2012-2019 Final-Year Medical Students complete

Congratulations to the 2012-2019 Medical Students’ Year badge, for a successful 7-Year course with hard-work and sleepless nights.

The 2012-2019 Medical students year badge has successfully completed their 4-Year course work + 3-Year clinical practicals on Tuesday, August 12. The great efforts by these wonderful men and women never went in vain after their 7 years of great assiduous in obtaining MBChB from the University for Development Studies.

MBChB Medicine is under the School of Medicine and Health Sciences (SMHS) of the University. The key approach used by the school is the Problem-Based Learning approach for the training of medical doctors and other health professionals. As part of this methodology of training, students are sent to rural and deprived communities for four weeks where the students are expected to identify health problems and offer community service as well.

This form of training is known as Community-Based Education and Service (COBES). Students in their clinical years are also deployed to district hospitals for six to eight weeks as part of the PBL system of training and community service which is the core mandate of the SMHS. The district postings also afford the students the opportunity to provide support to medical officers in those hospitals.

The course trains and prepares students for practice in the healthcare systems of today and the future. The course amalgamates science and clinical learning so you can apply scientific knowledge and concepts to your clinical practice.

Visit uds.edu.gh for more information about the School of Medicine and Health Sciences.

Once again, we say congratulations to our new to-be doctors; all the best in your endeavours.
