OOH to send two more doctors for training in Singapore

They’re Dr Elizabeth Alok to train as a cardiac surgeon and Dr Terry Maino as a cardiologist.

The pair will leave for Singapore later this year for 12 months training.

OOH has so far sent 12 medical staff to the NHCS over the years for training with plans underway to send more local staff in the future.

NHCS clinical associate Professor Kenny Sin Yoong Kong says they had a request to train the Papua New Guinean team with the aim to make the PNG team self-sufficient and independent.
