Adewole cautions Nigerians on medical education in Ukraine
The Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole, has warned Nigerian students intending to study medicine in Ukraine to be careful in their choice of institutions and be sure of their authenticity.
Adewole, who made this known in Abuja, said that the federal government had recently been notified by the Ukrainian Ministry of Health that it could not guarantee the quality of education delivered to both Ukrainian and foreign students by the Odessa National Medical University.
The minister informed that the decision by the Ukrainian Ministry of Health was based on the result of an International Monitoring Study of Quality of Higher Medical Education conducted in Ukrainian Medical Universities dated March 25, 2019 from which the Odessa Medical University exempted itself.
He therefore warned intending Nigerian students seeking admission to institutions in Ukraine to note the development before submitting their applications to the affected institution.
He also called on parents and guardians to monitor their children to ensure they did not fall victim of similar problem in other countries, just as he advised that prospective candidates, seeking admission into medical school should apply in Nigeria, except on very special course that may not be available in Nigerian university.
