About 437 foreign medical students who sat for the Medical Dental Council of Nigeria, MDCN examination recently, at the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital, UITH have reportedly failed the exam following the release of the result.

The doctors who had been verified by US/MDCN questioned why only 243 allegedly passed out of the overall 689.

According to some Doctors who exclusively spoke to Vanguard, they alleged that a top source in UITH initially hinted that about 500 doctors passed the assessment examination, only for the MDCN through its Registrar, Dr Tajudeen Sanusi to releases a statement that only 243 actually passed.

One of the students, describing the result as a ploy to undermine foreign trained doctors, said that the irregularities that characterised the entire process of the examination were questionable.

Some of the irregularities listed included: lack of coherent preparation for the students ; no cohesive curriculum and baseless marking scheme; high cost of verification and registration fees; including an alleged last minute change of questions by the MDCN and the stress they went through in the course of three months preparations for the exam among others.

The foreign medical students had earlier complained of victimization by Dr Tajudeen Sanusi, Registrar of MDCN ahead of the assessment examination.

A doctor who gave his name as Dr Nuhu, said Dr Sanusi saw foreign trained doctors as incompetent, adding that when he paid them a visit, his response to their complaints about a proper structure for the programme, was that most of the doctors were unqualified for the MDCN assessment examination.

Dr Nuhu quoted Dr Sanusi as saying,
“We train you in clinical medicine and dentistry to use your medulla not diagnostic medicine that is automated, which you were taught. I am sure based on your SSCE most of you are not qualified to be seated here.”
