FOR ALL STUDENTS IN THE MEDICAL FIELD, LETS MEET HERE (INCLUDING ASPIRANTS)!! by Lagusta(m): 10:45pm On Sep 15, 2012
HI.

I am a final year med student of UNILORIN. I opened this thread cos I noticed there isn't any that is specially for medical students, and I believe this is an opportunity for all docs in the making to meet, chat, share experiences, ask questions, and even make new friends!

Jambitos who wish to study medicine are also welcome...


So, let the clerking and presentation begin!!!!

WELCOME TO DA CLUB!!!!! I promise u will hav an unforgettable experience as u start ur journey....

Since u r a fresher, u will resume 100L studying the basic sciences I.e physics, chemistry and biology, maybe maths (we don't do maths in unilorin). Then u spend the next two years (the preclinical years) studying the basic medical sciences I.e anatomy, physiology and biochenistry. In unilorin, we also do a bit of behavioural sciences, microbiology, epidemiology and a WHO program called COBES.

Now, when u get to 400L, you will do harder basic sciences: pathology and pharmacology, but u will also be introduced to the clinical sciences: medicine surgery, paediatrics and obstetrics and gynaecology. Finally in your last two years, yow will deal with only clinical sciences, including the surgical specialties, community health and psychiatry. Making a total of 6yrs.

After graduation, u will be pre-registered into the MDCN (medical and dental council of nigeria) and start your housemanship for one full year (don't worry, u will be paid salary), then you will go for service, but be preparing to write your primaries exam, in order for u to specialize in your place of interest I.e surgery, am I correct

Well, that's that for now...

aliandro: Sir,wat do u mean by primaries.can u pls list sum of d txt buks u usd 4rm leve 1 to 6.is c.g.p.a or percentage usd in grading mbbs students.

Primaries mean the exam u take that leads to the specialty of ur choice. It is usually written after housejob or service, and depends on the specialty of interest...

CGPA is NOT used in medical school, we use progressive assessment (PA) which is like a percentage, in unilorin, u must make PA of 50% in all subjects before u can be promoted.

Textbooks are numerous, however, these are the few I can give u..

200L and 300L: anatomy
Clinically oriented anatomy by keith moore
Embryology by TM sadler
Basic histology (can't remember the author's name)

Physiology
Review of medical physiology by WF gannong
OR
Physiology by guyton and hull

Biochemistry
Harper's illustrated biochemistry

400L
Pathology
Robbins pathologic basis of disease
(U can also buy textbooks in haematology, microbiology and chemical pathology)

Pharmacology
Lippincott's pharmacology
OR
Katzung's pharmacology

500 and 600L
Paediatrics
Nelson's textbook of paediatrics
OR
Paediatrics by azubike (nigerian author)

Obstetrics and gynaecology
The ten teachers O & G
OR
Textbook of O & G by agoola (nigerian author)

Medicine
Medicine by kumar and clark
Hutchinson's clinical methods (for clerking patients)

Surgery
Bailey and love short practice of surgery
Churchill's pocket textbook of surgery (for exam stuff)
Norman browse surgical methods (for clerking patients)



NB: these books are TERRIBLY expensive, so when u get them, guard them with ur life!!!!!

CHEERS!!

Guy, you want to reject that offer on a platter of gold, given the 9ja situation of things....

Well, I don't blame u, u r still a kid. But, at 14 u enta 4 anatomy, u graduate at 17, u serve @ 18, then u go for direct entry into medicine at 19, dosent that make sense to u

I strongly advice u go for the anatomy, no need to write jamb again, read well, make first class or 2.1, then enta med thru DE. Shikena

TAKIA!!!

Hmmm, don't kno about that, but here in ilorin, freshers pay about 33000 or so, stalites pay about 23000. So, make a rough estimate out of that...

Any medic from these schls are in a better position to answer your question, thanx.

*smiles*

A medic will always have something to say - if not to ask. I like the idea behind creating a thread like this for medical students across Nigeria to share ideas, experiences, secrets and thoughts about the future. Medical schooling in Nigeria is quite challenging - from the entry to the "remaining" to the graduating sef - all na fight. Let's hope the thread doesn't follow the pathway of its predecessors by being lost among the admission jumble around this section.
