History Medical education in Ghana started in 1962 with the establishment of the University of Ghana Medical School. To meet the growing demand for doctors by the Ghanaian population, the School of Medical Sciences in KNUST was set up in 1975 to train doctors and other health professionals. This was followed by the establishment of the University for Development Studies (UDS) School of Health Sciences in 2006 to train doctors with a focus on helping to solve the developmental problems in the North of Ghana. In 2009, the University of Cape Coast also set up a medical school with the aim of supplementing the medical education currently provided. Plans are also underway at the University of Health and Allied Sciences, in the Volta Region, to set up a medical school to train doctors for the nation. However, all of these schools currently graduate only about 400 doctors a year that means that many very qualified Ghanaian candidates are turned away. The Accra College of Medicine seeks to begin to plug this hole by admitting 60 of such students each year. Vision:TO BECOME A LEADER IN MEDICAL EDUCATION IN GHANA AND AFRICA.
