Students who passed out with a degree from Malabe private medical school have completed qualifications to get registered with Sri Lanka Medical Council says the Minister of Higher Education S.B. Dissanayaka.
The Minister has given this certificate at a press conference held on the 26th on the basis that a reaching hospital for clinical training is available for the students at present. The Minister has further said that several main private hospitals in Colombo extend this clinical training facility to students at the Malabe medical school.
When completing eligibility to practice as a doctor in Sri Lanka and get registered with the Sri Lanka Medical Council it is necessary to pass written and practical examinations. It is compulsory for even those who come with foreign qualifications. However, students who pass out of this medical school have not completed this qualification.
As such, the government unsuccessfully pressurized the Medical Council on several occasions to register graduates from the private school and the pressurizing process is still going on. In such an environment the Minister of Higher Education is attempting to get registration for graduates passing out from the medical school without getting them to go through the proper process reveals his statement.
