More for Doctor Wannabes

More news for our doctor wannabes. Bernama :: JPA Medical Grad Laments "Worthless Degree". Anything can happen in Bolehland. Obvious the JPA has not learned from the previous fiasco of sending our students to do medicine in an unrecognised Belgian uni some many years ago. Now we have doctors returning from Japan with degrees not recognised by MMC [pls not to confuse with MMA as many have done recently, even reporters of our mainstream papers]. So you have been warned, doctor wannabes, do make sure that the degrees awarded by the uni they send yoou to are recognised by our very own MMC.
Excerpts from the Bernama report ::
The graduate, who has been jobless since returning to Malaysia last year, said he was shocked when the JPA informed him that the Malaysian Medical Council (MMC) did not recognize the medical degree from Akita University, despite the institution being among JPA's preferred universities in Japan.....
What had puzzled him was why the JPA, which fully sponsored the medical programme, had sent him to a university which issued a degree unrecognized in Malaysia?....
He said MMC's list of recognized Japanese medical degrees was questionable as the degrees from the country's top universities -- Tokyo University and Chiba University, were not recognized.....
Meanwhile the graduate's father said:" Any parents would be heart-wrenched with what has happened to my son. His hopes of serving as a doctor in his country of birth, which is experiencing acute shortage of medical officers, went up in smoke due to bureaucratic red tape".

The Star reports that the MoH is looking into solving the doctor shortage and has come out with another brilliant ad hoc solution :: Move to make private doctors do (compulsory)government service(again). And how will the Moh do this, the report says ::
The Health Ministry is planning to make it compulsory for the 8,000 private doctors and specialists to do certain hours of compulsory service in government hospitals each year before the ministry renew their annual practising certificate [APC].

So doctor wannabes take note, more compulsory service for you all, on top of the 3 compulsory years mentioned in earlier blogs. Minister Datuk Dr Chua SL sees this as a form of social responsibility from the doctors and specialists in private sector to help ease the workload of those from government hospitals. Social responsiblity to the patients or to the doctors in government service, Datuk MINIster? As for social responsibilty to the patients, many in private practice are aready doing so, surely you are aware of that Datuk MINIster. But like most things in Bolehland, MINIster wants, MINIster gets. The MINIster is said to be working out with the APHM, the details of this further compulsory-social-responsible-service for doctors. No further compulsory service, no APC, no can practise.
Will the other socially responsible MINIsters play follow the briliant leader? Will this recommendation of further compulsory service be extended to other professions where shortages are felt too. We await further actions from the other MINIsters.
