The deplorable state of the teaching hospital, poor workers’ welfare conditions as well as deficiencies by the regulatory body has eventuated in the withdrawal of the Abia State University’s Medicine and Surgery accreditation by the Nigerian Universities Commission (NUC) amid lamentations by the Nigeria Medical Association (NMA) and parents. Daily Trust on Sunday presents details of the development.
The withdrawal of accreditation for the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery at Abia State University by the National Universities Commission (NUC) has been blamed on the near-state of inactivity of its teaching hospital, occasioned by its deplorable state and poor welfare condition of workers.
Findings revealed that the NUC revoked the accreditation due to deficiencies discovered by the regulatory body. The teaching hospital, said to be in a terrible condition and not conducive for learning, serves as a training environment for clinical medical students.
