Initially I wanted to share about this at facebook.
Okay lemme straight to the point.
Because of too many approvals from govern for IPTS and IPTA's graduates in medical field, plus the number of doctors will be increasing years by years, there'll be not enough place(hospital) for the soon-to-graduate housemen. So some of us will have to wait in order to get to do the Housemanship.
Prof Anuar has quoted very well that we will be having surplus of doctors and most of the medical schools are not producing doctors of good quality. It is very clear that MMC’s hands are tied! He has also commented on the attitude of the current generation of doctors who wants office hour job and are not keen to really care for the patients. The shift system is just a knee jerk reaction from MOH to reduce the “surplus” scenario on public’s eye.
Then came another speech from our Ex-DG, Tan Sri Dr Ismail Merican during the MMA AGM in May 2012. His speech, even though is long, does tell us the current scenario that the medical fraternity is facing in Malaysia. In fact, his title ”Medicine at the crossroads: The Malaysian Dilemma” is well worded and appropriate. You can view his speech herehttps://dl.dropbox.com/u/55059024/Ex-DG%20speech.pdf According to him, we are already having surplus of doctors as we do not have enough training hospitals and trainers. He has also commented on the attitude of the current generation of doctors and parents who interfere and pamper their “grown-up” kids! A well written speech, I must say.
In his another post,
The “Foot in the Mouth syndrome” that is happening for the nurses now, will soon hit the medical field. Then our great minister will say ” we need specialist but the medical colleges are only producing general training doctors. That’s why we have surplus of doctors!!” WTH.
