Attend the WACP 2 Day Mandatory Course in Medical Ethics

I have just realised that the West African College of Physicians (WACP) now have the Medical Ethics course as mandatory requirement, and non-attendance may mean you are ineligible to sit the next Part 1 Membership exam of the College. To make matters worse, the first course concluded 2 weeks ago, although another is in 2 weeks from now. I share this online in my diary so all affected residents are aware and apply as soon as they can.

The WEST AFRICAN COLLEGE OF PHYSICIANS (WACP) announces a 2 day mandatory course in medical ethics for all residents who are intending members through the forthcoming membership exams. It is imperative to understand you must attend this course before you are allowed to sit for the coming membership exams. See details below.
