Nigerian Medical Students To Study Traditional Medicine In Universities

In view of the lack of enforcement in alternative treatments, the Minister of Health, Prof. Onyebuchi Chukwu, Wednesday disclosed that his ministry was in the process of integrating traditional medicine practice into medical school curriculum.

Chukwu, however, hinged the veiled official recognition of herbal medicine on the need for practitioners to go to medical school to equip themselves with the requisite expert knowledge.

He promised a level playing field to all stakeholders in the health sector.

While assuring that he would continue to support the pharmaceutical society in his official capacity, he called on herbal medicine practitioners to always lay emphasis on diagnosis before prescribing drugs to their patients.
