SMD 1993 Alumni Donation i

The 1993 Class of the School of Medicine and Dentistry (SMD) has donated five 50 inches and three 58 inches Smart Digital Satellite Televisions valued at GHS31,500.00 to the Clinical Skills and Simulation Centre of the SMD at Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) on Saturday, 2nd April, 2022.  

The Class President, Dr. Emmanuel Sowah expressed how proud they were to support such a worthy cause. According to him, ‘Education is evolving. When we were students, we went through a lot of unpleasant stresses, so we decided not to allow our children to go through the same. Medical training is stressful enough, we, therefore, made up our minds to lessen the burden on the students and staff to make the training easier and appealing.’
