The Council of Ministers established St Paul’s Hospital Millennium Medical College (SPHMMC) in 2010. However, the medical school was opened in 2007. The hospital was opened in 1968 by Emperor Haile Selassie. It started Ethiopia’s first integrated modular and hybrid problem-based curriculum for undergraduate medical education. It’s currently expanding to postgraduate programs and increasing its undergraduate programs.
Paul’s college has over 2800 clinical, academic, administrative, and support staff that provide specialty services to patients referred from Ethiopia. The staff also teaches medicine & nursing students and participates in basic and applied research. The college offers healthcare and training to its students through its different biomedical and clinical departments. The hospital’s inpatient capacity is over 700 beds. However, the hospital sees 1200 emergency & outpatient clients on average every day.
To help the hospital, the Coca-Cola Foundation awards a $300,000 grant to MedShare International to provide medical supplies and equipment to St. Paul’s Hospital Millennium Medical College. The equipment included obstetrics & gynecology, pediatric products, biomedical, and Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs). These supplies improve St. Paul’s Hospital’s healthcare & treatment resilience to serve the most susceptible regions in Addis Ababa and nearby communities.
