Accredited Schools of Health Technology in Nigeria: Full List

Before the 70s, there were few schools of health technology in Nigeria. The story is now different as each state in the federation has at least one college of health technology. This was as a result of the conscious effort by the same federal government to bring this school close to the people.

However, that you see a school offering health technology in you state does not mean its accredited. In fact, you need to watch closer and do your background check on the college you want to apply so that you apply to the right institution to avoid stories that touch. You might be seen as a quack, denied membership into professional bodies or even denied admission to further your education simply because the institution wasn’t listed among the accredited school of health technology in the country.

The full list of accredited schools of health technology in Nigeria together with their locations is what this post is about. The information here was pulled directly from the website of Health Records Officers Regulation Board of Nigeria. You can always check their website www.hrorbn.org.ng for the updated list if you are in doubt.
