(e)    DESIGN, RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT (R & D):

I have designed, researched extensively and developed to the level of “PROTOTYPE” the Concept of teaching of Clinical Occupational Medicine (i.e. in the out-patients, clinics and in the wards) for 4th, 5th  and 6th year (Final) medical students of Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Nnewi Campus, using facilities in Nnamdi Azikiwe University Teaching Hospital (NAUTH) Nnewi for seventeen academic years 1995-2012).

This concept has now been developed to the level of “prototype”. Medical students in other medical schools in Nigeria are taught Occupational Health only in the class room with some visits to industries especially medium and large scale. On the other hand, in this medical school (NAU/NAUTH, Nnewi) medical students are in additional also taught Clinical Occupational Medicine in the casualty, clinics, and wards in their fourth, fifth and sixth years. A work history form developed in the teaching hospital (NAUTH Nnewi) ensures the taking of detailed occupational history of patients, thereby making diagnosis of occupational diseases possible. The concept has been presented to the learned society in an international conference – Jubilee Anniversary of the Medical Research Council in collaboration with West African College of Physician’s Annual General and Scientific Meeting in The Gambia in November 1997. The Scientific paper on the concept has been published in a reputable scientific journal. The validation of the concept was presented in the 26th Annual General and Scientific Meeting of West African College of Physicians Gambia 2002. All the Medical Doctors who graduated from this medical school (1995 till date) about 1900 benefited from this concept.
