Irving Hoffman is a professor in the UNC School of Medicine, international director of UNC Project-Malawi, and director of international operations for the Institute for Global Health and Infectious Diseases. For the past 25 years, he has worked tirelessly to ensure Malawians who seek specialty training in clinical medicine receive the training they need to work in Malawi’s academic or public settings. Among the 13 Malawians who have completed training, 12 are currently practicing in Malawi. A new library on the Project-Malawi campus honors Hoffman’s passion for making an education available to all. A plaque outside the library recognizes his “untiring effort to provide medical education to the people of Malawi.”
