The Medical Laboratory Science Council of Nigeria has commended the Department of Medical Laboratory Sciences of the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences, Edo State University, Uzairue for the academic excellence displayed by the students of the Department at the last two consecutive sessions of the MLSCN conducted first and final professional examinations.

The Commendation was conveyed to the Department in a letter dated 2ND June 2023, signed by the Registrar/CEO, Dr. Tosin Erhabor. The Council noted that “making 100% success in four (4) consecutive professional examinations (in 2021 and 2022) is a rare occurrence” and therefore, it is a feat achieved that is worthy of commendation.’’ The Council’s management has extended the commendation to the department’s team and the University Management and has admonished that such quality of training is sustained in line with the guidelines as approved by the council from time to time.

Recall that a few weeks ago, the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria had also commended the University’s Nursing Programme for excellent performance in her examinations. The Nursing Department had achieved a 100% pass in her last professional examination, having previously obtained a minimum of 93.7% performance in all her previous Council examinations to date.

This is another feather to the soaring commendation the University has received within a short space of time.  Just last week the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria, inducted the pioneer medical doctors who had completed their studies just within the stipulated time of (6) six years in a ceremony well attended by people from all walks of life with several encomiums on the Medical College.

The University authority while appreciating the Medical Laboratory Science Council of Nigeria for the commendation, attributed the institution’s achievements to the unwavering support of His Excellency, Mr. Godwin Nogheghase Obaseki, the Executive Governor, Edo State, the Honourable Commissioner for Education, Dr.  Joan Osa Oviawe and the Governing Council of the University under the able leadership of the Pro-Chancellor, Prof. Emeritus T.O.K Audu. The University Management has pledged to continue to provide quality training and deliver her mandate within the stipulated time for all programmes.
