The interesting thing is that a medical Doctor has to approve your results before the public can consume it.
Your INFERIORITY COMPLEX is gradually eating you up.
I wish you can leave Nigeria and come in contact with accomplished Lab. scientists.

Your MATES abroad are conducting meaningful researches that affect patients’ care positively, you are here thinking of how to convert your rented one room self contain into Lab. Just to prove to the ignorant Public that you are a Medical Doctor.

I heard a lot of you now hang STETHOSCOPES on the clings of your vehicles, portraying as medical doctors, please why can’t you just be proud of yourself...?
Some of u PHUCK ignorant Ladies using the name “medical Doctor”... I pity the deceived ladies.

Please, allow medical doctors be

I really don't see anything wrong in telling Doctors to do call duties in the lab as every doctor is expected to have basic knowledge in every other aspect of healthcare system. However, the way the roaster was arranged is wrong. The doctors are not supposed to have doctors as 2nd and third on call in the Lab. They are supposed to learn from the lab scientists, not fellow doctors. Medical students while in school have postings in the lab during which they went there and learnt the basics from Medical lab scientists.
As the head of medical team, a Doctor can't function well if he doesn't even have an idea what goes on in the various sections of the healthcare system.

I just hate doctors generally and I despise Nigerian doctors particularly. Bunch of nitwits and Big Pharma pimps.

All they know how to do is recommend stupid drugs and needless tests and procedures.

Hopefully I'll never need them in my life. Shout out to all hardworking and compassionate nurses.

Another thread filled with spiteful people who either secretly want to be doctors or tried and failed being one. Google pathologist , haemagologist, and oncologist definitions and see what it comes up with. ALL MEDICAL TRAINING POSITIONS REQUIRE LABORATORY POSTINGS. It is the norm in the developed world and definitely a norm in Nigeria. Spiteful folks gonna find fault with that cuz they couldn't stand the pressure

I've gat no fu‹king comment, Teaching hospitals are glorified mortuary. These medical student use patients for mere practice, imagine a medical student using Google to check your symptoms.
UNIVERSITY OF JOS TEACHING HOSPITAL, it shall not be well with you guys.

#BACKTODAURA
baba u said a medical student.they r still at the learning process.alot of seniors are there to guide them to ensure they learn well.am sure after all those googling of a thing u said.they are definitely going to meet a registrar or specialist to present the case who will now correct them accordingly.it is same all over the world.no where in the world will a student undergoing training will be allow to see a patient all alone even if he is the best student.

It s just a shame that the person who posted this lacks understanding on how these four departments copied in the letter work. Message like this could further cause chaos in the health care system and it can mislead uninformed populace. Chemical pathology, Haematology, Pathology and "Medical" microbiology are fields where doctors do their residency training just like any other field of medicine. You need exposure bro!

Only in nigeria:

Will you see Medical doctors have and run pharmacies in their hospitals.

Most medical doctors who work in government establishments still have their private hospitals, and they direct patients to their hospitals and charge them high.

Some medical doctors teach courses







irrelevant to what they studied. How can a




medical doctor be employed to teach in zoology department.

In a sane country,
A medical doctor only works with human health.

Medical doctors don't own and operate pharmacies

Medical doctors who are employed at government establishments, do not tun their own private hospitals.


Running a private practice while working with public service isn't a crime but diverting patients to your own clinic is the crime. In the sane clime which you wrote up there like uk, doctors in the public service ie NHS are also allowed to run private practice since they work max of 56 hours/week , same thing is also obtainable in Australia.
Secondly , a doctor can't use his license to run a pharmacy , only a pharmacist can , so he has to employ one or at worse , collaborate with one.

Lastly I will like to see that doctor teaching zoology , I hope he isnt a medical microbiologist because sometimes the contents of these two programs can overlap making you believe the doctor is teaching zoology

nice observation however
Those Doctors u see on the roster are there for specialization job.so those 2nd and 3rd on call u see there are the senior registrar and consultant pathologist and they r the only people that can guide those 1st on call properly.even in advance countries same thing applies

Yeah, that's my point. Many a times, Doctors here in Nigeria divert patients to their private clinics. And of course i rightly said, Doctors don't have the right to own and run a pharmacy, but here in Nigeria all of them do that.

For the last point, i know a medical doctor employed in the zoology department in one of the top Universities in Nigeria.

I did a test once. When the result came out I discussed it with a church elder of ours who was a doctor at LUTH. He said the result didn't make sense because if I had what it said I had I would not be standing there talking to him. He said a lot of people get false results from labs. He said I should come to LUTH and he would run the test himself. That was done and it was found that the original test was a false positive.
i got a false negative earlier this year after an operation (which is more dangerous). Now I'm suffering.

Many ignorant people on this thread. This UCTH is a residency training centre. By rule, doctors all over the world must go through laboratory posting in the course of residency training. This is what this CMAC is simply saying in this circular. I am sure the director of the labs understand these proceedures. U must be a baby lab scientist to think anybody is ready to chance u in your laboratory domain..

That's sure dangerous. My case was bad too, though, because I had commenced treatment based on the false result, meaning I had ingested substances I didn't need and spent some good money.

I hope you didn't find out too late!

Go and research about medical specialties called morbid anatomy, chemical pathology, haematology and medical microbiology, and find out those who are qualified for such specialties and how trainings are carried out for them.
Stop displaying your ignorance for all to see.

Dont mind them...spewing nonsense...
When doctors were in school taking all the courses under BMS, including biochemistry, micro biology, pharmacology, pathology and inclusding the course the damnn lab scientist..None of them complained it was too much and they should steer clear......
Doctors are trained all round almost all the courses in medical sciences I see no reason why they can dabble abit into labs if it will make work better....
Lab scientist don't just want doctors to come and boss over them in their niche the way it's been happening with nurses because of the nature of the work relationship....Instead of finding a way to make the team work initiative progress like u said they are vexing up and down

Has this been reported to the authority?
a teacher of the deceased took the case to the authorities but the scientist got a medical Doctor Who bears exactly the same name as his, and the medical doctor came up and said he owns the diagnostic centre and he was the one who did the operation (and certified doctors have the right to kill without prosecution)

Lol they receive all these quality trainings only to come back later to chase and take over the other allied health professionals. grin grin

The training medical doctors receive is second to none and so intense and miles ahead compared to the other allied health professionals. They are made to buy and read (eat) expensive books. I knew of one who spent close to 100k buying medical textbooks back in the days when there was little or no internet access.

When they said readers are leaders, they were not

This is a welcome development. It should be implemented in all teaching hospitals in the country. It will sanitize medical practice and reduce laboratory errors. clinicians will trust laboratoru results more and rate of repeat tests will reduce.

This post is either based on ignorance or mischief.

Resident doctors are graduate doctors undergoing post-graduate training in different areas of Pathology / Laboratory Medicine. The training must be in the laboratories!

Please this is a Teaching Hospital!!
