During a 25 April 1996 telephone interview, a representative of the Embassy of Mozambique embassy in Washington, DC., explained that new doctors are required to practice medicine in rural areas after completing six years of university.
Corroborating information on the above-mentioned topic could not be found among the sources consulted by the DIRB.
This Response was prepared after researching publicly accessible information currently available to the DIRB within time constraints. This Response is not, and does not purport to be, conclusive as to the merit of any particular claim to refugee status or asylum.
