The Health Professions Council of Zambia has reinstated two programmes that were withdrawn at the Copperbelt University’s Michael Chilufya Sata School of Medicine in Ndola early last month due to a number of irregularities.

The Health Professions Council of Zambia had withdrawn recognition and approval of Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery and the Bachelor of Dental Surgery after a compliance monitoring inspection revealed a number of irregularities.

These included gross over-enrollment of students, an inadequate number of lecturers, engaging unregistered and unlicensed lecturers and failure to index students.

HPCZ Senior Public Relations Manager Chinyota Msimuko said at a media briefing that the reinstatement of the two programmes comes after CBU met the minimum prerequisites.

Mr. Msimuko said the Copperbelt University met the minimum prerequisites and committed to an agreed rectification road map to continue addressing all remining recommendations.

  1. There’s need to also regulate and audit the activities members of staff at HPCZ, some are overzealous because they favor some private clinics and hospitals. Some doctors from Uzbekistan even boast that they have some inspectors in their pockets. How come many dirty Chinese clinics are still operating? There’s a Chinese abortionist on Chilimbulu in Libala who doesn’t even meet basic hygiene.
