AMA: Abbott Funding New Medical School At Curtin Is Purely Political Decision

Funding this new medical school appears to be a purely political decision. Associate professor Owler this is a calamitous captain call by calamitous Captain Chaos.

The Australian medical Association has questions the federal government’s decision to open a new medical school in Western Australia. Associate professor Owler has said “opening a new medical school in Western Australia at this time does not make sense,”

The associate professor has said that there is no evidence that a new Medical School is needed anywhere in Australia. He said that we need training places in hospitals and not new medical schools. The AMA has said that all governments must focus on increasing pre-vocational and vocational places instead of producing more students and pumping them into the system. The AMA and has said that the training pipeline is blocked.

Associate professor Owler said that the priority should be insuring that graduates become fully trained doctors. He also said” that means providing the appropriate number of training places.” This is your professor also pointed out that the Federal Government’s decision to fund the new medical school at Curtin isn’t it possibly based on any medical workforce planning recommendations.

“Funding this new medical school appears to be a purely political decision. This week’s Federal Budget revealed yet again that the States and Territories are in urgent need of funding for their public hospitals and funding to support their exiting medical workforce, not a new medical school for students with little hope of getting a job at the end of their training.” commented Associate professor Owler.
