In a series of tweets, JFC stated that a full analysis is needed to determine the factors that led to the announcement that the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) accreditation will expire next year.
“The Financial Control Board provided all funding for the ASEM (Medical Center) in line with government budget requirements and approved all additional funding needed for neurological equipment and other needs, including $ 8 million in fiscal year 2020. ASEM has an additional capital expenditure of $ 50 million by 2020 and In fiscal 2021, it will only spend $ 1 million, ”JCF said in a series of tweets.
