News and facts never come together as information. The fact is the Malaysian Health Ministry takes in medical students as housemen/ apprentices in government hospitals as it is required under the relevant statutes. However as a matter of prudence the Health Ministry has also implemented a practice to only accept those who have rendered an excellent service during their housemanship and who are committed to dedicate their lives and careers for public services which is not everyone’s cup of tea. Under the Malaysian civil service once a junior doctor is given tenure it would be very hard the government as an employer to terminate his employment. I personally know a few relatives and friends who exploited the system and used their permanent employment status to elevate their careers using government’s money to continue study as specialists before running off to the private sectors or to Singapore health services leaving the Malaysian Health Ministry to dry. There are also some other who use it to secure a permanent income working half asleep at government hospitals while earning twice as much moonlighting doing locum at private practices. Therefore the 2 year contract usually given to junior doctors is used as a way to gauge the performance and commitment of junior doctors before offering them a permanent deal. In view of the recent COVID-19 crisis however, the Malaysian Health Ministry had taken in as many as 10000 medical students to become junior doctors. Somehow these newly hired junior doctors alongside their older colleagues (most of them are not offered tenure due to the obvious issues which they are aware of), around 23000 of them is taking advantage of the situation and are trying o blackmail the government into hiring them on a permanent basis. If you listen to the news the Malaysian government is not insensitive to the predicament of these junior doctors although they also need to consider their qualification on case to case basis before offering them permanent posts. That is why the Malaysian government has offered them another 2 year extension after they have finished their mandatory service with benefits similar to those with permanent posts together with full sponsorship should they want to pursue their studies as specialists. A responsible government needs to make a responsible decision by both being accommodative to a reasonable demand as well as taking stand when it needs to. The Msian government did just that. To be fair the healthcare workers only did a 10 minutes walkabout to send a message without abandoning their posts. It was not a strike. I have to commend Al Jazeera for the catchy headlines though. Anyway a 2 minute clip is just news..not information. Don’t be an idiot by reacting to a news snippet.
