There is an increase in medical graduates in our hospitals says Medical Superintendent Dr Jemesa Tudravu.

Dr Tudravu said this during the Fiji Media Association 58th annual scientific conference at the Pearl South Pacific Resort in Pacific Habour yesterday.

“Usually graduates would be around 30 or 40 and all of a sudden in the past there years the numbers have increased to 70s and 80s.

“There are also increases in the graduates from the overseas countries,” he said.

Dr Tudravu said since there was an increase in medical graduates, there was an increase in demand of some other facilities to cater the medical graduates.

“There are a shortage of doctors in our country and these graduates from the overseas come to work in our country to serve our people,” he said.
