NMA ex-president laments challenges facing medical education

Former president of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA), Prof. Dominic Osaghae, has expressed worry over the increasing challenges facing medical education in the country.

Describing them as unacceptable, he said they portend a bleak future for the medical profession.According to him, it is trite to say that our medical schools are set up to produce medical manpower for export, and the situation further reinforces that the government and people of Nigeria are subsidising the production of medical manpower for developed countries.

Speaking during the 4th White Coat Ceremony of the School of Clinical Medicine, Igbinedion University Okada (IUO), Edo State, Osaghae said the country had continued to witness inexorable and unprecedented export of medical personnel to more developed countries.
