Resumption of supplementary medical classes scheduled for third week of this month

Plans are underway to reopen supplementary classes for the examinations of the final year part 2 at Universities of Medicine across Myanmar in the third week of this month, said Dr Zaw Wai Soe, Rector of University of Medicine 1, Yangon. He said that the supplementary classes will be reopened with the permission of the Ministry of Health and Sports, and the students must undergo COVID-19 tests.
“The course work of our Universities of Medicine includes Final Year Part I and Part II. In fact, the duration of Final Year Part II is one-and-half years. But, there is a supplementary exam, too,” he said. Supplementary examinations are ones conducted after the students failed their previous examination. “There are 27 students (who will sit the supplementary examination) at our university . We are informing each of them. Some students are travelling, and we are informing them. When they arrive, they must receive COVID-19 tests. We will teach them for two weeks, and then they will have an a-week break before the exam,” he said. “In fact, they had already attended the classes,” said Dr Zaw Wai Soe. “Human resources, especially for the health sector, are important. So, the classes will be reopened one by one.”
“Teaching will be conducted only in areas where there is no case of COVID-19. We have prepared to use videoconferencing to teach them. Courses will be taught in a combination of online learning and face to face learning.” There are about 100 students who will sit the supplementary examinations of the Final Year Part II in Universities of Medicine across Myanmar. Through the Department of Human Resourses for Health, permission has been sought from the Ministry of Health and Sports to allow the universities to reopen the regular classes of the Final Year Part II.—Htet Hlyan (Translated by Maung Maung Swe)
