Masasi COTC is located within Masasi Town near the town district hospital (Mkomaindo hospital). Masasi town is the headquarters of Masasi district which one of the six districts of the Mtwara Region of Tanzania. It is bordered to the North by the Lindi Region, to the East by the Newala District, to the South by the Ruvuma River and Mozambique and to the West by Nanyumbu District.

Masasi COTC is a public owned institution under the Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly and Children. Admission to this college is open to all Tanzanians who have their Certificate for Secondary Education with required passes as stipulated in the entry requirements for each course offered by this institution. I would like to encourage all young Tanzanians who wish to serve as medical personnel’s to apply and join this institution.
Masasi COTC has a very conducive environment for every student to learn medical practice in classes and clinical areas. All students are accommodated at the hostels found within the college campus. The college environment also enables students to develop good disciplinary conducts which is a key for success in their studies. Every student is encouraged to read and understand all disciplinary codes which guide their stay at the college. There is also a good environment for sports and games for students to refresh their minds.
Good relationship between staff, students and community members has been one of the important tools for success of the college. We also enjoy the good relationship we have with the nearby college and the hospital at large in all aspects.
