Karachi: The Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC) supports establishment of new medical colleges in the country, including the proposed Shaheed Benazir Bhutto Medical College in the Lyari area of Karachi to meet a shortage of doctors in the country.
PMDC President Prof Sibtul Hasnain Syed said this to journalists at a conference on ‘Building Bridges for Medical Education Reforms” organised by the Dow University of Health Sciences (DUHS) on Saturday.
The professor said the envisaged medical college in the downtrodden area of Lyari would meet the PMDC criteria that include the minimum 60 percent marks for candidates aspiring to seek admission to any medical college in the country.
Similarly, he said, that the college was also on its way to hire services of faculty in basic medical sciences as well as clinical sciences.
The college was already annexed with the Lyari General Hospital manned by senior medical professionals, he noted.
Answering a question, the PMDC president said that the country was exposed to a shortage of medical teachers in basic medical sciences, but different medical universities were in process of producing MPhils and PhDs in those subjects. “The country is self-sufficient in teachers of clinical sciences,”
Replying to another question about members of teaching faculty found simultaneously associated with different medical colleges, the PMDC president said that the trend had been strictly contained through a rule under which all medical teachers were required to seek annual registration with the PMDC.The news
