Medical Corps members are those who studied medical related courses and are serving in health fields such as hospitals and clinics. Their allowance is quite different from the rest of other corps members. In this post, we will show you the NYSC allowance for medical doctors, nurses, pharmacists and others.
Please, keep in mind that NYSC allowance is the same for all states and the same amount for all corpers. The current amount is N33,000.
However, the Corps members’ Place of Primary Assignments (PPA) and state of deployment usually compensate them with stipend. But this amount varies. You may like to also check NYSC allowance for all states in Nigeria.
Like said earlier, the federal government, through the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) pays every Corps member the sum of N33,000 monthly. So, any other amount that corps members get either from their PPA or State has nothing to do with the federal government.
Doctors and other health corps members are paid higher than others by some states and PPA.
So, medical Corps members receive juicy state and PPA allowance aside from the normal allowance.
The reason for this is because medical corps members work more, and exposed to risk of contracting deadly diseases.
