The Medical and Dental Council of Ghana is advising those who are enrolled in medical and dental programs in Ukraine to take advantage of the government's assistance and complete their education in Ghana.
The Council has announced that it will no longer accept degree credentials from Ukrainian medical and dental schools because some of those institutions have turned to online learning. Such platforms, in the Council's opinion, fall short of the necessary training procedure.
The Registrar of the Council, Dr. Divine Ndonbi Banyubala, declared that his organization would uphold the industry's standards.
“Training to be a doctor must be in accordance with established strategies. Will potential patients be happy to be treated by a doctor who was trained online? We have to take our public interest responsibility seriously. The point is what is the kind of training that is acceptable in the world? If it is not standard, then, I am afraid, this regulator will not give any stamp of approval”, he said.
