PMDC & MBBS duration | BZU Sahiwal sub-campus

No PMDC law to change course duration: MBBS programme Rawalpindi, April 12, 2008: Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Friday observed that the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC) had no provision for changing the duration of MBBS programme.

The observation of Justice Syed Qalb-i-Hassan of the IHC came during the hearing of a writ petition filed by a student of Shifa College of Medicine.

Ghufran Khursheed Imtiazi, the counsel for petitioner Aftab Aslam, a student of second professional MBBS, said the college had formulated a rule under which if any MBBS student failed to complete the course within seven years he cannot continue his education. However, the lawyer said, there was no such law prescribed by the PMDC which governed all public and private medical institutes. The petitioner moved the court against the college administration for not allowing him to take his second professional examination.

The court had sought the comments of respondents in the case - ministries of health, law; PMDC, Bahria University and Shifa College. On Friday, the university was directed to submit its comments through its director examinations on Monday. The hearing was adjourned till April 14.

Master plan for BZU Sahiwal sub-campus
Sahiwal: The National Engineering Services of Pakistan (Private) Limited has approved the master plan for the construction of the Bahauddin Zakariya University's sub-campus in Sahiwal. The groundbreaking ceremony is likely to be held in a month's time.

The master plan has been submitted to the BZU vice-chancellor for final approval and starting the construction work on the project, learnt on Friday.

This sub-campus will be constructed over 57.97 acres in front of the Government College, Sahiwal, and will cater to 2,750 master's and undergraduate students in 24 disciplines upon its completion in a three-year time.

According to sources, the federal government had already approved Rs478.87 million for the campus construction while the varsity administration was aspiring for another Rs500 million from the provincial government.

In 2005, the BZU had opened its sub-campus on the premises of the Government College, Sahiwal, by taking 24 acres under a three-year lease agreement. Initially, as many as 150 students got admission in three disciplines, MBA, MBA (Executive) and BBA (Honours), and this development helped many students of Sahiwal and suburbs, especially girls, get higher education at their doorstep. Prior to this, they had to travel to Multan or Lahore for this purpose.

"Parents feel comfortable in sending their girls in institutes of advance learning, preferably in the same city. Had this sub-campus not existed, I could not have gotten my higher education," Hamna, a BBA student, said.

Presently, around 570 students are studying at the sub-campus offering six disciplines, including Master's in Applied Psychology, English and Economics.

The BZU administration has also sanctioned a university bus for the sub-campus to pick and drop students, reducing the travelling problems of many, especially the girls. The new purpose-built campus will house an academic block, hostels for students and teachers, swimming pool, tennis and basketball courts.

Besides, it will have central library, conference hall, computer centre, gymnasium, student service centre, cricket ground, faculty residences and a cafeteria.

"The groundbreaking ceremony will be held very soon. I assure the people of Sahiwal that upon its completion, the sub-campus will emerge as a centre of excellence," Project Director Dr Muhammad Saleem Bhutto said. Dawn
