Dean's Statement

Welcome to Faculty of Basic Medical Sciences, the foundation of Medicine.
We offer courses in Human Anatomy, Human Physiology and Medical Biochemistry to Medical, Dental, Medical Rehabilitation, Medical Laboratory Science, Nursing Science and Radiography students. Recently (2015), three new programmes leading to the award of B.Sc in Human Anatomy, Physiology and Molecular Biology and Genetics were established in the Faculty. The B.Sc. programmmes in Anatomy and Physiology have already been accredited by the NUC and both departments will soon be graduating their pioneer students, while the B.Sc. programme in Molecular Biology & Genetics will soon undergo resource verification and later on, accreditation exercise.
Our Faculty also runs postgraduate programmes leading to the award of M.Sc. and Ph.D in Anatomy, Physiology and Medical Biochemistry. Many great scholars in Nigeria and beyond are products of our Postgraduate programme.
The Faculty has been re-positioned to undertake this onerous academic task of undergraduate and postgraduate training and research across its three departments. As a Faculty in a pioneer University in Nigeria, we are determined to play a leading role in research and postgraduate training to produce the necessary manpower needs for the country and Africa at large in this important but neglected area of basic Medicine.
We are open to collaboration with other Medical Schools in Nigeria, Africa and the rest of the world and presently have linkages with some leading Universities in Europe.
Finally, the Faculty will appreciate support, especially in areas of infrastructural development, provision of laboratory equipment and research funding from well-meaning organizations/individuals to enable us render world class academic services to our students.
Thanks.
