Bayelsa Medical University (BMU) Fosters Practical Learning through Clinical Postings for Community Health Science Students

Bayelsa Medical University (BMU) continues to demonstrate its commitment to providing hands-on and comprehensive education for its students. In line with this commitment, the 200 Level B.Sc. Community Health Science students recently embarked on a two-part clinical posting journey that allowed them to immerse themselves in practical learning and patient care.

The first phase of the posting took place at the Primary Health Center Akaba from July 24, 2023, to August 4th, 2023. During this period, the students engaged in a range of activities, including suturing, incisions and drainage, infusion setups, as well as conducting home rounds and visits to patients.

Continuing their dedication to learning, the students then moved to the prestigious Federal Medical Center Yenagoa (FMC) for the second phase of their clinical posting. This phase spanned from August 7th, 2023, to August 19th, 2023. Here, they were exposed to a diverse range of medical cases and scenarios, further enhancing their clinical skills and patient interaction abilities.

Under the expert guidance of the Dean of the Faculty, Dr. Doris Dotimi, and the programme coordinators, Mr. Macaulay Tinimoye and Mr. Godbless Richman, the students navigated their clinical experiences with diligence and professionalism. Additionally, they were fortunate to be mentored by the experienced preceptor, Mrs. Jerry Berezi, and Dr. Mrs. Dolfina Ikemike, both of whom played a crucial role in shaping the students' practical knowledge and understanding.

Throughout their clinical postings, the students demonstrated exceptional commitment and enthusiasm, praising their supervisors and mentors for their proactive approach to learning. They not only honed their procedural skills but also developed a deeper understanding of patient care, teamwork, and the challenges of providing healthcare in diverse environments.

The Department of Community Health Science applauds these students for their remarkable achievements during their first clinical postings. Their dedication to advancing their skills and their commitment to compassionate patient care exemplify the values upheld by our institution.
