The Director of Medical Service of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Dr. Osei-wusu has officially confirmed that authorities have brought medical examination processes for freshmen to an end today, October 2, 2017.
The 2017 medical examination for freshmen in KNUST begun on 21st August, 2017 and was expected to end on September 30 but was extended to 2nd October. For that matter no first year student will be allowed to undergo medical examination from Tuesday, October 3.
According to the laws of 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.
The Director of medical service at KNUST in an interview with Focus FM’s John Essien said the process has been closed.
‘’we begun medical examination for freshmen as early as possible. The reason was to allow every student the opportunity to be medically examined and declared fit as required by the Universitty’s rules and regulations. We have officially brought the exercise to an end today and there is no possible extension’’.
However, no specific punishment has been spelt out for students who do not have their medical examination but in some instances, some special health conditions would not be diagnosed and treated on time if they did not have their medical examination.
