College cries over Non-accreditation of significant courses
Provost of the College of Health Technology, Pankshin, Plateau, Dr. Jonathan Daboer has lamented over the non-accreditation of some key courses while welcoming a four-man team from the Radiology Registration Board of Nigeria (RRBN) who paid a visit to the college to assess facilities at its Radiology School in Plateau State on Monday 5th of December 2016.
“The school was established in 1976, but we are still at a temporary site with key courses yet to be acredited; we are doing everything possible to get such courses accredited so as to contribute our quota to the healthcare delivery chain,” He said.
Daboer, after conducting the visitors round the School of Radiology, thanked them for the visit which he described as “very historic and encouraging’’.
“It is gratifying that you are here; your presence and support will empower us to assume our full status as a health college,” he added.
He regretted that the 40-year stay at a temporary location had affected the college’s desire for growth and expansion, and called for more funds to enable the school meet its urgent needs.
Daboer also extended his appreciation to the Plateau government for the release of funds that ensured the upgrading of facilities at the Radiology School which made the ongoing accreditation exercise possible.
