NST: NIBONG TEBAL: Specialists who have practised overseas for more than 10 years are exempted from serving three years in government hospitals when they return to Malaysia.
Health Minister Datuk Liow Tiong Lai said yesterday that the specialists would instead be required to serve at community clinics on weekends.
Liow said the new ruling was for specialists above 45 years old.
Liow said more than 100 specialists currently practising overseas, especially in Britain and Singapore, had agreed to return to Malaysia to serve.
There are 1,800 specialists serving 26 million people in the country.
