Lack of training frustrating us–Resident doctors

Posted 4 months, 2 wks ago
The National Association of Resident Doctors on Wednesday, lamented that the Federal Government was frustrating resident doctors due to lack of training.

The doctors, at the National Executive Council meeting held in Calabar, Cross River State, also alleged that the Federal Government’s insincerity has often forced  Nigerian physicians to seem indifferent to patients’ conditions.

The National President of NARD, Dr. John Onyebueze, who stated this after the meeting, said Nigerian doctors were rated among the best in the world.

He accused the Federal Government of not funding the training of doctors, adding that this had frustrated the profession in the country.

Onyebueze, who spoke on the theme, Funding Post Graduate Medical Education a Panacea for Medical Tourism, said the perceived ‘indifferent’ behaviour of the doctors was as a result of repeated insincerity by the various government agencies.

He said, “We pray they will learn to uphold their side of the bargain to curb incessant strikes in the sector. Over the years, there has been disharmony in the health sector owing to inability of various government agencies to abide by agreements reached or obey extant circulars.  A case in mind is the July 14, 2016 stakeholders’ meeting chaired by Hon. Yakubu Dogara.”

Onyebueze lamented that resident doctors were made to work under very unfavourable conditions, thus adding to their frustration which, according to him, is vented on patients.

“It is heart breaking that resident doctors, who are the pillars of the medical workforce and work under unbearable conditions with resilience, are abysmally remunerated and treated with contempt by our employers who delay  our salaries and later pay in fractions when eventually paid. This is frustrating us,” he said.

However, wife of former Governor of Cross River State, Mrs. Onari Duke, who chaired the event, challenged doctors to rise above the current situation and work out solutions to their persistent loggerheads with authorities.
