Ghana is to get its first university on the study of dermatology after embarking on feasibility studies for the setting up of the institution.
The Rabito Clinic in Ghana, which is spearheading the initiative is getting support from the Regional Dermatology Training Centre in Tanzania.
The Ghana News Agency reported that the dermatology university would focus on both graduate and undergraduate programmes with the aim to attract fresh desire for specialization in the field in Africa.
Professor Edmund Nminyem Delle who is the President of Rabito Clinics, told the Ghana News Agency in Accra that five regional centres of the Rabito Clinics in parts of Ghana would be converted as satellite campuses for the University.
The institution hopes to churn out more practitioners in the sector, to promote and provide healthy skin for Ghanaians and ensure quality treatment of all skin disorders.
Tanzania is to support Ghana with lecturers, practical attachment platform and any other educational system for the progress of students and the University.
Dermatology is the branch of medicine concerned with the physiology and pathology of the skin.
