The Department of Physician Assistant Studies has held a consultative meeting with students to discuss pertinent issues about their academic and welfare concerns for the forward march of the Department.
The gathering afforded opportunity for faculty members and students to discuss a wide range of issues within the Department in particular and the University at large.
Among the attendees were faculty members, administrators and students from levels 100 to 400.
Addressing the meeting, the Head, Department of Physician Assistant Studies, Dr. Stephen Ocansey, congratulated the fresh students on their admission into the Department and tasked them to take their studies seriously.
He explained that the Department received 100 freshers for level 100 and 12 students for level 200.
Dr. Ocansey pointed out that 110 students were transferred from the Christian Service University College into UCC to pursue Physician Assistant Studies in levels 100,200, 300 and 400.
He announced that plans were afoot to seek the services of 30 part-time lecturers and demonstrators to teach the newly-introduced Physician Assistant Dental Therapy.
Following the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the Department and Marist College in USA, Dr. Ocansey announced that the Department would receive students from the College in May 2023 for clinical rotation.
He expressed his resolve to make such interactions with various stakeholders a regular feature of the Department's work.
