Who We Are

About Us

OCNS was established in 2021 under the proprietorship of doctorally prepared western-trained clinician and faculty, Dr. Michael Ajayi and his wife as co-founder. Together, they registered the college with the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) and subsequently enlisted the voluntary support of the pioneering board members who assisted to navigate the political, geographical, and multicultural terrain in starting the college. In 2021, the Kogi State House of Assembly passed the bill for the establishment of the school into law, and was subsequently signed by the Kogi state governor. The college will run as a private international tertiary institution, under the management of the governing board with the proprietor as the chairman and the Provost as the chief academic officer.

Following the successful accreditation exercise by the NMCN in October 2021, the school was awarded full accreditation status, with an annual student intake of seventy-five (75). The College is staffed in line with the regulations of NMCN and NBTE; has adequate hostel accommodation for male and female students, a transport facility, and a modern security facility. The college has a standard basic science laboratory, a well-equipped library, an e-library unit, a well-equipped ICT lab, and indoor and outdoor recreational facilities. The college also has a 250-bed capacity hospital with an outpatient clinic and accident and emergency unit.
