Trainee Medical Registrars Refuse To Sit For Final Exams

Some University of Zimbabwe (UZ) postgraduate medical registrars on Monday boycotted their end of course examinations saying they missed out on practical lessons because of the ongoing doctors’ strike.

A trainee registrar who spoke to argued that sitting for exams without having undergone practical lectures will make them half-baked doctors. Said the trainee:

Most of us missed about two-thirds of the practical teaching. Therefore, we cannot sit for those examinations and that means adhering to the university regulations which state that we should not sit for those exams until we do those 12 weeks of clinical rotation.

Doctors have been on strike for over two months and resultantly, medical students have missed their bedside teaching and lectures due to the absence of patients and doctors in hospitals.

The government has responded to the doctors’ strike by firing more than 200 of them.
