University of Medical Sciences (NG) A Project of U | KBFUS Funds

The University of Medical Sciences (UNIMED) is training new doctors to meet the shortage of medical professionals in Nigeria, a country of 182 million people. About 1 doctor for every 600 persons is a healthy ratio; Nigeria has about one doctor for every 4,000 people. UNIMED is doing its part to produce medical professionals.

The mission of UNIMED is: "To provide exceptional quality and comprehensive health care and integrated education and research in all health-related sciences, to expand access to compassionate and high quality health care for under-served populations, and to lead the scientific pathway for reducing the burden of disease in our areas of operation."

The vision of the University is "to be a thriving medical and health sciences University, locally, nationally and internationally recognized for excellence and innovation in health education and research, and for its ability to translate research findings for the improvement of health in communities with high burden of disease."

Our principal objective is to establish a 21st Century World-Class University of excellence in medical research, teaching and service delivery.


One of the major achievements of the University is the approval given to it by the NUC to begin five Academic courses; Medicine, Dentistry, Biochemistry, Physiology, and Anatomy following the visit of a Resource Verification Team from the Commission to the University in December 2015 and subsequently the approval of several other Courses in 2017. The Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN) also paid an advisory visit to the University in December 2015, and was impressed with the plans being put in place to establish the Medical and Dental programs of the university. The University has since being pursuing the implementation of the specific recommendations made by the NUC and MDCN teams to strongly establish its Medical and Dental programs.
