Process of Curricula development/revision:
The cardinal objective of STAMINA is to create an enabling environment for junior faculty to engage in research activities; hence in 2016 the project initiated the development of new curricula for M.Sc programmes in Field Epidemiology, Clinical Epidemiology and Public Health in Department of Community Health. Similarly, the curriculum for Masters of Science Medical Microbiology and Reproductive Science in the departments of Microbiology and Obstetrics & Gynaecology respectively were revised.
The Revision and development of the curricula was achieved through the study of several curricula of universities in USA, United Kingdom and Australia by faculty members of University of Jos comprising; Deans of Postgraduate and Medicine, Relevant departmental postgraduate representatives, Heads of relevant departments, Senior faculty from the departments involved and the STAMINA Key personnel. They all worked tirelessly to ensure the programmes are up and running.
