But then again, they can still be rewarded by others, so all additional monies added to this initial stipends aren’t from the federal government (it could be from the state government or the employers at their primary place of assignment)

The medical doctors and other health graduates are not exempted from this mandatory one year service.

They are also paid by the federal government their monthly allowance so if you have been wondering how much is being paid

The payment for Nigerian medical doctors and other health Corpers

It is on record that the Federal government pays all current serving medical NYSC members per year a monthly allowance of #33,000 and this is not all for this group of people,

Infact, they receive higher amount of allowance than others at the end of the month. But it should be noted that the additional month isn’t from the federal government because the federal government pays equal amount to all serving corps members.

For the medical doctors and other corps members their additional allowance which are being added to their general allowance comes from state government and the hospital where they are posted to, to serve.

So they get their full package from three ways the federal government allowance, the state allowance from state government and the place of primary assignment allowance from their serving hospital.

So the bottom-line is that the medical doctors with other health care corps members receive a higher pay monthly which is apart from their federal allowance, they also get juicy PPA allowance and state allowance.

The common reason for this higher pay allowance isn’t far-fetched, everyone knows that the medical field is quite a tedious one and at the same time more demanding.

Again, the medical corps members saves lives, exposing themselves to higher risk of contracting deadly diseases from their environment or patient that are being treated.

So they work more and need to be paid more. It is on record that a lot of them even in the past have contracted deadly diseases.

So they need to be compensated in advance which will help motivate them to execute their jobs diligently
