Health experts in Zambia have called for the establishment of a independent regulatory body to monitor private training institutions providing training for doctors, the Zambia Daily Mail reported on Tuesday. health workers
The Zambia Medical Association, a local body representing registered medical practitioners, has expressed concern that private training institutions have mushroomed without anyone checking on the quality of training they were offering.
Aaron Mujajati, the association’s president said new private training institutions were not being monitored to ensure they produce quality graduates, adding that they were no quality assurance examinations to ensure that the doctors graduating from newly established private universities were appropriately trained.
“We have not yet started producing graduates from these private universities which are training doctors, but the problem is that we do not have gatekeepers to ensure that high standards are met,” he was quoted as saying by the paper.
“The issue about medical training as compared to these other professions is that we are dealing with life and once you make a mistake and it is lost, you cannot replaced it,” he added.
According to hi, the medical profession was growing and was dynamic in terms of ethics and that the government might not have resources to monitor.
In the past, doctors were able to regulate themselves because they were few, he added.
“For the past five years, we have been pushing government to allow doctors to regulate themselves,” he said. Enditem
