Cuban scholarships | Khyber Medical College boycott

Cuban scholarships: WHO-registered medical courses recognised by PMDC
Islamabad, May 27, 2008: Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC) approves only those medical/dental courses, which are registered with World Health Organisation (WHO), PMDC President Prof Dr Syed Sibitul Hasnain said on Monday.

He said the Cuban MBBS programme had certain shortcomings and once they were removed, the PMDC would have no objections to the degrees obtained by Pakistanis from there. "Some Cuban medical/dental courses are not listed in the WHO directory," said Hasnain.

In a recent meeting, the PMDC sought from the Cuban government and the Higher Education Commission (HEC) update on medical teaching facilities and health infrastructure of the South American island.

After acquiring a complete list of faculty members and their qualification and experience, the PMDC and the HEC would send to Cuba a team of experts, including representative of the Health Ministry, to judge the standard of medical education, Hasnain said.

He said the PMDC could not compromise on quality of medical/dental education as quality education means quality healthcare. He said the issue of Cuban degrees would be resolved amicably.

In the light of recommendations of the team, the PMDC would decide whether or not to recognise Cuban MBBS degrees, he said. It was also decided in the meeting that the PMDC would supply supplementary curriculum contents to Pakistani students in Cuba to train them for the PMDC National Board Examination.

Like graduates of other foreign medical/dental colleges, these students will have to pass the examination for practise in Pakistan. The PMDC executive committee, Hasnain said, had urged the Cuban government to explore the possibility of shifting Pakistani students to top medical institutions.

The HEC and the PMDC have so far held many meetings on the issues but the controversy remains unresolved. A PMDC team, comprising Prof Dr Masood Hameed and Prof Dr Abdul Malik, had earlier visited Cuba to find that medical education facilities, health care and even accommodation was below standards there.

The team then recommended that the case of sending another batch of students to Cuba be reviewed. On the contrary, the HEC is of the view the Cuban medical education is globally accepted and that it obtained NOC from the PMDC before sending students to the island.

Background: The Cuban government offered 1,000 MBBS scholarships to Pakistan after 2005 earthquake and 350 students are currently studying in Cuba on scholarship. The remaining 650 students have been awaiting departure for many months. Daily Times

HEC Social Sciences committees review initiatives
Islamabad: The Higher Education Commission's (HEC) Sub-Committees on Education, Urdu/Regional Languages and Psychology held a series of meetings at the Social Sciences Secretariat, HEC.

The main objective of the meetings was to provide recommendations, and review faculty and institutional development and promotion of research culture in these subjects. The sub-committees discussed in detail different issues related to HEC approved supervisors, HEC recognised journals, research grants and national and international linkages, and suggested certain recommendations for promoting teaching and research in these disciplines. The committee members lauded the efforts of HEC for initiating a number of programmes to strengthen Social Sciences and Humanities in the universities of Pakistan.

The meeting of Sub-committee on Education was presided over by Prof Dr Ahmed Farooq Mashadi, Chairman Department of Education, Bahauddin Zakariya University, Multan while Prof Fateh Muhammad Malik, President National Language Authority, Islamabad and Dr Najma Najam, Professor Department of Psychology, University of the Punjab, Lahore presided over the meetings of Sub-committees on Urdu/Regional Languages and Psychology respectively.

Prof Dr Riaz-ul-Haq Tariq, Member Academics HEC, represented the Commission in these meetings and apprised the participants about the ongoing initiatives of HEC to promote Social Sciences and Humanities.

He asked members of the three sub-committees to play a pivotal role for the promotion of research and teaching in these disciplines. He assured that HEC would welcome new ideas and suggestions in strengthening Social Sciences and Humanities. In its meeting, the Sub-committee on Education approved four applicants as HEC approved supervisor besides approving a 'Bulletin of Education and Research' in 'Z' category. It was decided that all applications of the HEC approved supervisor and HEC recognised journals in the discipline of Education would be submitted online to HEC.

KMC students boycott classes, hold demonstrations
Peshawar: To protest the mass departure of senior faculty members and feared de-recognition of the NWFP's prime medical institute - Khyber Medical College Peshawar - the students Monday boycotted their classes and staged demonstration on and outside the campus, pressing the government to revive Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC) rules in medical colleges.

The protesting students were of the opinion that it was due to the replacement of PMDC rules with those of HEC that the promotions of the senior faculty were hampered and they were compelled to leave the KMC for better options. This has not only created unrest among the students and teachers but also put the KMC on the verge of de-recognition. The unanimous demand of the students was that the government should immediately intervene in the matter and save their future.

Led by Ashfaq Afridi, Secretary KMC Literary Society, the students gathered on the main lawn of the college under the aegis of Students Action Committee. They chanted slogans against the new criteria. They were also holding placards inscribed with slogans demanding of the government to save the KMC. The students after arranging a well-attended show on the premises of the college marched to the press club and staged a big protest demonstration there.

Afterwards, they walked up to the Governor House where they staged another demo. A five-member delegation of the students went inside the Governor House and met some senior officials there who assured them that they would soon arrange their meeting with the governor. The students also submitted a charter of demands to the governor.

Students said due to the stoppage of the promotion under the new rules applied to the college through Khyber Medical University, as many as 20 teachers had left the college and more were about to. They said it was a major blow to the college and urged the government to immediately take effective measures to stop departure of the senior faculty members and thus save the future of medical students in the province.
