Trainee Doctors Barred From Joinning Strikes – FG

By Damilola Adeyemo

ABUJA – The Federal Government has issued a stern warning that it would no longer allow trainee doctors on one year internship programme in hospitals across the country to participate in industrial action.

In a statement, The Chairman of the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria, Prof. Abba Hassan, said “By law, they are not supposed to join any association until they are fully registered as doctors. For now, they are on probation and they should not belong to any union or join in a strike.

“Anybody who is caught will be brought before the council and if found guilty, will be sanctioned. The person may be barred from practice.”

“They must commit themselves fully to pay attention to their seniors who are training them. This is not the era of people going into private practice. If they spend their time understudying their seniors very well, by the time they finish the 12 months internship, they will be very good doctors,”
