“The Federal Government envisions Universal Health Coverage (UHC), and to make it accessible and affordable to all Nigerians irrespective of their social status. Today’s induction is significant in that 1,021 practitioners, the highest in any single induction ceremony, will be added to the group of medical personnel that are already working to actualize this vision.

“The MDCN is already discussing with selected teaching hospitals in each of the six geo-political zones in the country to create opportunities to further equip the skills and knowledge of returning Medical and Dental graduates from abroad before participating in the assessment examination.

“The Federal Ministry of Health and the Budget Office of the Federation have approved in this year’s budget, funds for the payment of house-officers by the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria effective from January 2021. MDCN is now charged with the posting, placement and payment of house officer’s emoluments.

Also, the Registrar of the MDCN, Dr Tajudeen Sanusi, while administering the Physicians Pledge to the inductees, urged them to practice their profession to the best of their ability, putting the health and well-being of their patients as a priority.
