Thank you very much and amen to your wonderful prayer.

I pray we all prosper in our endeavours. Small, small, we go reach our destination.

I know of one lawyer that went back to medicine. I was a Youth Corps member then. By now, he should have rounded up. So, you see, irrespective of the background, it's very possible to study medicine.

Wish you all the best, sir. Have a nice evening.

sir, I'm an aspiring medical student, I need clarification on this cos it's been bothering me for a while..
1) the stories i do hear on how hard is it to get a placement of housemanship/ internship how true is it?
2) about residency, cos the main reason I wanna be a medic is to be a brain surgeon, how hard is it to get a residency in neurosurgery in Nigeria?...does the stress Worth it?

1. Housejob placement is hard to come by, true; however, you have at least 6 years before you graduate and a new reform could sort this out.

2. There are entry exams into the postgraduate college. Pass the exam and you're in. Then you look for a centre that'd accept you. I think this is how it works.

I think you should concentrate on the immediate challenge which is getting into the program and graduating. Every other thing would fall in place, one way or the other.

1. It is quite hard but it is not impossible.
Most teaching hospitals still collect merit before any other backdoor transaction would occur.
When that time comes, spread your search to all part of Nigeria.

2. I don't know if we run neurosurgery in Nigeria. If we do, I think it is almost the same with housemanship. There's room for merit then connections would carry the remaining.

Another Question, for anyone who knows how medicine in Ekiti State University works, is the College of Medicine located on the same grounds as the main school?

Hi Darasimi, you can ask me questions pertaining to EKSU.

EKSU college of medicine is in the same place as the main campus but EKSUTH isn't.

Hello Docs, I have a lot of questions about Unical admission processing for this year.
I was told it's all about UTME score and that post utme has been scrapped for now. How true is this pls?
Will Olevel result be used as a criteria for admission?
What are my chances of being admitted with a good JAMB score but average Olevel, I'm from kwara state.
Will it be a good thing for me to change my choice of institution to Unical now?

Firstly,What's ur jamb score?

And it seems true that there will be no post utme this year for Unical, at least I'm 90% certain of that. You can still change to Unical now but it is at ur own risk, just be prepared for any eventualities but it should reflect before they start anyways. To be safe, make sure you have a very sound O level result with ur high jamb score just in case they decide to use waec just the way Uniport did.

So back to my first question. What's ur jamb score? ��. Let's start from there.

Sorry for the late reply sir, my jamb score is 332.
I sincerely believe my chances will only be high up there with only UTME.
What do you suggests pls?

Yes, the portal is still open for registration.
