The result of master program announced in April recently have disappointed many MOs. Non of the A&e department MOs got the posting. One anaest MO out of 7 got it.
As there is increasing numbers of MOs, yet the number of master places had remains the same, we need for a solution.
One of the major problem of post graduates training program in Malaysia is it was conducted mainly by Universities and assist by KKM.
The numbers of postgraduates training places are restricted due to limit resources of universities.
Therefore, I proposed that KKm should be more actively involved by setting up the following:
Upgrade academic of medicine to be more importance role.
I personally wish to see the AM will be upgrade to institutions similar like royal college in UK. With this , we can offer postgraduate diploma like MRCP, MRCOG and so forth.
Failure of KKM to provide training will cause the lack of specialists in the hospital.
