Below is the statement by ZHDA on student doctors exams

We have been following closely the developments concerning the training of medical students. They are being forced to sit for exams they have not received enough teaching on.

We believe this is a well thought out move by GVT to fast track the release of our juniors into the field

The juniors last week stressed that they had not received enough training due to the ongoing impasee which has resulted in them not having seniors to teach them and patients to learn from.

Sitting for exams under this situation goes against the University of Zimbabwe regulations.

This also affects the credibility of the degree programme, the quality of doctors produced and subsequently the quality of care provided to the patients.
