Demand for SMC upgrade
Karachi: A group of the Sindh Medical College (SMC)
alumni from Pakistan and North America expressing dissatisfaction over
the quality of education and training being imparted to students at the
college has highlighted the need to upgrade its status to a university.
The alumni said that theirs was not a politically-motivated group and
that they simply wanted to get the education standards improved at the
college through its transformation into a university at its present site
while utilising the force of doctors and infrastructures already
available with its adjacent federally-run institution, the Jinnah
Postgraduate Medical Centre (JPMC).
They noted that the JPMC would finally be devolved to the Sindh
government in the spirit of the 18th amendment in the constitution of
These views were expressed by Dr Jawaid Suleman, Prof Saeed Akhtar, Dr
Qaiser Sajjad and Prof Nusrat Anis while addressing a press conference
The alumni said the proposed establishment of the Sindh Medical
University should not be compared with the proposed Lyari University
project that could not be materialised even after two years of the
presidential announcement to this effect. They added that the SMC was
established in 1973 and so far had produced over 32 batches of 10,000
The SMC, which is currently being governed by the Dow University of
Health Sciences (DUHS), was never a constituent of the Dow Medical
College, they argued, recalling that the SMC was founded as an
independent medical college affiliated to Karachi University just like
"The SMC was in fact taken over by the DUHS despite protests by
SMCians," the alumni said, adding that the SMC students were still being
taught by JPMC doctors and not by the DUHS faculty and as such the
creation of the SMU would not result in any curtailment of DUHS units.
Admitting for the first time before the media that the alumni were
struggling for the upgrading of the SMC and had approached the president
in this regard, the alumni said that they failed to understand why
certain quarters were raising concerns over the related development.
"No hue and cry was raised by the DUHS when the Lyari University
project was announced, despite the fact that the Lyari General Hospital
formed part of the DUHS," one of the speakers argued.
About the concerns of the JPMC's administrative and academic staff
reported in the media, Dr Suleman said that these were ill founded,
because "the academic council of the JPMC has already submitted their
proposal of becoming part of the SMC and the resolution is lying in the
He said that his group without any political or ethnic prejudice was
sincerely working for the addition of a quality medical education centre
and the relevant quarters should facilitate the efforts in this regard
instead of sabotaging them.
"We intend to bring money from the Sindh Medical College Alumni
Association of North America for an improved and technically sound SMU,"
said Prof Saeed Akhtar. He added that they would ensure continued
meaningful academic activities and development in the proposed
university and the alumni would be part of its syndicate for the
Responding to a question, an alumnus said that despite the fact that
the alumni would invest a huge amount in the development of the proposed
university, tuition fee would not be enhanced even in the case of new
admissions. "We will ensure that the fee structure remained on a par
with what the public-sector medical colleges/universities charge or will
charge in future," he added.
The speakers also mentioned that the DUHS batches currently studying at the SMC would not be disturbed in any way.
According to Dr Suleman, the SMC should also be accorded a university
status particularly when all government medical colleges which were
established during the Bhutto era and private colleges had been given a
