The solid foundation laid by Prof Theophilus Oladapo Ogunlesi and other founding fathers of the National Postgraduate Medical College of Nigeria (NPMCN) has consistently achieved its mandate of producing specialist medical practitioners in Nigeria. The ever-changing world requires that we have in Nigeria a critical mass of subspecialists to tackle the various old and emerging ailments that afflict the citizenry. Subspecialist training is popular among Nigerian specialists. While those who are not yet subspecialists crave for the training. Nigerian-born sub-specialists in the diaspora are willing to assist in the training. It is now left to policy makers and captains of the training institutions to seize the chance and move us forward with a view to improving the current embarrassingly low number of subspecialists in Nigeria. The NPMCN is hereby beckoned to take the lead. In doing so, it should combine excellence with relevance.
