Government tertiary referral hospital and is the largest hospital in Malawi
This is a large government hospital offering the range of specialist departments such as surgery, medicine, obs & gynae, paediatrics etc.
In collaboration with surgeons at Kamuzu Central Hospital in Lilongwe, Malawi, the Malawi College of Medicine in Blantyre, Haukland University Department of Surgery, Bergen, Norway and the University of North Carolina Departments of Surgery and Otolaryngology/Head & Neck Surgery, a new surgical resident training program was established at Kamuzu Central Hospital in July 2009. The program is accredited by the College of Surgeons of Eastern, Central and Southern Africa (COSECSA). After 5 years of post medical school training, these young men and women will spend a lifetime providing surgical care to some of the poorest people in the world. In addition, they will become the faculty for the self-sustaining training program, training generations of surgeons and leaders.
Providing surgical care requires a diverse team of professionals: general and subspecialty surgeons, anesthesiologists, intensive care physicians, nurses, pathologists and radiologists. The Malawi Surgical Initiative brings together professionals from UNC and other institutions to provide training for the KCH General Surgery Residency Program and conduct research.

The hospital is located within a short distance from the main airport in Lilongwe (20 Km).
