Myanmar is doubly ill-served by the PhDs, home-made or acquired at ‘the big universities‘ in the West.

On one hand, Made-in-De-din (i.e., Myanmar) Doctors are a joke of a new genre who now fill university departments.

Just send as many junior experts for training abroad with G to G agreements.

After every few years they would send one group of few (less than half dozen) post graduate training doctors abroad. That was dictated by not depending to the needs of the country but the cronies and children of the top leaders.
