The Medical and Dental Council of Ghana has cautioned that it will no longer recognize degree certificates issued by Medical and Dental Schools from Ukraine.
The council however encouraged students currently studying Medicine and Dentistry in Ukraine to take advantage of the government’s intervention to continue their training in Ghana.
The Council’s Registrar, Dr. Divine Ndonbi Banyubala made it known that “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”.
