Bingham University Inducts 80 Medical Doctors

Bingham University, located in Karu in Nasarawa State, has recently inducted 80 Doctors into the medical profession, bringing the total number of medical doctors produced by the institution to 629 since its inception. 

During the induction ceremony held in Jos, the Plateau State Capital, the Vice Chancellor of the Institution, Prof. Haruna Kuje Ayuba, praised the graduates for their perseverance and skill in completing the rigorous six-year clinical program. 

He urged the new medical doctors to dedicate themselves to the country’s development and the welfare of humanity in their professional pursuits.

 Prof. Ayuba emphasized the importance of Bingham University in training medical doctors, stating, “Bingham University is one of the league of Universities in Nigeria that is uniquely positioned in the training of Medical Doctors. I understand the ratio of medical doctors to our country population is 1:5000 whereas the World Health Organization recommended a ratio of 1 Doctor to 600 of the population.

” In addition to this worrisome ratio, an estimated 16,000 doctors have left Nigeria over the last 5 years alone, through the Japa syndrome. We therefore give God the glory that Bingham University is helping to fill the manpower gap in the medical and dental profession.”

 He also encouraged the inductees to stay in Nigeria and contribute to improving the healthcare system..hope our inductees will also not leave the shores of Nigeria but stay back to salvage the deteriorating healthcare system.” 

The Vice Chancellor highlighted the significance of the induction ceremony, adding, “Today marks a great milestone in the history of Bingham University, as we induct the 2016/2017 set of the University trained Medical Doctors and Dentists. I heartily congratulate our 80 MBBS graduates that have worked tirelessly in order to be counted amongst those worthy to partake in this event of today.” 

Out of the 80 graduates, there are 46 females and 34 males, leading to an increase in female doctors. I am more excited that we are churning out more females Doctors than male Doctors. This means we are strategically raising an educated generations as these ones will ensure their children also do better.” 

The inductees were charged to uphold integrity, professionalism, and ethical standards in their medical practice. They were reminded of the core values of the Christian Faith that were instilled in them during their studies at Bingham University. 

President of the Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA), Rev Dr Job Ayuba Bagat, also expressed confidence in the inductees and encouraged them to continue seeking knowledge and growth in their profession. 

“As you embark on this noble path, let us reflect on the profound responsibility and the sacred trust that has been placed in your hands , the journey you have chosen is not merely a profession but a calling, it is a calling to heal, comfort and serve humanity with love and dignity, the sacrifices made by your parents and loved ones should not be forgotten but respectfully be appreciated. ” He stated.
