The University of Medical Sciences, Ondo City, Ondo State, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the West African College of Surgeons.
The agreement, which was signed at WACS Permanent Secretariat, Yaba, Lagos, would provide an opportunity for resident surgeons from Nigeria and across the West African region to undergo a PhD programme in UNIMED.
The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Adesegun Fatusi, in a statement signed by the institution, said the partnership was a significant landmark for Nigeria and the West African sub-region.
“The beauty of this partnership is that it opens any candidate to have his or her PhD research projects supervised by the best of professionals and leading researchers within the university and health systems in Nigeria and across West Africa who are Fellows of the West African College of Surgeons,” he said.
In his remarks, the President, WACS, Professor Emmanuel Ezomme, said the partnership with UNIMED would be of immense benefit to both the college and the university.
