Uni and That’s It!
Like all health professions in Timor Leste, once you have graduated from university, there is no ongoing education or ‘upskilling’; what knowledge you learn at university is it for the duration of your career.
Making a Change
At the request of the head of Dili District Health, the Midwifery team at Maluk Timor have been working alongside, mentoring, the midwives at Vera Cruz Clinic, and providing fortnightly short training sessions on topics such as infection control and neonatal resuscitation. It has been very exciting to see this program get up and running and see the Vera Cruz midwives excited to learn more!
