EXCEL is the ministry arm of CMDA Nigeria with the primary goal of supporting members to achieve excellence in their medical and dental training. Through several academic teachings, clinical mentorship, peer learning, and targeted support

EXCEL Programme for Students

EXCEL Programme for Students includes initiatives that help student members (including foreign graduates) to excel in their academics. Through the programme, members are made to understand the value of attending lectures, postings, peer-learning and academic development trainings with utmost commitment, and to aspire to be among the best in academics, research, and practice.

The Good Teacher

The Good Teacher is a capability building training on teaching, modelled after the excellent teaching methods of Jesus and implemented through a partnership between CMDA Nigeria and Prime International. Through such trainings, CMDA Nigeria fills a gap in the Nigerian Health Space, which is that of the paucity of opportunities for providing medical educators with techniques to impart knowledge to their students using a values-based approach.

Whole Person Medicine Training

Whole Person Medicine Training is a masterfully designed capability building initiative that focuses the attention of the Christian medic on the history of medicine, the basis for whole person and patient-centred care, and how to go about providing such care within the context of practical, prevailing considerations. The training is implemented through a partnership between CMDA Nigeria and Prime International. 

Developing Health Course

Developing Health Course serves as a mechanism to constantly improve the capacity of health workers in mission hospitals and settings with more limited access to developments in the health space. The DHC is implemented in partnership with the Christian Medical Fellowship, United Kingdom.

Continuing Medical Education

Continuing Medical Education (CME) events are regularly organised by CMDA Nigeria as solitary and embedded events (in conferences and trainings). These events enable members to be constantly updated with developments in healthcare, health policy, education and research.
