    Why is it that no Bermudian is qualified for the role of Chief Medical Officer?

    We used to have Bermudians in that role.

      I suspect that it is not that Bermudians are unqualified, Bermudians just do not want that position for some reason. His predecessor Dr. Oyinloye, was not Bermudian.

  2. I'm just saying says:

    Where do they find these people?

    • Hilarious! says:

      The Acting Chief Medical Officer took a job no Bermudian wanted and is now the Chief Medical Officer.
