The Greenhills School of Health Sciences has organized a graduation ceremony for about 86 students in various course disciplines to start full practicing professions in the field of work.
The graduating students in course areas were 49 physiotherapy assistants, 21 healthcare assistants, 10 medical laboratory assistants and seven occupational therapy assistants.
The students who have lived under strict policies and regulation of Christian values and norms are expected to reflect their commitment to God and his words at their places of work.
Addressing the ceremony in Accra, the founder and the Executive Board Chairman, Rev. Dr. Charles Antwi–Boasiako, charged the successful students to be good ambassadors for the school.
The school, according him, is fully accredited by the National Vocational Training Institute (NVTI) to offer Grades 1 and 2 certificate programmes, and the Allied Health Professionals Council to also offer a two-year certificate programme.
As part of its corporate and social responsibility, the school, in collaboration with George Fox University, USA, conducted free physiotherapy treatment to the general public of which over 500 patients with physiotherapy conditions received free treatment from all walks of life in some parts of the Greater Accra Region.
This paper was hinted that the free treatment would be continued later this week, with the help of the George Fox University, USA medical personnel in and around some parts of region.
Provost of the Department of Health Sciences of the University of Ghana, Rev. Dr. Ferdinand Ayi-Kumi, admonished the outgoing students to reflect the teachings and life of Christ during their service delivery to mankind.
Rev. Dr. Ayi-Kumi charged them to respect and act professionally wherever they found themselves as employees and always look not at only the certificates, but the individual qualities and professional disciplines in them.
On his part, the Minister In-charge of Tertiary Education, Prof. Kwesi Yankah, slammed the authorities who allow private institutions to affiliate their institutions to public universities for long years before granting them a charter to be on their own.
The minister hinted that the Nana Addo-led NPP government would ensure the causes the impediment are cleared to pave the way for private persons to flood the country with universities.
He also intimated that work behind the scenes is on-going to break all unnecessary bureaucracy and make it easier for institutions to be given presidential charter to start issuing their own degrees.
