The PAMAPS Project is a mobility programme in the area of postgraduate medical academic specialities. The project is designed to facilitate movement of Masters Students, PhD students and Staff between selected partner Universities in four regions of Africa (West, Central, East and South). The project will focus on postgraduate medical education and research as a means of capacity development by making available a variety of postgraduate degrees and research opportunities to students in the field of medical sciences. These Students and Staff mobility activities have the potential to increase the competitiveness and attractiveness of the participating Universities towards the overall aim of encouraging ‘brain gain’ rather than ‘brain drain’ in Africa.
