Faculty of Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, should we still believe?
This Monday, February 27, 2017 is a day of solemn re-opening at the Faculty of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences (FMBS) of the University of Yaounde I. Between sounds and rythms, this appointment is awaited by the scops of this prestigious school, as well as the entire staff. Created in July 1962 at the Federal University of Cameroon and currently led by the Dean, Professor Ze Minkande Jacqueline, this solemn re-opening sets the course and the prospects for the new academic year.
They are thousands of young Cameroonians to launch themselves to the assault of this august institution to pursue later in the field of health, considered by some of them as a reserved domain. But for what results and effectiveness? It must be emphasized that the medical sector in Cameroon has been boiling for many years ago. Between polemics linked to the neglect of patients (the case of Monique KOUMATEKE is still present in the minds) and repeated strikes (the last one is not always absolutely resolved), there are many who are asking if is still a vocation in Cameroon?
FIS Cameroon, in its ambition of health promotion on this day of solemn return at the FMSB is reminding all those to whom we entrust our lives and those of our families that this job will remain noble against all odds. In addition to the Hippocrates oath taking which characterizes it, the Organization calls always to place people's health at the heart of their work. It is true that the health personnel also encounter many difficulties in the exercise of this profession, but by choosing this work, all have agreed to contribute to bring assistance to the populations who never hesitate to lay their future between their hands.
