An application form has to be filled for each application. This is obtained from the Institute on request and upon payment of a non-refundable application fee of: ZW$50 for Zimbabwean applicants and US$10 for those applying from outside the country. No consideration will be taken of an application which is not lodged on the official application form.

Please address requests for the application forms to:

It is the responsibility of every applicant to provide the Institute with written evidence of having secured a training post with the Ministry of Health & Child Welfare, Government of Zimbabwe, before the application can be considered. Where appropriate, proof of registration with the Health Professions Council of Zimbabwe shall be required before the course begins.

Notes For Non-Zimbabwean Applicants
The Faculty of Medicine encourages applications by foreign (non-resident) students.
Please note:
  1. Student Permits must be obtained before arriving in Zimbabwe: candidates are advised to take the letter offering them a place with the University to the nearest Zimbabwean Embassy (Mission);
  2. The following Documents (all originals) are required for registration with the Health Professions Council of Zimbabwe (HPC):
    • Original Certificate of the primary qualification (e.g. MB ChB, or RGN, BSc Physiotherapy, etc.)
    • A Certificate of Good Standing from the applicant's own country's Medical Council / registering authority; this certificate must not be more than two months' old at the time of application;
    • two references by senior professionals;
    • A certificate of proficiency in English (obtain from your local University Department of Linguistics).

    Candidates apply directly to the HPC. Applications will only be considered when the applicant is on Zimbabwean soil.

  3. All such applicants are required to be entirely self funding with respect to: transport to Zimbabwe and back to their countries at the end of training, tuition fees, accommodation, transport and subsistence during the course of their programme. Currently, there are no scholarships on offer within Zimbabwe. Prospective candidates are therefore encouraged to approach their governments for sponsorship; alternatively, there are a number of international agencies that offer similar scholarships. The Institute requires written evidence of an offer of sponsorship (including self).
