There are currently prospective Nigerian and international institutions that are willing to hold affiliations with Eko University of Medicine and Health Sciences (EkoUNIMED). As a unique tertiary institution, we plan to establish several link agreements with universities in Africa, America, Europe, Middle East, Asia and for students, faculty and staff exchanges as well as collaborative research.
Our main objective is to provide competitive and resourceful graduates in Medical and Health Sciences with high ethical standards. We provide high level of teaching and learning opportunity to all people irrespective of race, tribe, religion or political inclinations, which is being achieved through effective programmes and services based on provision of adequate facilities as well as professionally qualified and competent staff.
The University is established to be an Information and Communication Technology (ICT) compliant institution right from its inception. The internet facilities are available all round the day in every nook and cranny of the university to encourage high academic research by staff and students alike.
With the rapid progression of globalization, the way nations position themselves is changing, and with this as a backdrop it is plain to see that Nigerian’s universities are also changing. Ways of thinking are changing as things are seen through an international light, and it is now seen as a matter of urgency to produce graduates who can be active on the world stage. Here at Eko University of Medicine and Health Sciences (EkoUNIMED), we are aiming to be one of the top universities in this global society, and we are making great strides in innovating education and research at the University. In addition to that, with the founding spirits of “excellence and compassion”, Eko University of Medicine and Health Sciences (EkoUNIMED) is considering the importance of the university social responsibility, especially contributions to the international community.
The philosophy of the university, as a highly specialized professional institution is to fill the wide gap in the number and quality of Medical and associated healthcare professions of Medicine, Pharmacy and Dentistry. In doing so, it is going to innovate with a Unicameral governance structure, research – based and service – oriented harmonized resident health management consultancies for in-house and external staff, and the instalment of e-medicine as a primary network with the five Divisional Hospitals in the State; and at a secondary level with established Nigerian University Teaching Hospitals and Federal Medical Centers, among others.
