Time to have a contract

Medical graduates from public medical schools have been having it their way. Many top graduates have opted to offer their services in a foreign land immediately upon graduation.

Now, here is the catch. Their medical education has been heavily subsidized by none other than the general public, which are tax paying Malaysians. So the logical conclusion is that these newly graduated doctors should serve some time for the population that supported their medical education. This is not happening. Well, at least the good ones tend to leave much to the delight of a foreign land that spent nothing educating them.

It is urgent that the Government requires a contract to be signed by the medical students stipulating the minimum period of service upon graduation, failure of which, one has to repay a certain amount. The hemorrhaging of doctors to neighboring countries must stop, well at least not at Malaysia’s expense.

There is a duty to tax paying Malaysians.

      I believe that private students, having to pay for their own education, should be exempt from any contract forcing government service, as is happening now. So foreign graduates that return are forced to serve but public university students, funded by the public, scoots off to another country upon graduation.
