Return students’ money, GMOA tells SAITM

30 July 2016 07:17 am - 5     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The Government Medical Officers’ Association (GMOA) said the management of the South Asian Institute of Technology and Medicine (SAITM) should return the money of students with interest for the years they had wasted seeking a degree.

While claiming that SAITM had committed a serious financial crime against its students, the GMOA said the continuous backing of politicians had added to the injustice suffered by students.

GMOA Editor Dr. Nalinda Herath said the SAITM students should be repaid their full fees plus compensated for the years they had wasted.

He also proposed that if students having minimum qualifications for entrance to a state university were selected to complete a medical degree from a Sri Lanka Medical Council (SLMC) registered education institute anywhere in the world, the GMOA would not oppose it.

But the expenses for the medical education of the students should be borne by the SAITM management, Dr. Herath said. (Piyumi Fonseka)

    we see this problem in two ways too. one is a mater of quality assurance and the second is self centered GMOA which want to keep monopoly. MC deans agreed to resolve the quality issue through PPP. Then why send them to oversea ? let it to have it within country under proper quality assurance system.

    If you are so worried about the poor patients of this country why don't you comment on astronomical prices doctors charge from the patient, for consultations and for performing operations ?
