She has always made known the passion to become a medical doctor and gospel singer, Philipa Baafi is certainly on the right to achieving her dreams when she was inducted into Medical and Dental council as Physician Assistant on Thursday, August 3.
In a Facebook post, the Go Higher hitmaker asked her followers to help her thank the Lord for her academic success.
“Family help me THANK THE LORD for a successful Induction into Medical and Dental council as Physician Assistant,” Philipa Baafi posted
During an interview with Fifi Folson on Up-Close in October 2021, Philipa Baafi who is known for songs such as “Megye Me Din”, “I Go Dance” “ Hallelujah” and “Nkwa” said she took time off music to study because she had always wanted to become a medical doctor growing up.
She said although she was far advanced in age, she still wanted to pursue that dream because she believes destiny can be delayed but cannot be denied.
“So I started my dream of becoming a medical doctor. I started with Physician Assistantship, and by the grace of God, I’m done for four years.
“I’m able to consult and do other things except for major surgeries. By next year, I’ll be going to level 300 of Medical School”, Philipa Baafi is reported to have said at the time.
The Medical and Dental Council inducted 400 Physician Assistants to enhance access to quality health care for better outcomes.
The inductees have, however, been put on a provisional register until they have completed their mandatory one-year internship with accredited health facilities.
The three distinct PA groups are medical assistants; community oral health officers and certified registered nurse anesthetists.
The middle level cadre of healthcare providers are expected to examine, prescribe and request for diagnostic tests under the supervision of physicians or surgeons.
