MBBS CURRICULUM

An Integrated, Competency-based Curriculum.

 

 

 

PREFACE

The quality of medical training is the acquisition of the ethics and ethos of the medical profession. These values are defined by the acquisition of well-defined set of competences. The breadth and depth of these competences define the educational training institution and its uniqueness. To achieve the knowledge and skills that ensure quality medical education, institutions have based their quality of graduates on a tripod of infrastructure, quality of teachers and uniqueness of the training curriculum which have varied from the traditional knowledge driven to the contemporary global trend of competency based learning with simulation.

 

Edo University, Iyamho (EUI) College of Medical Sciences understands that in order to impact optimally on the national health system and health outcomes of patients and populations, its medical education can only be achieved in a curriculum design and instructional process involving competences, systems of instruction of studies as well as teaching technologies. The competency-based curriculum adopted by EUI is a disciplined approach which specifies health problems to be addressed, identifies the requisite competences required to achieve these competences and assess achievements and shortfalls. This curriculum is a blend of materials from more than six existing programmes, global best practices and experiences of the team members who are drawn from a wide range of disciplines and some of whom have participated in curriculum development and implementation.

 

In line with BMAS of the NUC, EUI has adopted the system-based, integrated student centred, tutor-facilitated, competency driven and community oriented curriculum with the expectation of skills laboratories and the community orientation of training. The end product is a curriculum that is competency and outcome based. It is the hope that the curriculum will serve the immediate needs and future expectations of the stakeholders.

REAMBLE

 

    1. The history of Edo University, Iyamho College of Medical Sciences

The Edo University, Iyamho was established by Edo University Uzairue law (2014) and subsequently amended to Edo University, Iyamho, Uzairue, (Amendment Law) 2015 and further amended as Edo University Iyamho (Amendment Law) 2016. The amendment to the law 2015 enables the university to be located at Iyamho, Uzairue, Etsako –West Local Government area of Edo State. The Edo University Iyamho was accorded recognition and issued license by the National Universities Commission (NUC) on 23rd March, 2016, as the 41st state owned University and 142nd University in Nigeria.

 

The purpose for establishing the University is to meet the increasing demands for quality tertiary education in Edo state in particular and Nigeria as a whole. The Edo State Government also realised that developing human capital through quality education is the key to meaningful development of the state, hence the need to establish a university that will provide quality education. The Edo University, Iyamho is expected to propel social, economic, political, cultural, scientific and industrial growth of the Edo State and Nigeria.

 

In 2014, the state government, in pursuit of its goals of providing and ensuring health care delivery to all, established the College of Medical Sciences as a unit of the Edo University, Iyamho.
