The first session of the basic course of the Institute for Excellence in Healthcare and Leadership (IfEHL) for 2023. The training, held in the Wholeness House facility, from 21st to 28th April, had 25 young medical doctors, including a consultant.

The staff of the CMDA Nigeria Secretariat hosted the training, providing administrative, welfare, technical, and media support. Participants were taken through a set of modular sessions, engaged in recreational activities, shared sumptuous meals, participated in a worship session at the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital Chapel, and visited the adjoining community to carry out research activities. By the end of the training, testimonies were shared, loads of lessons learnt, new relationships forged, and all involved were grateful for the transforming encounter of the IfEHL experience.

The training has been described by the participants as an inspiring, unforgettable experience. With the help of our sponsors, partners, and dear facilitators, the training was a huge success for God’s glory. Having sent forth the participants (the Gideon Generation) to ‘Go and do Likewise’ (to represent Christ), we eagerly wait to see the impact that God will use them to make in the days ahead. It is our earnest desire that these fresh inductees will live up to all that is expected of them after such a memorable encounter.


The Secretariat also provided technical support for the month of April. The topic discussed was the recently proposed 5-year bill seeking to ensure that freshly inducted medical doctors practice in Nigeria for a minimum of 5 years before being granted full practicing licenses.
