Nuhu SaniNuhu Sani: Nigeria! Funny things we hear everday. Who dares compare a foreign trained doctor and d Nigerian Quaks? Wht facilties do we hav to train doctors in Nigeria? Even cadavas dt are found in their hundred on d streets in Nigeria are nt enof for the one-thousand classroom size Nigerian medical schools. I guess they should resolve the crises in d health sector in Nigeria before dey start charging d qualified and already trained Foreign doctors. The health system had been bad because of the administrative activities of Nigerian doctors in the hospitals and federal ministry oh health. Imagine that, in Nigeria, a doctor MUST be minister of health, the medical director and chief medical director and even head other departments within d same hospital where dey are NOT qualified to head lik the labs and a nursing services. I see a Nigerian doctor as one who needs the examination everyday because dey even need to knw dey are there to save lives and cut down on their extravagant demands from government and unimportant strikes that had led to many deaths. Those set of people are the destroyers of the Nigerian health system, if u think I'm lying, go find out the state of things in a Nigerian hospitals and see the state of disharmony among health professional instituted by doctors and all against the innocent and sick patient.

Osamuyi OkpameOsamuyi Okpame: Although the caption was provocative, but the explanations are fair enough...maybe it's time they return the favour because that's just the same conditions people are subjected to if they want to practice abroad too. you must take their exams again.

Benedict O SundayBenedict O Sunday: Good 1, so long as it is made wt gud intension.

Azi CorneliusAzi Cornelius: The better reason is that medicin is regional! We practice tropical medicine. The pathogenicity of diseases here is nt d same in America, hence, the need for the qualifying exam! Even d textbooks we use here are particularly written and tagged 'tropical'. It should neva be viewed as political! Also while America Univs are always in a hurry to bundle out African medical students 4rm their Univs within 4yrs, we spend 8years here with d daily postings! We hav d brain, the only thing we lack is equipments!

Uchechukwu MkpumaUchechukwu Mkpuma: Azi daalu! U just said the truth. Aluta continua....victora asata. D great EMSITE!

Imma JiImma Ji: Honestly, I wud prefer 2b treated by them. Check out education sector n u'll not agree less!

Unyime NdohUnyime Ndoh: omenmoji, who said foreign trainned docs don't want to practice in nigeria? These ones inducted r they not foreign? My broda this is a very good step by mdcn. We don't need docs that can treat cystic fibrosis but lack knowledge of treatment of malaria and meningitis. Sorry, pass our exams before u treat us simple! Kudos to mdcn.

Edidiong InyangEdidiong Inyang: you are talking shit.what is malaria that you guys always talk about?is as if signs and symptoms of malaria is only taught in Nigeria..Even people without medical knowledge know when somebody has malaria.

Edidiong InyangEdidiong Inyang: i am really sick and tired of hearing this shit...passing that exams is nothing..

Edidiong InyangEdidiong Inyang: if you read it is very well they need to know that a foreign trained doctor could have work in that country but choose to work in Nigeria. About this " if someone is trained in somalia or mozambic or even yemen, is d person not a foreign trained? Bcos oyibo is xpose to modern facilities he is authomatically qualified to practice in nigeria." foreign graduate have been taking that exams since the yrs of Noah..it is not today that they introduced that

Edidiong InyangEdidiong Inyang: What they are saying as i understood it is that they don't believe that having a knowledge to pass their exams is not enough to practice there.they are looking down at their exams. bcos if their exams is up to standard then anybody that passes it can practice without problems.enough of ur malaria thing. meningitis is everywhere.if a doctor is good he/she should be able to treat all diseases and not tropical or foreign diseases.

Onuwaje TajhOnuwaje Tajh: its a welcomed development ,my indian friends who were trained in other countries on return to india are maid to go through another very tough process of re examination,before they are allowee to practice in their country ,the medical practice is not for jokers,here in the ukraine i see Nigerians studying medicine who are unserious and would want to practice pls its welcomed it will help reduce quacks in the field.

Sunday EkojaSunday Ekoja: This is commendable. It will go along way in checking torontoism.

Ondotimi Tunyei MiebiOndotimi Tunyei Miebi: This is rubbish jor.....the foreign trained doctors are far better than most of our quacks here who normally forget scissors and other equipments inside patients stomach after operating on them. Majority of sick and accident victims that have died wouldn't have died if they are in foreign countries. In our institutions we all know that students bribe lecturers t☺ pass their courses, can Ɣ☺U̶̲̥̅̊ try than in foreign countries? I abroad before they give Ɣ☺U̶̲̥̅̊ license Ɣ☺U̶̲̥̅̊ must have truly passed Ųя courses.....but here, if Y☺u have money or Ųя father is a senator, commissioner, etc.....its just a phone call.....let's not deceive our selves here, majority of the foreign doctors are far better than our quacks. I'm sure the will pass the exams Y☺u will set f☺r them with flying colours!

Obinna IhemeduObinna Ihemedu: This is a welcome development. De system in some of these countries are not de same as ours, and they come back and are integrated into our system just lyk dat. When we leave de country, we write evaluating and qualifying exams before we can practice.

Tony AJTony AJ: As long as na just exam.. No wahala now. No be write pass be d thing.

Akinsola OgunbowaleAkinsola Ogunbowale: Pathetic situation in that country. If a senior doctor can't manage DVT in Nigeria. A friend of mine develop DVT and for her management she has to contact another doctor's friend in UK. It shows good training and knowledge in our beloved Nigeria?

Unyime NdohUnyime Ndoh: if someone is trained in somalia or mozambic or even yemen, is d person not a foreign trained? Bcos oyibo is xpose to modern facilities he is authomatically qualified to practice in nigeria. Hw many malarial cases do they see in their countries? Hw many choleral, marrasmic, meningitic cases do they see in their country? Nigeria is a soverign country we don't accept everything we see. Nigerian train docs r not quacks.

Tochukwu Delzy OkaforTochukwu Delzy Okafor: Are u a fool?see what ure saying,that foreign education is not better than home-based education in nigeria,its far better,my friend,I'm studying medicine in russia,and when I'm through,I'll be bk to naija to write whatever test,and start work,better than using ur brain than computer,we are in the computer,we are in the computer/jet age,so upgrade urself@Lydia

Amirah SanniAmirah Sanni: The article simply says you need to have had your internship before practicing in Nigeria. That itself may not be a problem but the reason given. Someone who studied in Eirope might need to become familiar wv tropical medicine for example and best period to get that would have been as a house officer consideribg also that there is a conversion course students from other countries take before being allowed into the Nigerian medical coincil

Olaniyan OlabodeOlaniyan Olabode: dis guys r saying wot is normally done bcos on a gud day any foreign doctor in any country has to write series of exams bfore dey can b recommended to practice over there but dis MDCN thing we dnt know wat dey hav underneath there sayings and what dey are even asking for is very hard to get except you have done internship in the country where u are coming from of which u do internship in the country where u want to pratice.

Suleiman MohdSuleiman Mohd: Then what is the essence of the MDCN exam? Just another way to frustrate guys. The exam should have solved that not a paper that we all knew can be cooked, why fo God sake. By getting the foreign degree is quite clear you are registered or eeligible to practice there, is not different from your colliques who are citezens of that country and are employed to work there.
