She emphasized the importance of maintaining a respectful relationship with seniors and seeking guidance when in doubt.

Dr. Hafez Adam, Director for External Health Cooperation at the Ministry of Health (MOH), highlighted the Ministry’s commitment to ensuring professionalism and accountability among medical professionals. He emphasized the need for adherence to professional ethics and guidelines, especially as the sector works towards universal healthcare delivery.

Dr. Adam acknowledged the shortage of doctors in many districts and emphasized the necessity of posting Physician Assistants to fill these gaps and provide essential healthcare services to communities in need. He expressed hope that the development of a supervision model would enhance the quality of internship for Physician Assistants and ensure the effective implementation of guidelines.
