Health Services to be affected with Medical students on boycott

With the students at the University of Papua New Guinea boycotting classes for three weeks now, medical students at the School of Medicine and Health Science -Taurama Campus are also not attending clinical practices at the Port Moresby General Hospital.

 Although this may not affect the hospital at the moment with Residential Doctors in place, it surely will disturb the health system in the country if medical students continue to boycott and consequently not graduate next year. 

This will mean that there will be no new doctors, pharmacists, laboratory technicians and medical imaging technicians to add to the health service and delivery in the country. 

A doctor within the hospital said hat though the hospital may not be facing a staff at the moment, the delivery of health service in the country is on hold with medical students not attending classes and clinic practicals at the hospital. PNGFM
