TETFund to support King’s College, London, in establishing medical school in Abuja

The Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund) has affirmed its commitment to assisting King’s College, London, in its collaboration with the African Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank) to establish a medical school in Abuja.

Sonny Echono, the Executive Secretary of TETFund, conveyed this assurance during a visit by a senior delegation from King’s College on Tuesday in Abuja.

Expressing enthusiasm for the medical school project, Echono emphasized that TETFund is eager to collaborate with various entities in research to address challenges facing the country.

Dr. Helen Bailey, the Deputy Vice President of King’s College, London, leading the delegation, highlighted the institution’s partnership with Afreximbank on the proposed medical school project in Abuja.

Bailey emphasized that the medical centre would address the issue of brain drain in the country. She expressed King’s College’s readiness to collaborate with TETFund and relevant government bodies to achieve the desired goal.

The collaboration aims to develop the African Medical Centre of Excellence (AMCE), including a medical school, nursing school, and research centre co-located with a hospital on the outskirts of Abuja.

King’s College, known for its extensive partnerships with European hospitals, is set to contribute to education, training, and research in this initiative.
