Fate of MPhil students of KMC hangs in the balance
Peshawar: The fate of the MPhil students of Khyber Medical
College (KMC) hangs in the balance, as Khyber Medical University (KMU),
Peshawar, is reluctant to register them.
KMU Vice-Chancellor Prof Dr
Mohammad Hafizullah is of the opinion that the college should apply for
affiliation of MPhil programme first and their students would be
registered after the colleges were accorded affiliation.
Principal Prof Dr Sultan Mahmood, however, said they were already
affiliated with the university through the University Act and there was
no need for further affiliation. "Resolution of the issue of
registration of the MPhil students is my top priority. KMU should
cooperate with us to resolve the matter," Dr Sultan said.
A total of 40 doctors from various medical institutions
of the province are facing the problem of MPhil registration with KMU.
These doctors have already got admission to KMC and their courses have
been started, the sources said.
When contacted, Prof Dr Mohammad
Hafizullah said that no college had so far applied for affiliation with
KMU for MPhil programme. The KMC and other colleges had applied for
affiliation of their MBBS programme and the university granted them
affiliation after inspecting the institutions, he said. "If they apply
for the MPhil programme, we would have an inspection of their
institutions. And if they fulfil the required criteria, we will grant
them affiliation," he said.
Prof Dr Hafizullah said for affiliation
and registration of the postgraduate students, the university would look
into three things - faculty, infrastructure and whether the students
have taken the National Testing Service (NTS) examination or not.
Sultan Mahmood, on the other hand, said that he had taken up the issue
of the registration of the MPhil students with the KMU authorities. He
said these students were already registered with the University of
Peshawar and their courses had been started. But as they were Act-bound
and had to register their students with the KMU, their registration
should be transferred to KMU. "It is a simple issue. If the university
has some requirements like registration fee, etc, we will happily fulfil
them," he argued.
He said that MPhil programme in KMC was not
something new. "The KMC has been offering MPhil courses since 1999. The
KMC is not an undergraduate institution. It is not necessary for the
institution to get affiliation for its each and every programme," he
said, expressing optimism that the issue would be resolved soon.
principal of the Ayub Medical College, Abbottabad, in a letter
requested the principal of the KMC to process the case of registration
of the Department of Forensic Medicine with KMU for post-graduation as
early as possible.
Referring to one case of Dr Salma Shazia,
lecturer in forensic medicine, he said that she was allowed two-year
deputation for MPhil course in forensic medicine at the KMC with the
understanding that the department was recognised by the KMU for
post-graduation. He further stated that Dr Salma had already passed her
DRE examination with 81.8 per cent marks and started training at KMC for
the last 5-6 months and her career would be affected in case of further
delay in registration of the department. The news
