The Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) on Friday matriculated 275 students from three schools of the university, for the 2023/2024 academic session.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that 140 students are from the College of Nursing Services, 65 Ordinary National Diploma (OND) and 22 Higher National Diploma (HND) from the  School of Health Information Management while 10 (HND) and 35 (OND) students from School of Biomedical Engineering.

It also reports that the schools that carried out their matriculation include the School of Health Information Management, College of Nursing Sciences and Federal School of Biomedical Engineering.

Prof. Wasui Adeyemo, Chief Medical Director (CMD) of LUTH, was represented by the university’s Chairman, Medical Advisory Committee (CMAC), Dr Ayodeji Oluwole.

Adeyemo said that the Federal Government gave the institution mandate to train more health personnel, because of the dearth of medical personnel arising from “Japa” syndrome.

He said that the government had also increased the institution’s allocation which made them to have more students.

He was hopeful that the government would invest in infrastructure facilities and employment of more teachers.

The CMD said that the hospital was growing larger and bigger, and there would be more room for the students especially for practical sessions.

According to him, the world is a global village which makes room for many opportunities for the students if they are more focused.

Ms Omolola Fakeye, Acting Head of Administration, reiterated the CMD’s views.

Fakeye said that the federal government was doing a lot to improve the lives of the students.

“There’s a whole lot of things in place to refine the students.”

She appealed to the students to always represent and present the school in good light.

She tasked the students to always dress well and have it at the back of their minds that they were students of the Lagos University Teaching Hospital schools.

Also speaking, Dr Olubukola Olawuyi, Head, College of Nursing Science, said that the students came blank and plain and that the institution was ready to train them and impact necessary knowledge and skills.

Olawuyi commended the government for their efforts.

She, however, appealed for more infrastructure and lecturers for optimal impact on the students.(NAN)(www.nannews.ng)
