BDS Students unable to meet required quota
Islamabad: A large number of dentistry students are facing problems
regarding the treatment of patients to meet their prescribed quota in the holy
month of Ramzan, it was learnt.
An exclusive survey revealed that students of almost all the medical dental colleges, both
private and government, were finding it extremely difficult to meet the
requirement for the treatment of particular number of patients, as prescribed by
Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC).
Medical students studying
Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) are being asked to treat a fixed number of
patients under the instructions of PMDC. The students of final year are
subjected to meet the prescribed quota, a necessary requirement for acquiring
their graduation degree.
The number of patients for the quota depends upon
the structure and set-up of dental colleges. Ordinarily, every student of
dentistry has to treat around 80 to 100 patients during the final year.
dental colleges students while talking to this scribe remarked that the medical
treatment that undergraduate students had to carry out included teeth
extraction, teeth filling, cavity preparation and other remedies against tooth
decay adding usually, each student had to attend around 50 patients for tooth
extraction, around 30 patients for filling and almost 20 patients for other
"These are the tentative figures of patient's quota for every
students in the dental colleges of twin cities," observed another
The students further informed that PMDC gave a two months time to
each dental college to get its students meet the settled criteria. Two months
are given to each student for tooth extraction, filling and other treatments
respectively, through out the year, mentioned another student.
during the holy month of Ramzan, the number of patients who intend to visit
dental hospitals is much lesser than expected thus causing problems for
students. "Most of the patients are reluctant to get teeth treatment in Ramzan
since they believe that teeth treatment during fasting tends to break their
fasts," said another student.
Almost every dental college has its own dental
hospital where the students treat the patients and can meet the quota
requirements. But owing to the month of Ramzan, majority of patients believe
that teeth treatment can undo their fasts, which subsequently, has reduced the
number of visitors during fasting hours.
"People are willing to visit dental
hospitals after iftar. But these are off timings for the students who have to
study hard in the evenings amidst fast approaching exams," stated a senior
teacher of a medical college, adding that students could only attend the
patients in their college timings on account of their hectic schedule after
The students also cited lacunae in meeting the patient's quota under current
circumstances, with their exams around the corner. The send-up exams for dental
colleges are to be commenced in the last week of Ramazan. Where as, the quota
deadlines for most of the colleges are going to expire immediately after
Ramazan at the start of October.
"How can we concentrate on our exams when
we have to find maximum number of patients to meet our academic requirements,"
said a student and revealed that students are searching for patients on their
own in order to fulfil the desired requirements.
The students and faculty
members of several dental colleges have demanded of the PMDC and University of
Health Sciences to extend the date of deadline for patient's quota. The deadline
should be extended since students are unable to find sufficient number of
patients in Ramazan, suggested a faculty member of a dental college. "This quota
thing is affecting students' preparations for examination," he
Prominent dentists and surgeons of medical colleges have
emphasised upon the creation of awareness among people about teeth treatment in
the holy month of Ramazan. People need to be educated about the fact that teeth
treatment does not break their fasts since the intake of any nutritious diet can
result in fast breakage while teeth treatment doesn't serve any such purpose,
added a senior dental surgeon. The Nation
