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
