Commissiong raps BAMP
BARBADOS ASSOCIATION of Medical Practitioners (BAMP) president Dr Carlos Chase has come under heavy fire for a statement this week criticising doctors trained in Cuba.
During a Press conference yesterday at the headquarters of the Clement Payne Centre in Crumpton Street, Bridgetown, head of the movement David Comissiong charged that Chase had not done any research and was “speaking out of ignorance”.
Comissiong, who was joined by lawyer Robert “Bobby” Clarke; Pamela Goring, parent of a Barbadian doctor who had studied in Cuba; and Erica Jordan, a Barbadian sixth-year medical student studying in Cuba, said Chase was just “mouthing off” and his statements should be rejected as such.
Chase’s remarks were sent to the BAMP membership on Monday by email. He registered concern about an alleged basic lack of medical knowledge, practical skills and confidence examining patients demonstrated by doctors trained in Cuba. (CT)
