students launch against UADY after suicide of medical intern

MÉRIDA, Yuc. (appro). – Students from the Faculty of Medicine once again attacked the authorities of the Autonomous University of Yucatán (UADY), this time due to the recent suicide of one of their colleagues at the Tahdziú clinic, where she was doing her residency.

For reasons presumably related to her career, the young intern, KJGK, 25 years old and originally from Mérida, took her own life on September 15 in her office at the Tahdziú medical center, a municipality that by the way is among the most impoverished of the continent.

The case unleashed the anger and indignation of the students who once again filled social networks with accusations and reproaches against the authorities of the UADY and its Faculty of Medicine for the lack of interest and lack of support towards their students.

Although the girl’s death was made public on September 15, it was until the next day that the Faculty of Medicine issued a statement on the matter.

In a statement, the Faculty of Medicine expressed that it was “deeply moved by the death of the intern, KJGK, who was rendering her social service at the Tahdziú Medical Unit.”

Interns and interns from the Faculty of Medicine will return to hospitals: UADY

He assured that university authorities in coordination with personnel from the Subdirectorate of Mental Health and Education of the Ministry of Health “are already taking the pertinent actions.”

“The irreparable loss of a young doctor fills us with consternation and mourns the entire community of the Faculty,” he reiterated.

He argued that “Medicine is an arduous, hard and demanding career that demands the maximum of our abilities”, and stated: “At the Faculty we understand it that way and that is why our psychopedagogical department provides support to our students every day to prevent moments crisis ”.

Finally, he endorsed his commitment “to the comprehensive, humanistic and responsible training of students”, for which he asked heads of teaching and teachers “to maintain close communication with students and make available to those who require it, the services of the professionals who work in the psycho-pedagogical department of our dependency ”.

However, such a statement stirred the anger of the students, who questioned the sayings of their authorities who, with the campaign “UADY, I do not believe you anything”, reproached a string of situations suffered by students of that maximum house of studies.

The flow of complaints from medical students includes various types of human rights violations, exploitation, excessive pressure, mistreatment, harassment.

“The department of psychopedagogy is a joke, I say it from my own skin and I know it from that of many colleagues. ‘If you can’t unsubscribe’, this has been said over and over again to students, to all those who at some point have a crisis.

Where is the humanist side? Where was the empathy? Are you moved? What if they do something about it with those doctors who only humiliate their interns? Or how about those teachers who have different colored hair or tattoos that won’t turn you down? Why don’t they do something with all the staff who are sexist and misogynistic? ”, Refuted a student.

“Don’t become a School of Medicine. Nobody puts a Civil Engineer intern to supervise ONLY the construction of a bridge. No career puts an intern to be 24 HOURS X 6 DAYS A WEEK AWAY FROM ALL SOCIAL CONTACT OTHER THAN HIS JOB “, reproached another of the nonconformists.

And he assured that the deceased doctor asked for help and “they told him to stay.”

Last April, the Faculty of Medicine came into conflict with its interns after seven of them filed a claim for protection for having been dropped from the school for refusing to return to the institutions to which they had been assigned due to the lack of security guarantees to reduce the risk of contracting covid-19.

the reminder of ministers to schools after class closings, “deviating from protocol can have detrimental effects”

Since the start of the school year, several cases of coronavirus contamination have been observed in a series of schools in the Wallonia-Brussels Federation, both among students and among supervisors. Caroline Désir, Minister of Education, and Bénédicte Linard, Minister of Health, wanted to reframe schools on the rules for class closures.

“Class closures have been observed in several schools since the start of the school year, in different areas of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation”, they write in a joint statement. The ministers wish to ensure “the proportionate management of these situations with regard to the ONE protocol concerning Covid-19 cases and contacts”. “As a reminder, this protocol was updated by ONE in close collaboration with the competent regional health authorities (AVIQ / COCOM) following the new scientific recommendations made by the Risk Assessment Group (RAG) published on August 14 on the Sciensano site, ”the statement continued.

The protocol thus recommends the automatic quarantine of an entire class if, and only if: a supervisor is positive in kindergarten.

“In kindergarten, primary and secondary, the closing of a class CAN also be decided after consultation and evaluation of AVIQ or COCOM when the class contains 2 positive cases proven to Covid-19 ”.

Any class closure that does not follow this protocol “may result in students finding themselves in quarantine without health reasons, with detrimental effects on the smooth running of their schooling”, deplore the ministers. They say they are aware “of the unprecedented nature of the health crisis and of the difficulties encountered in the field by school administrators, educational teams and other members of staff, as well as by PES teams”.

“With a view to identifying avenues for strengthening the support provided to them in the management of Covid-19 cases, Ministers Désir and Linard will very quickly meet with representatives of ONE, the Health Promotion services in the School (PSE), the Accueil Temps Libre (ATL) as well as the federations of organizing authorities.

This will involve evaluating the situation on the ground on the basis of the various situations recorded since the start of the school year with regard to the procedures provided for in the protocol and, if necessary, evaluating the system put in place as well as strengthening or re-specifying the communication that has been made. The objective of the Ministers is to avoid as much as possible of class closures when this is not planned in order to guarantee the most normal possible school year for the majority of pupils ”.
