The Director of Health Service at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Dr. Osei Kwaku Wusu-Ansah has advised all freshmen of the university to take part in the medical examination processes in order to be declared healthy enough to be fully admitted into the university.
The admission of a student is subject to him/her being certified medically fit by the university Director of medical Service to pursue the program of study in KNUST. Every student is therefore required to undergo a medical examination at the university’s Students Clinic (opposite Hall 7)
The 2017 medical examination for freshmen in KNUST has begun earlier before the official arrival date for freshmen into the university.
Speaking in an interview with Focus Fm reporter, John Essien, Dr Osei-wusu emphasized that the process has begun early in order to ease the pressure of having a large number of students queued to have their medical examination done before matriculation. This year’s freshmen medical examination started on August 21 and is expected to be completed by the end of September.
The Director of Health Service equally entreated all continuing students who did not do their medical examination in first year to do so this time to save themselves from any punishment from the university.
“The law is that you are declared medically fit before you can pursue any program in this university. So when things get tough, that is what will be used against you. We entreat all students to have their medical examination done because you never know when the whip will be cracked. This year we want to make sure that all students are given the opportunity to get it done before matriculation,” he pointed out.
