Okudzeto is optimistic the move will help improve health delivery and also help in the interim to provide practical skills for the medical students.
“I am elated to announce that I have successfully negotiated for paid internship opportunities for 20 medical student evacuees from Ukraine at the reputable Battor Catholic Hospital in my beloved constituency. The package also includes support in securing accommodation and feeding,” Ablakwa posted on Facebook.
“All interested Ukrainian medical students who escaped the ongoing war must apply directly to the Medical Superintendent of the Battor Catholic Hospital from today. The hospital will strictly vet and screen all suitable applicants without any interference.
“Glad this win-win initiative would offer our celebrated hospital additional hands to improve health delivery in my constituency, and also help in the interim to provide practical skills for our compatriots who have been through hell and are now considering their future options. Would be great to see other health facilities replicate this North Tongu/Battor Catholic Hospital initiative,” he added.
