Introduction to Medicine JUPEB

Medicine is that branch of science that deals with the total health and well-being. It involves the nurses, doctors, and other specialists in regards to health care sections.

It even goes as far as disease diagnosistreatment, and prevention, as well as medical research and a variety of other health care sectors.

Medicine is mostly concerned with promoting and maintaining good health and well-being.


The course of study comprises of different fields, which we will be discussing briefly. they include:


Surgical operations are required to diagnose and treat certain diseases, malformations, and injuries. Instead of the usual medication by the use of drugs, they make use instrumental and physical methods.

For example, a surgeon can perform surgery to remove or replace sick tissue or organs or extract tissue for biopsy. In addition, they may remove undesirable tissue and send it to be diagnosed.

Clinical Practice

In a hospital or other healthcare oriented setting, a clinician is a health practitioner who interacts directly with patients. Clinicians include nurses, doctors, psychotherapists, and other health specialists.


Clinical Research

Researchers investigate whether diseases are present, why they occur, what can be done to treat or prevent them, what causes them to occur more frequently, and many other facets of health.

Biomedical Research

The goal of this branch of study is to find solutions to prevent and treat diseases that cause illness or death.

Biomedical researchers examine biological processes and disorders using biotechnology tools. They want to create effective treatments and cures.


Counseling, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and other types of “talking cure” might be beneficial for persons suffering from mental health issues such as depression, stress, or chronic pain.


Branches of medicine include biochemistry, biophysics, anatomy, genetics, pathology, radiology, pharmacology, and a host of others.

Medicine and Surgery JUPEB WAEC Subject Combination

Candidates for Medicine and Surgery at any JUPEB-accredited university or institution must meet the following requirements:

  1. A minimum of 5 credit passes in Maths, English Language, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, or any other subject is required.
  2. Candidates’ bio data will be required for online registration.

The ideal JUPEB cut off mark for all JUPEB affiliated universities is 5 points; nevertheless, courses differ, hence cut off marks vary.

JAMB set a ceiling on cut-off marks for all schools, just like it did for UTME admission, so that no university, polytechnic, or college of education could fall below it.

The same is true for JUPEB direct entry admissions.


The overall cutoff threshold is 5, which means that you are automatically eligible to apply for admission; however, individuals with higher JUPEB scores have a better chance than those with lower scores.

All JUPEB affiliated schools accept 12 POINTS for Medicine and Surgery, with the exception of Obafemi Awolowo University, which accepts 13 POINTS for Medicine and Surgery from candidates having JUPEB results.
