After 13 Years, University of Abuja Gets Approval to Graduate Medical Students

The Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN) has given the University of Abuja approval to prepare its medical students for the final MBBS examinations.

This is coming 13 years after the university’s commencement of the medical programme.

The approval followed the final accreditation visit to the university by the MDCN on November 1, 2017, a statement by the Acting Registrar of the council, Dr. Tajudeen Sanusi, said.

The medical school, started in 2005, has witnessed crises over the non-accreditation of its courses.

According to the statement, the situation changed two years ago with the provision of required facilities leading to the approval by the MDCN.

The council urged the university to proceed with the processes leading to final MBBA examinations for students. “You must notify council to send observers to the examinations at the appropriate time.”
