Dr. Gandao who is a senior gynaecologist at the Tamale teaching hospital and a clinical coordinator for the UDS medical school Speaking Exclusively to Gabriel Mwini of Radio Progress on Tuesday disclosed that, he chose to serve in the teaching hospital in the north because, he wanted to help teach more medical students at the University for Development Studies medical school who will serve in the three regions in the north after their studies in order to reduce the patients doctor ratio in the three regions in northern Ghana.

According to Dr. Gadao, some of the students he taught medicine at the UDS medical school are now serving in the Upper West Region, and wonders why some people are saying he is not committed to serve in the region.
