UB ‘School of Medicine’ halts intake?

A series of challenges, among them shortage of teaching staff at the newly established School of Medicine (SOM) of the University of Botswana (UB) might force the school to suspend its intake for the next academic year (2012/13), WeekendPost can reveal. SOM is facing not just the teaching staff problem but also a litany of challenges. The challenges entail among others, lack of laboratory space to conduct practical sessions, pending issues with Botswana Health Profession Council, inadequate teaching facilities in all areas and delay in a law that would permit use of human bodies.
