CONGRATULATIONS HONORABLE MINISTERS' OF HEALTH: 'FEC approves placement of doctors for Housemanship




Dear All,
In our weekly news round we came across this innovative and forward looking initiative to solve the 'excrutiating pain' and despair that young graduating medical doctors have suffered in almost two decades in our country: after 6-grueling years of
medical training and examinations.  Most end up without Housemanship jobs and therefore no hope of even temporary registration, talk less of full registration. Most end up, like the one I met recently doing an unskilled menial job as a volunteer. Really heart breaking. We are truly excited at this announcement. 

We, from our centre congratulate the Minister for Health, Professor Isaac Adewole and the Hon Minister of State for Health, Dr Osagie Ohanire for this wonderful, career-saving, profession-saving initiative. We await to see the details and its implementation but there is no doubt that just its announcement elates us. Congratulations, sirs! Generations of newly qualified medical doctors shall write your name in Gold.

'FEC approves placement of doctors'
By Terhemba Daka, Abuja   |   08 June 2017   |   4:28 am

Minister of Health, Prof Isaac Adewole
The Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting presided over by Acting President Yemi Osinbajo yesterday gave approval for the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria to facilitate the placement of doctors across health institutions in the country.
The Minister of Health, Isaac Adewole, said the programme, which would kick off by 2018 is essentially to bring to an end the suffering being faced by young Nigerian doctors.
“At today’s meeting, Council considered a memorandum from the Federal Ministry of Health to centrally coordinate, place and fund the placement of house officers in accredited health institutions across the country.
“By this singular act, the suffering of thousands of Nigerian young doctors will be put to an end,” the Minister said. ‘’
Yet, we ask when the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN) will be reconstituted?
Joseph Ana.
