Speaking at the occasion, the Minister of Higher Education, Jacques Fame Ndongo hailed the officials of the school for the work they are doing. He called on the laureates to put into practice the knowledge they acquired, be efficient and treat patients without any bias. Concerning the clinical and therapeutic examination which is written in the sixth year a Fame Ndongo used the occasion to warn those who did not succeed in the examination that in future it will be more difficult because the Head of State has stressed on quality and that training must be highly competitive not only in Cameroon but in the Central African sub region and the world.
