433 medical Doctors Are Unable to Pass the MDCN Qualification Test

Of the 836 foreign doctors who sat for the qualifying examination organized by the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN), about 433 failed.

The qualifying examination was held at the Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital on November 22-23.

The examination consisted of a computerized examination, a photographic examination, and an objective structured clinical examination, and was conducted at four centers: the BMG Institute of Information Technology, the JAMB Professional Test Centre, Kano Cooperative CBT Centre, and Treztech.

The results showed that most of the medical and dental school graduates performed poorly on the CBT.

A total of 836 candidates with medical degrees from foreign universities were shortlisted for the first round of the examination in the candidate list conducted in Abuja.

The examination resulted in 403 successful candidates

The MDCN is an agency that regulates the practice of medicine, dentistry, and alternative medicine in the country in order to protect the country’s health care system.

The MDCN conducts examinations twice a year. The examination tests the candidate’s ability to apply basic medical and clinical skills in a medical setting.
