In Feb 2012, a shipment of new, up to date, medical textbooks arrived at COTC, Mtwara. The books were carefully selected as highly relevant to the COTC curriculum and will significantly increase access to learning resources for clinical officer students. The books were donated by UK publishers and sourced and shipped by the British Medical Journal charity group BMJ4Life. BMJ4Life has been a supporter of PaLM for 2 years. PaLM would like to thank all at BMJ4Life for their work on this project.
