Hamlin’s Postgraduate Masters of Science Degree in Clinical Midwifery

Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia’s new Masters Postgraduate Degree at the Hamlin College of Midwives in Addis Ababa will now launch in the academic year of 2021 (launch date has been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic). The first intake will take twenty masters students. All students will receive a full scholarship, thanks to our generous supporters. Hamlin’s goal is to continue to scale up and increase future intakes to thirty students annually. As a postgraduate program, the Masters consists of 55 credit hours of study and 582 hours of clinical practice that will be completed over two and a half years of study.
