This study explored the potential of mLearning and developed mLearning model for the training of health workers in Ethiopia. The finding of this study shows that health workers. trainers and policy makers and alike see much potential in using mLearning for the training of health workers to improve the quality of training provided in the Health Science Colleges by loading audio-visual teaching aids, short message service, improving communication between trainers and students, and ultimately equipping learners with the necessary knowledge and skill for better health outcomes.
