ALL is set to receive distinguished scholars in the medical world and other stakeholders for the induction of the first set of medical students of the Bowen University, Iwo, Osun State, scheduled for tomorrow (Friday November 11, 2016).
Professor Adesola Ogunniyi, an erudite scholar, will deliver the induction lecture to grace the occasion, the vice chancellor of the institution, Professor Matthews Ojo, has said.
Speaking at a programme organised in preparation for the event recently, Professor Ojo said Bowen University would graduate its first set of 24 medical doctors tomorrow.
The induction ceremony of the Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) became a reality following the accreditation of teaching and research facilities in Bowen University’s College of Health Sciences, and the university’s Teaching Hospital by the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria and other allied bodies.
While commending the National Universities Commission (NUC) and the Federal Government for the approval of more private universities in Nigeria to ease some of the challenges facing admission process in the country, Professor Ojo disclosed that Bowen has embarked on a 10-year Strategic Plan that would transform the university into a world-class institution in teaching and research, as well as in physical development.
