A total of 168 medical doctors that have completed university education have been deployed at various hospitals countrywide and urged on observing professionalism in treating and giving medical care to patients every day.
Of the total number, 94 have been permanently hired while 74 are on internship.
The deployed medical doctors have been advised to observe professionalism at all times.
“A patient needs a doctor who listens and takes care of him. Even if you are experienced but disrespect patients, your services will not last. Listen to patients and explain what you are about to do with or for them and why,” said the state minister in the Ministry of Health, Dr Ndimubanzi Patrick as he briefed 168 medical doctors yesterday.
Dr Mugabe Fiacre Byiringiro, who represented the commissioned medical doctors advised them to apply skills acquired during internship.
“We have been carrying out internship for one year. We learnt a lot of practical skills other than theoretical courses from classes. We are going to be practical in applying what we have learnt,” he promised.
The 74 intern medical doctors have been deployed to 46 hospitals countrywide.
