Abstract

Medical education in Nigeria is yearning for innovations and evidence-based changes. Physiology remains core part of basic sciences and currently there are no clear exit expectations for Nigerian Medical schools. Further to the success of a national set of Physiology learning objectives in America driven by American Physiological Society (APS), this paper reviews the need for similar intervention in Nigeria driven bythe Physiological Society of Nigeria (PSN). The paper sets out steps that involve elaborate stakeholders engagement that can be utilized to design a national set of learning objectives towards improving learning outcomes and can also serve as benchmark for curricula reviews.

Key words: Learning objectives, Nigeria, Medical education, curriculum
