“They Treat Us as Errand Boys” College of Medicine Students Lambast Lecturers
Students of the College of Medicine and Allied Health Sciences (COMMAHS) at Jui who ask for anonymity have vehemently lambasted their Lecturers whom they accuse of absenteeism and treating them as errand boys for their private concerns.
The Student informed that Lecturers are not punctual and suspect that most of them concentrate on private medical undertakings around town, they say. It is lamentable to note that the college is not equip with materials and logistics as in other countries.
The students say the fee of more than Five Million Leones per year is exorbitant for their parents and there are no facilities for them to borrow books and in fact Lecturers demand large sums of money to write their dissertation thesis themselves.
They fear that they are not hopeful upon graduation to get salaries taking into consideration the pin-code problems that is presently affecting hundreds of volunteer nurses.
They recalled that gone are days when Sierra Leoneans required seven years of university education to become certified doctors, today with the unfavorable financial climate evident by Sierra Leoneans, it is very rare for Sierra Leoneans to foot the bill for further medical training in Britain instead trit themselves either at the college of medicine who have difficulties in acquiring scholarships or in any of the private institutions for nursing training yet to be approve by Government. Even those who benefit from further training in China are recruited from graduated and senior medical staff personnel.
