A consultant Neurosurgeon at the Tamale Teaching Hospital (TTH) and a senior lecturer at the University for Development Studies (UDS) medical school, Dr Abass Adam has said that it was not a privilege for Tamale to have a neuro center.
Dr Abass said Tamale deserved to the best neuro center just like any other part of the country and that has motivated him to move from Accra to Tamale.
Dr Abass Adam stated this when the Tamale Dakpema, Naa Mohammed Alhassan Dawuni paid a working visit to the hospital.
The neuro center according to him started since he completed his training in Germany and he couldn’t stay in Accra because the nation’s capital has enough specialist.
Dr Abass who left the Ridge hospital in Accra to come to Tamale said it is an honor for him to serve the people in northern Ghana. In an interview with Zaa News, Dr Abass said students since 2009 have stopped going to the south to complete their training.
The UDS medical School according to Dr Abass also provides training to a newly qualified medical officers, before they are certified to become medical doctors.
He adviced and encouraged medical officers that they can make it here (northern region); and all what they need to do was to be serious and committed.
The UDS medical school since inception in 2009 had its first batch graduate in 2012 and two batches in 2013.
