The new WACP price list was brought about by the effects current global recession on some of the major economies in the region such as the continued loss of value by the Nigerian Naira(NGN). The current WACP Exchange Rate =1 USD = N420.

The upward review of the prices by the West African College of physicians has seen a very drastic increment to who members and aspiring members of the college now has to pay in other to qualify for different services offered by the college.

An example is seen where in the WACP latest prices list, a primaries’ candidate of the college from Nigeria is expected to pay a total sum of  NGN136,500.00 just for the exams. By early last year, that price was still at about NGN65000.

It is important to note that despite of the price reviews by the WACP, the West African College of Surgeons, WACS are yet to follow such steps.
