Nigerian Medical Association, NMA, has kicked against the planned resit examinations of four hundred and thirty seven foreign trained Medical and Dental graduates that failed the last Licensing Examination set by the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria, MDCN.
The NMA had earlier informed available information showed that the purported reseat examinations was fixed to today February 28.
Describing the move as “politically motivated and capable of casting a negative aspersion on the quality of MDCN to the medical world,”
NMA President, Professor Mike Ogirima, told reporters yesterday that only the MDCN had the right to organise such examinations.
According to him, the licensing Examinations for foreign trained Medical and Dental graduates are usually done twice a year by MDCN and if anyone fails the examination, such a person is required to go back and prepare for the next examination as there is nowhere in the world where you have a resit.
