Learn, serve, and care; these three verbs epitomize the mantra of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology of the first specialized medical university in Nigeria - University of Medical Sciences (UNIMED), Ondo State - under my leadership. I urge you to avail yourselves of the unique opportunities to acquire knowledge in feta-maternal medicine, family and reproductive health, oncology, and urogynaecology as well as fertility and assisted reproduction. Our experienced and vibrant academic and non-academic members of staff are poised to ensure the right atmosphere is provided to achieve this through student-cantered learning approaches.


With the knowledge acquired, we expect you to deliver high quality and compassionate services to every patient that you are suitable to serve to improve the health statistics in your immediate communities as well as our beloved country. To this end, your education at UNIMED will encompass not only international standard curricula but locally appropriate interventions as well.


Finally, we hope to impart in you the principle of providing services in a caring, compassionate, and empathetic manner; never forgetting that adding value to the lives of your patients should be your top priority.


I welcome you all once again as we strive to better a lot of our communities.

      Scope and Reach

The University of Medical Sciences (abbreviated UNIMED) is sited in Ondo City to address the immediate needs for training, research and service delivery in Ondo State and its environs in all aspects of health care. In addition, it is designed as a world-class institution that focuses on addressing the human resource and health care needs of all. The Department of O&G is the bed rock on which the modest success of the University and her affiliated Teaching Hospital is built. The successful activities of the Mother and Child Hospital, as a component of the Abiye (safe motherhood) programme, effectively reduced maternal and perinatal mortality. This contributed greatly to Ondo state attaining The Millennium Development Goals 4 and 5.


In 2015, the Department of O&G of the Mother and Child Hospital acquired post graduate accreditations by the National Post Graduate Medical College of Nigeria and West African College of Surgeons. These accreditations have been passed on to the University of Medical Sciences Teaching Hospital. The course content of the department reflects the major sub-specialties of the O&G discipline which are:

1.   Fetal and Maternal Medicine (FMM)

2.    Oncology and Uro-Gynaecology (OUG)

3.   Reproductive and Family Health (RFH)

4.   Fertility and Assisted Reproduction (FAR)
