While we have taken the diligence to compile a list of the best universities in Nigeria to study medicine and surgery, we would like you to know that you can study medicine and surgery in other accredited medical schools in any university within the country and come out as the best medical doctor if you work hard at it.
The school you attend may affect your performance but its effect is actually negligible if you can bend down and study. We are saying this because lots of medical aspirants will neglect other prestigious universities in the country and apply to these competitive universities because of their reputation and at the end may not gain admission because there are lots of other applicants from the University’s catchment area.
With that said I present to you a list of the top 10 best universities to study medicine and surgery in Nigeria.

University Of Ibadan (UI)
The UCH in the University of Ibadan is reputed as the best medical school where one can really get the ins and out of medicine.

University Of Ilorin
Which school has vowed not to go on strike in Nigeria? Ans. None. There’s no university in Nigeria that has not been on strike before but in unilorin strike is very minimal almost absent. Making it a very good place for studying medicine and surgery without any distraction.
Ahmado Bello University, Zaria (ABU)
There’s no school to compete with ABU in the north at least not when the competition boils down to medicine and surgery. ABU has the one of the most well-equipped teaching hospital in the country making it the number one destination for medical aspirants hoping to school in the north.
University Of Lagos (Unilag)
The University of Lagos probably is the best universities in Nigeria. It was established in 1962 with the goal of training professionals for the newly independent Nigeria. The university was recently one of seven institutions to receive a share of a $1.2 million research grant awarded by the Lagos State government. A great part of it goes to the funding and improvement of the medical school.
University of Benin (UNIBEN)
Well, our list of the best universities in Nigeria to study medicine wouldn’t be complete without this great institution where most of the country’s recognized doctors graduated from. The University of Benin school of medicine was established in 1973.
University of Jos (UJTH)
Sometimes the best don’t hype! They lay low and they when they make a move you’d become surprised. The University of Jos is such. A serene medical giant moving mountains in the background. The University of Jos was established in 1975.
. Lagos State University (LASU)
A state university? No that’s not possible! Well, it is. Ever since the inception of the Lagos State teaching hospital and the medical school complex in 1961, it has not taken a breather as it continues to improve year after year and till today it still making waves in the Nigerian medical society.
University of Maiduguri (Unimaid)
Maybe it’s the issue of violence in the north but for whatever reason, I don’t think this school has been given the proper recognition it deserves. Unimaid with its vast medical library and teaching hospital is well equipped to help any medical students to become the best medical doctor he can be.
The University Of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN)
