No placements for housemen


KUALA LUMPUR: The first batch of contract house officers (HOs) completed their two-year training at the end of last year but many say they have yet to receive appointment letters to a contract or permanent medical officer (MO) post.

These HOs, who trained from December 2016 to December 2018, are worried that they cannot get government housing loans because of job insecurity, or government sponsorship for post-graduate studies, said Malaysian Medics Interna­tional (MMI) chairman Dr S.S. Vikkineshwaran.
