COMMENT | Healthcare is a citizen’s right and Malaysia is growing. In recent years, our nation has seen the mushrooming of medical schools, with a total of 32 of which 11 are public with 21 private universities.
Currently, Malaysia has a doctor-population ratio of 1:632.
Health Minister Dzulkefly Ahmad has said that the health ministry was focussing on producing quality doctors and specialisation of doctors rather than quantity. How long will it take before we can achieve our doctor-population ratio goal?
