No course is easy to study as each course has its challenges.
Basically, a Medical student studies a medical course in the university .
Some of the common medical courses in the Nigeria universities includes Medicine and surgery, Dentistry , medical Laboratory science,physio therapy, Nursing , Anatomy, physiology etc.
Challenges medical student face
1) High cost of medical Textbooks
Medical textbooks are quite expensive , especially the advanced ones.
Majority of these text books are imported ( as they are not written by Nigerians) and I think this contributes to the high cost ( exchange rates not only are these text books are expensive , but they are also voluminous and take time to read.
2) High cost of studying :- Medical courses are more expensive to study when compared to some other courses in the Nigerian universities. cost of Laboratory practical fees, researches and so on.
Contributes to the high cost of studying medical courses.
Laboratory practicals are important parts of medical courses because they enable students to understand complicated concepts better.
3) Long Duration of study :- most people will agree with me that medical courses have one of the longest duration of necessary to make students master the courses well inorder to avoid costly mistakes ( that can claim human lives).To study medical courses, one must be ready to dedicate his /her time.
Also ,at the end of normal duration of study, medical students under go one year of internship before going for National youth service Corp (NYSC).
