Islamabad, May 16, 2008: Students on the threshold of entering their practical life should prove their worth by acquiring knowledge through hard work and dedication, as this is the 21st century that can rightly be called the 'silent knowledge revolution'.

Khyber Medical College de-recognition by PMDC
Peshawar: Khyber Medical College (KMC) principal Prof Dr Fazle Ahmad Thursday made a passionate appeal to the provincial government to save the institution from being de-recognised by the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC) as its teachers were rapidly leaving the college owing to a host of problems.

"We may suffer a huge loss in case the PMDC de-recognises this prestigious institution," Dr Fazle Ahmad said while speaking at the oath-taking ceremony of Khyber Medical College Teachers Association (KMCTA) on the premises of the college here.

While highlighting the problems faced by the college and its teachers, he had to leave his speech incomplete when he lost control over his emotions and broke down. He said the KMC proved to be a sign of prestige for the NWFP as it has produced around 8,500 graduates, who are serving now in every nook and corner of the world. But it was passing through the critical stage of its history as the teachers were leaving it due to poor salary package and long pending issue of their promotion or up-gradation after the promulgation of the Khyber Medical University (KMU) Act.

Like rest of the college teaching staff, Prof Dr Fazle Ahmad was seriously worried about the future of the institution particularly when senior teachers started quitting their jobs and joined private medical institutions on high salaries and other perks and privileges.

"For God's sake, help us and save this great institution from being de-recognised," he appealed to the provincial health minister and left the rostrum, as he could not continue further.

Later, NWFP health minister Zahir Ali Shah, who arrived almost 45 minutes late of the schedule and made senior doctors and teachers of the college wait, in his speech assured the concerned doctors of his full support in resolving their genuine problems.

"It was and it should be the great learning institution of our province. The KMU Act which created some problems in terms of doctors' promotion needed to be amended," the minister said and added that they would save the premier medical college at all costs.

The minister said he completed homework on health sector and told the doctors they would soon hear good news. The minister, however, said he was not happy with the way the doctors deal their patients. He said during his recent visits, he found that except Ayub Teaching Hospital, Abbottabad, all the tertiary hospitals, including Lady Reading Hospital (LRH), Khyber Teaching Hospital (KTH) and Hayatabad Medical Complex (HMC) were in bad condition and they have almost failed to cope with patients' burden.
