What to Do About Such High Fees of Private Medical Colleges?
Salam to all.
I really want to raise an issue regarding the absurdly high fee of private medical colleges. Why doesnt anyone do anything about it???
3.1 million is A LOT of money!
Why in the world were private med colleges allowed to raise their already VERY high fee by 20% this year? what exactly is the logic behind this???
We come from average families. Most of us cannot afford such high fees easily. Merit is not seen here...ONLY MONEY!
do you think its fair to pay MILLIONS of dollars to these medical colleges? Its not our fault that there is a very limited number of government medical college seats.
I really really want to raise my voice but i don't know how. suggestions etc are welcomed.November 18th, 2012, 01:24 AM #2
I am with you bkn . infact we are with you. This is a clear injustice. i think we should file a case against them or a group of students should meet chief justice of Pakistan. U cant change anything in this country unless you come on roads and protest ! just like the one done by first year students last year .November 18th, 2012, 01:44 AM #3
we can do this absolutely....as students of sheikh khalifa bin zaid along wid their chancellor did the same thing and now the fee there is only 2 lakhs per yearNovember 18th, 2012, 01:56 AM #4November 18th, 2012, 01:59 AM #5November 18th, 2012, 02:06 AM #6

And we should do . they r damn suckin leeches . they suck our money. believe me they are earning haraam moneyNovember 18th, 2012, 10:03 AM #8
Your issue is worth discussing bkn...
these people really dont care about a hard working student who wishes to be a doctor and has potential too but due to financial problems cant afford such huge amount
they only want to fullfill there pockets...money is not issue for some parents but for some it is the matter of their whole life savings and assets...
by giving admission to low merit students on donation basis these authorities are ruining the health sector here and also its injustice with many...and its every where no pvt college can say that its totally "pak saaf"...
cmh fmh shalamr lmdc akhtrsaed sheikhzed every college is involved in this butcher kind of system
there are 2 gals of my father's very close friend...both of them have supplies in their intermediate exam in lahore board...but now one of them is studying mbbs and other bds from sindh.. Just because that uncle gave heavy donations there.*.fuel your desires.*.November 18th, 2012, 10:25 AM #9
I wouldn't include Shalamar with other colleges. At least they have a merit cum need based scholarship system from 55% of their students take advantage. When asked, these colleges always have the excuse of keeping the highest fees to keep themselves in the competition, in the business market. Yes folks, it's a business, not education. God have mercy on our souls."Amat Victoria Curam"'Good judgement' comes from 'Experience', and a lot of that comes from 'Bad judgement'.November 18th, 2012, 10:34 AM #10
Yeah the whole Pakistan is with you. I met a doctor at Shifa and he says the college earns 30+ crore every year from student fees and their total salaries are 12 crore. So they make a profit of around 18 crore. Who even needs that much money? If they could just bring it down from 6 lakhs to 3 lakhs, they would still make 3 crore profits every year and would help the students a lot! Great to know Sheikh Zayed has done it, I hope they all follow. The maximum allowed I think should be 4 lakhs and this should be enforced by the government. The country's not that rich other than the elite who can afford anything comfortably!November 18th, 2012, 10:36 AM #11

now of course we dont need zakat Alhumdullilah but we are no billionaires as well. we need the fees to be around 3 lacs.TO ALL:
should we make a face book page or something? I need people to be with me and guide me because I'm really mad now. Who the hell gave PMDC the right to increase fee every couple of years???!!!

Guys, I'm not exactly sure about this, but I remember I got this info that the fee increase this year was on the direct orders of none other than PMDC. So you have to raise a voice against PMDC not the colleges. Thought I'd mention it.November 18th, 2012, 11:19 AM #14November 18th, 2012, 11:19 AM #15November 18th, 2012, 11:21 AM #16November 18th, 2012, 11:22 AM #17November 18th, 2012, 11:22 AM #18November 18th, 2012, 02:09 PM #19
Beside fees structure there is another problems of most colleges that do not disclose their merit by displaying merit list...in this way they cross the 10% overseas seats..approx they take 20% overseas...then seats on donation which is now modern name of bribery..we hve to fave strange conditions in these colgs for seeking admission now..November 18th, 2012, 02:41 PM #20
Alright, "causes.com" it is. Tell me if this is good:
Title: Petition against the highly unaffordable Fees for Private Medical Colleges in Pakistan
Who you want to petition: Pakistan Medical and Dental Council
And give me suggestions for these:
1)- Letter: Keep it short
3)- How many people should sign:
4)- If someone could upload a relevant picture:
I doubt this will work but it's worth a try!
Give me all the suggestions and I'll have all of this ready by tomorrow morning. After launching, just tell everyone you know on Facebook, reality, this forum etc. to sign the petition (of course sign it yourself too), and hopefully get the message to the PMDC.
