Overtime, Nigerians have grown to believe that their fatherland cannot and will never be able to afford standard education for her medical students. This is why those who can afford it go to other countries to take medical courses. With a critical analysis of the Nigerian Medical sector, you will find out that this opinion is just true to a small extent. Nigeria has been doing a lot recently to see that the Nigerian Universities offering Medical courses are well equipped to meet the standard. Therefore, citizens who intend taking medicine related courses should be rest assured that there are actually schools who have what it takes to give them the desired and expected education and training.
10. Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma (AAU)
It is the last in our list, but that does not mean that it is relatively ill equipped. It ranks as one of the best at the moment, if not, it would not have made it to this list. One very interesting thing about AAU is that they hardly go on strike, so you are assured of a smooth and uninterrupted program.
9. University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN)
University of Nigeria remains one of the best Universities in Nigeria at the moment. The federal government who owns and runs the schools are really doing a lot to see that it is well equipped to produce professionals in the area of medicine. UNN has a very impressive Teaching hospital.
8. Delta State University, Abraka (DELSU)
The Delta State University is among the Nigerian Universities that have a standard teaching hospital. In fact, critical Medical cases like kidney transplant is being well taken care of now at the Delta State University Teaching Hospital.
7. Lagos State University (LASU)
The Lagos University Teaching Hospital and the Medical School Complex grew out of a Cabinet decision of April, 1961 when the Council of Ministers set up a Cabinet Committee to consider the recommendations of Sir Eric Ashby’s Commission on Post-Secondary Education in Nigeria. Since then, the Lagos State University has continued to rank top in the list of best Universities in terms of studying Medical sciences.
