Liow: Housemen not up to mark will be booted out

KUALA LUMPUR: Housemen have two years to prove their capabilities as doctors or they will be booted out of the healthcare system, said Health Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai.

“The Medical Qualifying Board will assess the housemen and if they do not show adequate clinical abilities and skills during the two years, their service will be terminated as provided under the Medical Act 1971,” he said.

He said it meant that they could not practice medicine in the country.

Liow said this in response to a Malay news report on Tuesday that questioned the quality of housemen.

The Star had also highlighted complaints about local students who had trained in some foreign universities and were found to lack core knowledge and basic expertise in medicine.

Liow said there are medical graduates studying in 11 public schools and 18 private schools locally as well as students training in Britain, the United States, Australia, Indonesia, the Middle East, Russia and India.

He said that since their education curriculum and clinical experience are diverse, the Government lengthened the houseman training in 2008 from one year to two years for more clinical exposure and guidance.

“If they do not show adequate clinical abilities or capabilities in each department after four months, their training will be extended for another three months,” he said.

Liow said the Joint Technical Accreditation Committee for Medical Education continuously evaluated medical programmes by local and foreign universities.

Last week, I went to HTPG meeting with all department, the Pengarah keep talking about housemen, housemen and housemen.

"Housemen! Datang duduk depan banyak tempat kosong. Sapa duk belakang extend lagi 2 minggu!" wadefook!

So, my medic frenz, study leklok okay!


Next, another devilish news for me. Demm.

you just got summoned!! zz

Pay more if you delay settling traffic summonses

KUALA LUMPUR: From March 1, motorists can forget about delaying payment of traffic summonses in the hope of massive discounts during campaigns organised by the police or other authorities.

The Cabinet has agreed to restructure the system for paying traffic summonses based on the principle that “the more you delay, the more you pay”, said Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha.

Motorists will also not be slapped with demerit points if they settle outstanding summonses within three months.

Depending on the category of the offence (see chart), motorists can save as much as RM150 for each summons if they choose to pay within 15 days of getting it, instead of delaying the payment up to the 60th day.

However, there will not be any reduction in the amount for the category involving serious offences which cause accidents and deaths.
