Obstetrics & Gynaecology

he department of O&G was one of the foundation departments of the University College Ibadan Medical School at its founding in 1948 and it moved to the University College Hospital at its completion in 1957. Since then, the Department has been active in its triple functions of training, service, and research. In the first 25 years of its existence, it served as a preparatory centre for trainee Obstetricians and Gynaecologists who were working towards certification by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologist.
In the last 3 decades however, the Department has been preparing trainees for certification by the National Postgraduate Medical College of Nigeria and the West African College of Surgeons.

In 2003, the Department in collaboration with the Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, U.S.A., commenced Masters Degree programmes in Human Reproduction Biology and Population and Reproductive Health.
Department is the pioneer site for reproductive health research in Nigeria as evidenced by the fact that  more than 2,000 peer – reviewed articles have been published in reputable scientific journals from research activities undertaken in the Department. In recognition of its excellence, the Department was designated a collaboration centre for Research on Human Reproduction (CCR) by the World Health Organization (WHO). 
The Family Planning Clinic of the Department has an impressive track record of training medical students, resident doctors and other Reproductive Health providers from different areas of Nigeria and other Sub-Saharan countries and has earned a reputation for its comprehensive approach to providing high quality instruction.
The Department is also one of the centres in the country where service programmes for the Aids Prevention Initiative in Nigeria (APIN Plus)/ US President Emergency Program For Aids Relief (PEPFAR) are being carried out to cater for the HIV positive patients and pregnant women.
