UPNG School of Medical Health Sciences

Medical school classes resume today

The 30 academics stopped work on Wednesday, January 24, and gave the government one week to respond to their grievances over non-payment of their awards, dating back to January 1, 2014.

PNG National Doctors Association (PNG NDA) president Dr. James Naipao confirmed that the lecturers received a positive response yesterday and classes at the medical school will resume today (January 31).

Naipao said the UPNG’s Vice Chancellor picked up the cheque yesterday.
