SB hits at Medical Council

Daily Mirror, SUNDAY, 24 JUNE 2012 17:32, 

While claiming that it was not necessary to get permission from the Sri Lanka Medical Council (SLMC) to establish the Malabe Private Medical College (MPMC), Higher Education Minister S.B. Dissanayake said arbitrary action that was being taken by the SLMC brought disgrace to the well experienced veteran specialist doctors.

“The SLMC is represented by a few doctors who do not include the reputed and recognised doctors of the country. Arbitrary action being taken by the SLMC brings disgrace to the well experienced veteran specialist doctors. They conduct protests in order to protect their financial advantages and the selfish wishes of these small groups could not be allowed to hinder the education system of the country,” Minister Dissanayake said addressing at a ceremony held in Udunuwara.

He also said the authorities had already finalised all the arrangements for the legal recognition of the MPMC and the “acceptance of degrees offered by the MPMC, despite the protest by some interested parties who are silent when various universities are opened for different fields of studies.” (R.S.
