Sub-standard Copperbelt University programmes banned

MUJAJATI

NOMSA NKANA, Lusaka
THE Health Professions Council of Zambia (HPCZ) has withdrawn two programmes in the School of Medicine from the Copperbelt University (CBU) for failing to meet set standards in accordance with the Health Professions Act.
HPCZ registrar Aaron Mujajati told a media briefing yesterday that the council has withdrawn recognition and approval of Bachelors of Medicine and Dental Surgery.
Dr Mujajati said this is after a recent compliance monitoring inspection at CBU which established gross over-enrolment of students and inadequate lecturers.
The council also established that the university engaged unregistered and unlicensed lecturers and failed to index students with HPCZ.http://epaper.daily-mail.co.zm/
