The Provost of the College of Health Sciences, Delta State University (DELSU) Abraka, Professor Lawrence Omo Aghaoja, has raised the alarm over lack of adequate spaces for the institution’s medical doctors to perform their mandatory housemanship training.
Professor Aghaoja called on the state government to as a matter of urgency provide more spaces for doctors in the state’s medical facilities to enable them perform the training.
Professor Aghaoja, who spoke to Journalists in Abraka on Wednesday, said that such move would save newly qualified medical doctors from being rusty and also fast track their level of growth in the profession.
He said” it’s almost impossible to get spaces for Housemanship in Delta State, we have limited Capacity to train about 24, while in the state Hospital management Board,they don’t train more than 40.
“However in a year, our medical school at least, trained more than a 100 medical doctors.
“For instance, in this batch we have 27, eight others will graduate in the second batch and by April, August and December more batches will qualified”
