Sciences University in Somaliland. Over the last 10 years, we have developed graduates who are confident citizens, equipped to make a positive contribution to our nation. Through sustained improvements in our curriculum, facilities and resources, at AAMUCH we aim to continue to make real contributions in bringing social benefits to the wider community. 

Yet the challenges remain steep in a region that has some of Africa's highest maternal and child mortality rates. Life expectancy is estimated to be 50 years for males and 55 years for females. Somaliland currently ranks as 161 out of 163 least developed countries in the world which illustrates the difficulty of the task at hand.
To tackle such an enormous challenge, we aim to overcome it with our unrelenting ambition and drive. At AAMUCH, we continuously search for new ways to improve current medical practices in Somaliland. Students already participate in research based learning and community out-reach programs which offer them real life experience that will benefit them immensely so that they can play a part in improving our region. Our recent partnership with GARGAAR MULTI SPECIALTY HOSPITAL will also allow students to learn in a professional environment in a collaborative effort that will improve the quality of our graduates greatly. Our top students also are offered the opportunity to pursue a master’s degree at the well-renowned Jimma University through our newly partnership.

 My vision for our great institution is for people to choose AAMUC-H because of its reputation for quality and to participate in changing the world. As we look to the future one thing is certain – knowledge will be a key resource and will be highly sought-after within Somaliland and around the world. We aim to continue to strive for greatness and on our quest; we hope to have a real impact in improving the current health situation in East Africa.

 We look forward to welcoming you to Addis Ababa Medical University College Hargeisa Campus.
