Welcome to Biomedical Sciences Department

Biomedical Sciences department has 4 units namely Foundation, Anatomy, Biochemistry and Physiology.

Foundation Unit

The Unit offers a Foundation Programme also known as the Premedical Science Program for foundation year which was introduced by the University of Malawi to provide the main recruitment base for all undergraduate programmes offered at the College of Medicine. Prospective students used to spend successfully two years at sister colleges before they apply and get enrolled direct into the first year at College of Medicine. The Equivalent first two years spent at Chancellor College (for BSc and B.Ed. Science programme) was later compressed and modified to a single year (Foundation Year) so that students are well prepared in basic sciences for their years of academic work at College of Medicine at the same time considerably reducing the number of years to complete one’s programme of study.
