Still, becoming a government employed doctor did not guarantee that you would get a chance for further study no matter how hardworking you were. Nepotism was rampant at the postgraduate selection committee. Many of my brilliant sayas (young demonstrators) in various medical school departments were bypassed in favor of children of the big shots during the selection process.
