Medical students to spend 11 years – NUC


The National Universities Commission has stated that any student who wants to study medicine will henceforth spend a minimum of 10 to 11 years for the programme.

Its Executive Secretary, Prof. Julius Okojie, stated this while delivering a lecture at the matriculation and inauguration of the University of Medical Science, Ondo, Ondo State.


n a lecture titled ‘Development of Medical Education: Prospects and Challenges’, Okojie, represented by the Deputy Executive Secretary of the commission, Prof. Chiedu Mafiana, said the move became imperative in order to enable the students to mature psychologically for the profession.

He said the 2015 document for the training of medical students made provision for students to spend four years studying basic sciences after which they would proceed to the medical school to spend another seven years.
