With 19 million people—but fewer than 60 surgeons and 10 anesthesiologists—Malawi's surgical needs are staggering.

One major obstacle to quality surgical care in Malawi is lack of funding for specialized education.


In 2020, Physicians for Peace committed to providing full scholarships to train anesthesia and surgical residents at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital, Malawi's largest teaching hospital. 

Physicians for Peace Scholars are committed to practicing in their home country, recognizing the significant impact they will make to fill Malawi's gap in surgical care.


They embrace the responsibility and the opportunity to teach their skills to other healthcare providers.

PFP Scholars are remarkable young doctors who are dedicated not only to mastering their chosen medical specialty, but to their greater role in strengthening Malawi's healthcare system from within.
