Over 100 Nigerian medical and dental consultants left the services of 17 tertiary health institutions in the last 24 months, the Medical and Dental Consultants’ Association of Nigeria (MDCAN) has said.

The association made the disclosure Sunday in a communiqué issued after its National Executive Council meeting held at the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University TeaTeaching Hospital (ATBUTH), Bauchi.  The communiqué was signed by its president, Victor Makanjuola and Secretary General, Yemi Raji.  The association urged the government to put polices in place to address the mass exodus of highly skilled medical and dental consultants to developed countries. It said such policies must domesticate the ‘pull ‘factors while minimizing the push factors encouraging emigration of healthcare professionals.

“Members are encouraged to consider medical entrepreneurship as a viable and rewarding alternative for improved healthcare delivery in Nigeria,” the association said in the communiqué.”

MDCAN called for immediate review of the recently released circular on hazard allowance by the government.
