History

The College of Medicine Enugu State University of Science and Technology was established initially at Nsukka as a campus of the Enugu State University of Science and Technology with Prof. Asogwa Simon as the pioneer provost. At the instance of the then Governor Chimaroke Nnamani who undertook extensive infrastructural and manpower development of the present site of the college, the college moved from the Nsukka campus to the present site in 2004.

Following the formal full accreditation of the College with Prof. Nene Obianyo as the provost and Prof. Chidobem Ikechukwu as the Vice Chancellor, four sets of medical graduates had been produced in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014. The College maintained a one faculty College until 2015 when the faculty of Basic Medical Sciences was carved out of the faculty during the tenure of Prof. Cyprain Onyeji as the Vice Chancellor. There exist presently the faculty of Clinical Medicine with Dr. Ojioke C.J.G. as the pioneer and former dean.

The faculty now has five (5) streams of medical students in the 3rd, 4th and 5th MBBS sets inherited from the faculty of Basic Medical Sciences. With thirteen (13) departments and dedicated staff, the faculty is poised to ensure the continued training of medical doctors who can stand the challenges in academic, research and innovative cutting edge technologies in the general and specialized health care delivery both within and without the shores of the country, Nigeria. She co-operates maximally with the University Teaching Hospital whom it shares the same premises with in the realization of this goal. Our alumnus can really testify to the quality of the training they received by the accolades they have won typified by the case of NAME OF PERSON who came out tops in Harvard University Examinations.

The faculty is however handicapped to a great extent by manpower and infrastructural lack inspite of the University authorities and the Visitor's efforts to adequately provide her needs.
