12 years after, Benue varsity to induct medical students

Written By Idoma Television on Thursday, October 15, 2015 | 11:21:00 AM

After 12 years of its establishment, the College of Health Sciences of the Benue State University (BSU) in  Makurdi is ready to induct its first set of doctors. The college had been granted full clinical accreditation by the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN).
Governor Samuel Ortom made this known at a two-day executive retreat at New Banquet Hall of the Benue Peoples House in the state capital.

The government had recently secured a loan of N10billion, part of which was meant for the purchase of medical equipment for the college to meet its accreditation requirements.
Ortom promised that he would ensure the School of Nursing and Midwifery also regained its accreditation status, which it lost three years ago.
The graduating students spent 12 years in the medical college because of the MDCN accreditation. Medicine and Surgery is a six-year course. Some students could not complete their studies and left the school.
