Who We Are

The University of Calabar Teaching Hospital came into existence in 1979 following the need for a Tertiary Health Institution that will render Clinical Services at a level that meets the requirements for the training of medical students of the College of Medical Sciences of the University of Calabar, resident Doctors for the different Post Graduates as well as other healthcare providers in different specialties of Medicine and it's Allied Professions.

The Hospital took over the facilities of the then St. Margaret's Hospital, Calabar, which was the first Public Hospital in Nigeria, established in 1897. The facilities of the Maternity Annex of St. Margaret's Hospital were also taken over by the Hospital.

News Update

Hurray!

The University of Calabar Teaching Hospital (UCTH), took another leap forward in her avowed determination to bring tertiary and quaternary healthcare services closer to our people with the introduction of Laparascopic Surgeries in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology. 
A successful Laparascopic surgery for an unruptured Ectopic Pregnancy, known in medical parlance as Laparoscopic salpingectomy, and a Laparascopic Hysterectomy have been successfully performed by an all-UCTH team as routine procedures in the hospital. These feats were made possible by the acquisition of relevant state of the art equipment and successful training of a young Gynaecologist in India by the current UCTH Management led by Prof Ikpeme A. Ikpeme. The domestication of these key-hole or minimal access techniques heralds a firm commitment to reduce medical tourism in our catchment area and nation for clients who will choose this option with its documented advantages of fewer complications compared to open surgeries. 
As a hospital, our commitment to raising the bar for service delivery to our people remains firm and deeply rooted. We are also committed to adding endoscopic general surgical and Arthroscopic Orthopaedic procedures to our armamentorium for the benefit of our people.
