International Handbook of Medical Education

By Abdul W. Sajid; Christine H. McGuire et al. | Go to book overview

GOVERNMENT/PRIVATE SECTOR INVOLVEMENT
Medical education in Nigeria is at the moment entirely governmental (federal and state).
INTERNATIONAL LINKAGES AND COLLABORATION
A number of medical schools have international linkages through associations like the Network of Community Oriented Educational Institutions for Health Sciences. There are also collaboration with the World Health Organization and a number of institutions/corporations overseas, particularly in the US, including Carnegie, Johns Hopkins, and the Ford Foundation.
ISSUES AND TRENDS
At the present stage of our development, there is general consensus that the following are urgent priorities:
1. Fostering community-based medical education while simultaneously maintaining a balanced production of qualified hospital-based physicians, (i.e., specialists).
2. Redirecting the training of community health workers and nurses toward the delivery of primary health care in order to meet the population's health needs.
3. Developing a comprehensive data base and information network to provide precise and accurate information regarding the health profile of the population and available resources and services.
4. Strengthening interinstitutional and multidisciplinary research to address the numerous and diverse societal concerns and needs.

However, given the limitations on our resources, clearly we will require considerable time to achieve our goals.
