The New Medical School at the University of Jos formulated its aims and objectives in 1997, that to date remain the goal for developing an institution which would best meet the needs and aspirations of the nations. It was recognized that there was a need to define objectives for the new school; objectives which would relate to the nations goals in terms of health care, taking into account the abilities of the nations youth, while creating an institution with undoubted distinction and uniqueness relevant to it’s geographical location. The group also believes that the school should have clearly defined goals towards which and that mechanism should be evolved which would enable periodic self-assessment to take place and allow for modifications of objectives or modes of implementation to be effected. Four years later, some progress has been made towards these goals and the first review of the objectives and their implementation has been made.
