When considering admission to a university for the study of Medicine & Surgery in Nigeria, it is advisable to prioritize federal universities due to their typically well-equipped facilities and tuition availability.

Therefore, it is essential to determine which federal universities in Nigeria are accredited to offer Medicine & Surgery. This becomes a crucial question when applying for JAMB UTME or DE, or if you are contemplating changing your course and/or institution.

The most reliable sources for this information are the official JAMB brochure and the individual admission portals of the universities. After thorough research through these channels, I have compiled a list of federal universities where you can study Medicine & Surgery in Nigeria:
