nchewi:

Which of the Federal Science schools? Sokoto or Ogoja

Physiologist ought to Med. Researchers!! It's a pity how irrelevant, relegated n underrated the course has become especially in Naija. Nigeria is lagging behind because research isn't supported by d system. All they care about is Oil n Politics. I'll give u guys gist sha.
Am a non-practicing Physiologist by d way!
I want to hear ur gist. fstc edo state

Most people are being negative, there are opportunities here. Lecturing is not bad. If you really wanna go into research, u av to lecture. Or work with a research institute. And it pays well too. My friend finished with physiology last year and he's working with a research institute here in Nigeria, he's not even gone for service yet. Stop complaining and look for ways where there seems to be no way (btw, am an Anatomist)

Its quite sad to see that there are limited opportunities for growth in Nigeria. My fiance did Pol. Sci in Nigeria, came to the US to do an MPA. When he saw how much money physical therapists make shocked , he immediately digressed into a DPT program for 3 years and he'll do the MPH later. These A&P classes were so hard for him, but thank God its over. These people make at least $80/hr. Nigeria shouldn't take it for granted. What a waste of skill.

If i may ask, what is the full meaning for DPT, A&P. And do you mean MPA where you wrote MPH again? I bet more explanation on this would go a long way.

Better by far,Physiology, Class 2011

still searching for a job, but i really have few regrets, fine, i no its not d most marketable course in nigeria, but having a good grade gives u hope.its not all about health, already applyin to sum financial institutions,i know i will make it.
Present students, d worst thing u will do is to say because d course isnt hot cake, u will slouch and den get a mediocre or poor grade wen leaving school, how does dat help u!

I am a graduate of physiology too, but having read all this posts and comments, I'ld say not all of then are totally -always- true. You tend to be boxed up in such cases mostly when your grades are poor. To present Physiology students or any other Basic Medical Course, Please try to understand the course you are reading, its not a proffesional course, but rather a study course grin.. its not such that you finish and make money by getting employed in a bank or hospital straight away.. those guys who can use their grades to get into Medical school, I do encourage, for those whose grades are not good enough, enroll for a masters course.. an perhaps continue in research or lecture, for your information ..lecturing is not a small cake o..you could make a fortune there too. For those who move out into other fields, no hurts, if you're satisfied.

well some schools in Nigeria would require that you do the youth service year for direct entry, you can checkk the UTME brochure for that info.

Okechukwu chidiebere(Gurugenius) ''speaking for unizik SPAN & NAUBAMSSA'' Am a student of human physiology in unizik, everybody is saying that there is no job in anat and physio,then tell me any course you will finish studying in naija and u'l get an automatic job guarantee,the thing is that the physiology is divided clinical physiology and research.but the problem is with the ministry of health they dont want to implement clinical physiology as part of the health as it is being done in USA and UK. So thats why everybody is complaining in uk NHS trains physiology graduates in clinical physiology,for anatomy there is opportunities in stem cell transplants,transplantational medicine,histopathology,ART and clinical embryology,forensic medicine and anthropometry, but in naija it is all like a mirage. For the research we only have the NIMR which emplores only doctors,inwhich bms graduates are potential researchers in medicine and health sectors thats why nobel prize is shared b/w medicine and physiology. But they the ministry of health dont care. I think what is suppose to be döne is for the so called psn which is dormant dat is physiological society of nigeria,dats of anatomy,asson and span should organise a conference and invite the minister of health,the min.of science and tech, the min.of edu.,the nuc, and the various stakeholders of the various health sectors. Either to upgrade the basic medical science course in nigeria or abolish the bsc program by offering it only in postgraduate level. Although all over the world it is not a professional field. But they provide good parkage for the graduates in either research or clinical jobs. Pls i need comments.

Re: Human Anatomy & Physiology Graduates: Lets Meet Here by Olucheye(m): 1:01pm On Feb 09, 2013
Hi all most especially gurugenius, welcome to the thread. I speak as a graduate of Human Anatomy from one of the Nigerian univerisities. The next ASSON (National Anatomy student society) conference will be held in my Alma mata and having being discouraged by a couple of my lecturers, i formally had th intent of submitting a paper that BMS courses should be scrapped at Undergraduate level save maybe Biochemisty for its appliciation in the industrial field.

So to say we've found ourselves in fields that are not marketable in the present day Nigeria and to counter your words earlier, Most fields in other fields happen to marketable just the poor job availablity in such sectors unlike BMS courses that happen not to even have an job option in the country.The above is the reason why i move for it being scraped! The only viable option for Anatomist which could have either Forensics or Research development in areas like embroylogy, are areas that the Nigerian govt. Clearly doesn't have plans for.

The other supposed job prospect for BMS graduates, LECTURING happens to be å field where everyone can't be. I for one happen to be å very bad teacher and same as others that have met across the BMS clime. Its best advicable that graduates from this field who are not so lucky to have found themselves working in other sectors of the economy, should focus on how well they could better themselves in terms of either studying further to get advanced degrees of choice like I'm doing or read better to find themselves in specialized areas of BMS.

I met up with a prof of Histochemistry or so from Canada some weeks back. A Nigerian for that matter and he happens to be doing fine. He's getting well paid for his researches by the German government. That is one out of the very few sucessful have met. Else, a further degree in Medicine or Radiography won't be a bad idea. My 2Cent.

Thanks olucheye, thats why i said that there should be a conference inviting the various stakeholders in education,health and labour sector to discuss on these. Either they upgrade bsc anatomy and bsc physiology to a better standard in these country or better scrap it off,inorder not to suffer the people.

i am happy that the reason i formed this forum is gradually manifesting. The question is, how can we organise this conference? when and where will span hold her next national conference? How can BMS students and graduates nationwide meet?

Winners72: Hello bro, it will do me no good if i decieve you. I have been in this mess for sometyms now and the only thing dat i can remember now is regret studying a paramedical. Pharmacy is also a paramedical. There is just little difference between it and physiology. If u are my blood brother, i would have advised you to study medicine eles, change your course completely to pure sciences like geology or even microbiology and biochemistry. And one derogatory thing is that those microbiology and BCH do even have medical applications than anatomy, physiology or even pharmacy cos in every starndard hospital in nigeria, there cannot be more than 2 pharmacists that are employed and more or less treated like anatomists and co. So use your head oooo. There is no future and prospects for such courses in nigeria and the world @ large. Even if you become a professor in a paramedical course, the rate @ which u will be discriminated against cannot be explained. So if u still want to be relevant to the medical world, go for medicine. Meanwhile, u may be studying ur physiology and obtain another jamb, perhaps you are tired of sitting @ home. But remember, i will never mislead you. I have seen it all and have concluded dat if God will punish a man, He will give him admission into a paramedical course in nigeria.
Pharmacy is a useless course? I cant believe someone is saying this. My bro, pls do your research and u will knw dat wat u said above concersing pharmacy is false. Truth be told, u can not compare the course with BMS.

As for d guy complainin bout pharm/pysio, u had beta cross to pharmacy, since dat is wia yr interest lies, and dont let any one discourage you.

From the job duties listed by tpia@,BMS is bam but in Nigeria,the doctors are doing their jobs and ours as well.I'm happy people are thinking in the same direction as I am.if we don't speak,who will?as a graduate of physiology,I don't see what the physiology society of nigeria is doing about it as it seems to me that they are all content with lecturing.who are we even kidding?nothing will be done unless the core BMS graduates rise and speak not doctors who go for our Msc and Phd programs and then,come to supervise the affairs of another professional body.can a basic medical graduate be taken seriously by the NMA when he makes contributions to their policies?I joined the physiology society worldwide on linkedin and I'm currently pursuing a grant to enable me do a tv show for a year through which basic medical sciences will be brought to light and hopefully be included in the government and private schemes of service.its a tough fight but with one voice we can be heard.nothing good comes easy.

Whenever I sit down trying to contemplate on the prospect of physiology,I shook my head 4 d upcoming 1 coming behind in this field and feel the pain of some graduate in BMS course but I think that only won't help. Can you imagine a MBBS graduate given admission to study master in PHS at ease,diversifying into various BMS course with relieve while they make it tedious 4 graduate of BMS to come into there career. They even proof to know more than those who specialise in BMS,well am not to contend with them here. But what is ASSON,SPAN,physiological society of 9ja doing on this. If pals won't take it personal I think BMS course should be abolished at undergraduate level because most of there work ar caried out by doctors and seems to knw much. Honestly with the present situation on ground there isn't suitable job prospect for BMS in the health sector except lecturing or either going into other field like financial institutn wich wil nt have room for unprofession. BMS is nt even profession,what are those carry headed body of BMS doing to get there price. Liverpool where av u been since, UNN genius welcm,vrybody here let make our contribution. More to talk of but I will like to hear from you guys. 1 LUV

When i was in sch(AAU), i though all i needed to do was to read, hv a gud grade believing with that, a gud life is guaranted. All these i did by God's grace only to be shocked by the outside world after service. E.g Do you know that i was not given admission to do my msc at uniben even when we did not write any exam. My cgpa was 4.1. When i was showed the admission list, they admitted 12 students. I started this forum a month after my NYSC when i did not even see physiology in Airforce, Army, Navy etc online DSSC exercise. I have to call them to express my displeasure about the ommission of physiology in the list of course of study (though they apologized). We must do something or else, the money spent on BMS will be considered a misused fund. I love you all.
