WELCOME TO THE COLLEGE OF MEDICAL SCIENCES
The College of Medicine was established in 1977, with the mandate of training Physicians and other Professionals in support of national policy objectives in the health and related sectors. The University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital The hospital used by the College for the clinical components of its training is today a Federal Government designated Centre of Excellence in medicine, thanks to the quality of the College staff.
Both the College and the associated Teaching Hospital cater, respectively, to manpower and health needs in Nigeria's expansive north-east, as well as in the adjoining countries of Chad, Niger and Cameroun.
Training of physicians is carried out in two phases: in a pre-clinical phase, across the Departments of Anatomy, Biochemistry and Physiology; and in a clinical phase, across the Departments of Anaesthesia, Chemical Pathology, Community Medicine, Ear, Nose, Throat (ENT), Haematology and Blood Transfusion, Immunology, Medicine, Microbiology, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Ophthalmology, Paediatrics, Pathology, Pharmacology and Radiology.
