DEANS WELCOME
Welcome the the Faculty of Basic Clinical Sciences.
BRIEF HISTORY
The Faculty of Basic Clinical Sciences is one of three faculties under the College of Health Sciences.

The foundation Dean of the Faculty was Prof E J C Nwana, whose tenure ran from the inception of the Faculty to 2014. He was succeeded by Prof A AGadzama, who oversaw the affairs of the Faculty between 2014 – 2018. The latter handed over to the incumbent Dean.

The Faculty is located at Gwagwalada, within the precincts of the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital.
