The declaration made by the Tanzania Episcopal Conference (TEC) in 1994 marks the initial thought to establish a Catholic University of Health and Allied Sciences at Bugando. The Decision to establisha medical school was based on the need for the Catholic Church to contribute to the training of more professionals in the country?s health sector. The University retains its location in the premises of the Bugando Medical Centre (BMC) in Mwanza. Its location at BMC remains most appropriate because this 870-bed teaching, referral, and consultant hospital also belongs to the Catholic Church, and serves about one third of country?s population. It provides space and faculty for clinical training of its students with the six regions of Tanzania around Lake Victoria providing the catchments area.
