King’s Commercial attends scientific conferences to support recruitment for AMCE
King’s Commercial has attended scientific conferences in Lagos, Johannesburg and Senegal as part of our recruitment support for the African Medical Centre of Excellence (AMCE).
The AMCE, located in Abuja, Nigeria, is a private medical specialist hospital that is currently under construction. It is a tertiary healthcare institution that is privately owned by Afreximbank and is one of the components of the Health and Medical Tourism Program of Afreximbank. King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust London is the clinical partner. The AMCE in Abuja is the first of a network of tertiary healthcare facilities to be established by African Export Import Bank across the continent.
The areas of expertise are in oncology, cardiovascular disease, and haematology. The hospital’s strategic plan includes a Cyclotron facility with the capacity to provide radioisotopes, locally and internationally, in addition to Positron Emission Tomography. The AMCE is creating jobs not just for medical experts but also for non-medical positions. With close to a thousand positions, Nigerians both home and abroad will benefit from the employment opportunities.
The conference events were very successful with a great deal of interest shown in the AMCE and in the many positions available.

Dr Tunji “Tj” Lasoye, Director of Medical Education at King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, and Medical Director for Nigeria and West Africa with King’s Commercial, said “I am delighted that King’s College London and Afreximbank have signed an MoA to test the feasibility of establishing a medical and nursing school in Abuja, Nigeria. King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust via its subsidiary King’s Commercial have partnered with Afreximbank to establish the African Medical Centre of Excellence, which will be a top-class medical facility and is set to open in Abuja, Nigeria in early 2025. Having a King’s College London medical and nursing school alongside the medical facility will ensure a prosperous healthcare system for generations to come.”
