Private medical colleges ripping students off millions
by ? Wed Sep 07, 2011 8:39 pm
The Pakistan Medical Association (PMA) has alleged that public medical colleges in Sindh unnecessarily delayed their admissions in MBBS and BDS programmes so that private medical colleges could be benefited.
?All that is happening right under the nose of PMDC, where private medical colleges are earning millions and millions of rupees in the name of admission forms, pre-admission tests, exorbitant admission and tuition fees and donations? The PMA?s office-bearers Dr Sher Shah Syed and Dr Habib-ur-Rahman Soomro said at a press conference at the Karachi Press Club (KPC) on Tuesday.
They once again demanded of the government to make Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC) an independent and highly-powered institution to improve the level of medical and dental education in the country and check the irregularities committed by the medical educational institutes. PMA leaders Dr Sher Shah Syed and Dr Habib-ur-Rahman Soomro alleged that currently the PMDC was playing into the hands of owners of some private medical colleges, who are using the PMDC for increasing their profits by offering sub-standard medical education.
?Some businessmen, who have entered into the profession of medical education, want to earn more profits and are using the platform of the PMDC for acquiring the permission to start evening medical colleges in the country? they charged.
They said PMA had time and again opposed the ?unique idea? of evening medical colleges, as it would further deteriorate the medical education in the country and would produce doctors who have little knowledge as to how and what kind of treatment should be given to patients in life-threatening situations.
The PMA office-bearers maintained that nowhere in the world was any college was functioning that imparted medical education in two shifts especially when most of the private medical colleges didn?t even have the complete faculty to impart medical education in the day to students.
They further charged that private medical colleges not only lack qualified faculty and other necessary facilities to impart medical education but they also make false claims about their full-time faculty and facilities.
?It is also the responsibility of the parents also to ascertain that the medical colleges, where they are going to get their children admitted for education, really have the full-time faculty and other facilities that were mentioned in the prospectus or not? the advised the parents.
They strongly criticized the present administration of the PMDC and charging that it was fulfilling the agenda of some businessmen in the garb of educationists, urged the government to take stock of the irregularities in the medical educational sector.
