The Faculty of Medicine is one of the founding faculties of UoC.

In line with the University motto of “Nurturing the Passion to Care”, the teaching and learning activities embrace and integrate the three domains of learning; cognitive, affective and psychomotor. The integration of these essential domains in the curriculum – along with Godliness – in the life of students helps shape a balanced education system in producing healthcare professionals who are intellectually, emotionally and spiritually balanced. This is achieved through the revolutionised teaching and learning activities of student-centred outcome-based education. Technology is incorporated to enhance participative learning environments that actively engage the current Y and Z generation in the acquisition of new knowledge.
The faculty also offers postgraduate programmes to encourage lifelong learning opportunities. Both Masters in Medical Sciences (MMedSc) (By Research) and PhD in Medical Sciences (PhDMedSc) (By Research) programmes are offered in collaboration with the Centre for Graduate Studies.
