Career Opportunities: 

Good health and total well-being is central to the development of any nation. As a developing nation, we cannot relegate the health of our nation to the background.

The University of Cape Coast therefore felt the need to diversify its academic programmes to meet the health demands of the 21st  Century by training medical doctors through the Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MB ChB) programme and other allied health personnel to help address the poor patient-doctor ratio in the country in order to make healthcare more accessible and readily available to Ghanaians.

The Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MB ChB) program is a student-centred problem-based integrated curriculum that is strongly community oriented.

The programme is supported by a strong science faculty well equipped with anatomy, histology, biochemistry, physiology and clinical skills laboratories.
