Last year, the school management had received a surgeon and consultant Prof. K.D.T Yawe who had visited the school to inspect available facilities as well as readiness of the institution to start new programmes such as Medicine where he expressed satisfaction with the facilities on ground.

The former governor of the state, Senator Tanko Almakura had also donated the Dalhatu Araf Specialist Hospital in Lafia to the University to be used as a Teaching Hospital for the School of Medicine.
