The affordable education loan option
Johannesburg - The SA Medical Association has called on the Health Professional Council of SA to withdraw student doctors from Tembisa hospital.
The interns spent the night sleeping in the hospital's casualty ward, Sama spokeswoman Phophi Ramathuba said on Tuesday.
“Depriving student doctors proper living quarters is an insult not only to them but to the medical profession as a whole,” said Ramathuba.
She said the Health Professional Council of SA must withdraw Tembisa's licence to teach interns.
“The interns must be relocated to another facility meeting the requirements as soon as possible.”
This comes after nine student doctors had to sleep in casualty at the hospital, after being locked out of their residence.
Thirteen student doctors were forcefully removed from flats the hospital had rented at Midrand Village after the lease expired at the end of September.
