Located in the historic town 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. Through many incarnations the University of Gondar maintained a steady commitment to quality education, focused research and relevant community services. Currently the University is made up of the College of Medicine and Health Sciences, the Faculties of Agriculture; Veterinary Medicine, Business and Economics Social Sciences and Humanities and Natural and Computational Sciences, and the Schools of Law, Technology and Education. We offer 56 undergraduate and 64 postgraduate programs in our regular, extension, distance and summer programs (including a Public Health PhD program which is handled in collaboration with Addis Continental Institute of Public Health).
