“In the field of teaching and research, we have reached advanced stage of establishing a K-smart Test Edge® Computer Test Platform, which deploys a 3D imaging that integrates intuitive coloured graphics and animations for medical pictures and procedures for teaching and evaluation of medical students. We have also established
a functional research management office and have submitted several National Institute of Health (NIH) grant requests. In no distant time, we shall begin to reap the fruits of our labour.

Another area of focus is in entrepreneurship and in that regard, we have established the College of Medicine Ventures Limited saddled with the responsibility of engaging in business concerns to improve the revenue of the college. The enterprise is still at the teething stage, but we are hopeful of a bountiful harvest,” he said
