Seventeen students of the Takoradi Technical University in the Western region have been suspended for examination malpractices.
This was after the disciplinary committee of the school found them guilty of the misconduct, Starr News has learnt.
Dean of School of Medical Sciences [SMS] of University of Cape Coast [UCC], Professor Francis Ofei, has indicated that the medical community has moved beyond discourses on diseases, disorders and conditions to research into prevention of the conditions. He also noted that attention is now paid to the social impact of conditions such as Brittle Bone Diseases, Autism and similar conditions that have impact on social lives.
The Dean explained that in the past, attention was paid only to the medical aspects of the conditions adding that the case is different in recent times, hence public health.
The Centre for International Education [CIE] in the University of Cape Coast [UCC] has organised a familiarization dinner for foreign students of the university. The dinner was also used to celebrate and award final year foreign students who demonstrated impeccable achievement in the area of academics and good behaviour.
The Director for the Centre Professor Rosemond Boohene addressing the students called on them to put into use their “four” university experience into practice.
