KASU Pursues Partnership With Army Hospital On Research, Tra

The Kaduna State University (KASU) has aspired to collaborate with 44 Nigerian Army Reference Hospital, Kaduna on training and research.

The acting Vice-Chancellor of KASU, Prof. Abdullahi Ashafa, disclosed this during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kaduna on Thursday.

Ashafa said the partnership became necessary due to the availability of important facilities available in the prosthetics and physiotherapy units of the hospital which the university could train its students with. 

He added that the collaboration would help the institution’s four new programmes; B.Sc. Nursing, B.Sc. Medical Laboratory Science, B.Sc. Radiography, and Doctor of Physiotherapy.

“Considering that the 44 Nigerian Army Reference Hospital has the equipment in abundance, it is only wise that the university collaborates with it for our students and lecturers to have access to them.

“We have been collaborating with institutions across the world in Europe, Asia and America for research and training.

“The 44 Nigerian Army Reference Hospital is our neighbour, so it is only wise that we approach the management for collaboration purely in the use of the facilities for teaching, training and research for our students.

“The collaboration will also cover the university’s teaching hospital, Barau Dikko Teaching Hospital, which will also be using the facilities for research and training,” he said.

The acting VC noted that a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was submitted by members of the university on a courtesy visit to the Army hospital management.
