Meet 21year Idongesit Eseneyen, Nigeria’s youngest graduating medical doctor


A 21-YEAR-OLD has become the youngest graduating medical student at Nigeria’s University of Uyo.

Idongesit Eseneyen was admitted into the university at just 15 to study medicine and defied all odds to emerge as the best graduating medical student in her department.

“The award for Best Graduating Doctor in Pharmacology came as a surprise, I wasn’t really expecting it but I am happy,” she said.






“I got inspired to study medicine when I was very little due to my frequent visits to the hospital because my mum is a nurse, and also because of the desire I have to make a difference in people’s lives and I look forward to serving humanity”.
