PMA calls for separate medical colleges for boys
Karachi, Aug 23: The president of the Pakistan Medical Association's (PMA) Karachi chapter, Dr.Idrees Adhi on Wednesday stressed the need for establishing separate medical colleges for the boys of the country.

Adhi made this statement while addressing a hurriedly called press conference at the PMA House.

He said there were 130 dental and medical colleges all over the country, out of which six were especially allocated for female students. The rest of the 124 medical colleges imparting education to the students were getting admissions on open merit, according to the decision taken by the Supreme Court of Pakistan in 1991, he added.

He said almost 75 per cent of female students were getting admitted to both private and public medical colleges. This resulted in an acute shortage and dearth of male doctors in the country, he added.
