LAHORE: Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC) has failed to notify the registered degree and diploma programmes of public and private sector universities and medical colleges in the 3rd schedule and on its official website, Young Doctors Association (YDA) deplored on Saturday.
The body said that medical colleges and universities were making millions in fees for the PhD, MS, MD, M.Phil and other programmes without prior permission from the PMDC.
The doctors said that the higher education commission (HEC) appeared ignorant of the need for the medical varsities and colleges to have PMDC’s permission before initiating any medical studies programmes.
YDA office bearers Dr Rana Sohail, Dr Salman Kazmi, Dr Talha Sherwani, Dr Ghulam Qasim, Dr Murtaza Bloch, Dr Muhammad Khawar Khan, Dr Shahid Dreshik, Dr Waqas Gondal, Dr Shehzad, Dr Asim, Dr Shams, Dr Muhammad Azhar and Dr Muhammad Amjad demanded strict action against the principals and vice chancellors of the varsities starting programmes without PMDC’s approval. They warned of legal action against the Council, if their demands were not met.
