The first cohort of students from Family Health Medical School, Ghana’s Premier Private Medical School, who successfully completed their Final Part Two examinations, have proceeded on their Elective Rotation, which began on November 25, 2019.
Elective Rotation, is a compulsory exercise in the calendar of the medical students of the school who are sent to hospitals in and outside Ghana to understudy qualified and licensed medical doctors.
Some of the students are placed in University Hospitals in the United States of America (USA), United Kingdom (UK), South Africa, Germany and Nigeria, whilst others are in some Regional and General Hospitals in Ghana.
Specifically, some of them are at the University of Michigan, which is one of Family Health Medical School collaborating Universities in the United States, whiles some are attached to the Volta River Authority (VRA) Hospital in Akosombo.
