The Government has decided to bring the Neville Fernando Teaching Hospital which is affiliated to the South Asia Institute of Technology and Management (SAITM) under the purview of the Health Ministry, the Higher Education Ministry said today.

The Government has also decided to conduct a mandatory examination under the joint supervision of the Sri Lanka Medical Council and the University Grants Commission to provide provisional registration for medical graduates who have passed out of SAITM.

The decision was taken in the wake of the Government Medical Officers Association (GMOA) undertaking a token strike demanding the closure or nationalization of SAITM.

The Higher Education Ministry announced that SAITM graduates would be given a further period of clinical training in Surgery, Medicine, Gynecology and Obstetrics, Psychiatry, Paediatrics for one month each in Homagama and Avissawella Hospitals.

The Health Ministry will also gazette the minimum standards required for medical education in Sri Lanka.

    A good decision, but what about the Appeal Court order? That was for the SLMC to grant provisional registration to SAITM graduates. There was no question of sitting for another exam. Will the government be held in contempt of court? Also, what about the pending appeal in the Supreme Court?

    Please maintain this minumum standard for all universities, whether private or State as some state Unis are also suspect of lower standards.

    I think suggestions are very reasonable, but GMOA psychopaths will not be happy unless SAITM is shut down, throw students on to the main road and make them and their parents miserable.

    Looks good.

    If people are not happy with those doctors from SAITM go to another doctor. General hospital doctors are the best and no denying that fact. Allow those whose dream to be a doctor become a reality.No one should place any obstacle in their way. It is practice that makes perfect and they all learn along the way. via DM Android App

    At SAITAM there is only a Medical faculty or are there any other degree programmes??

    truth Friday, 07 April 2017 08:36 PM

    Corporate TAX payers will have an additional burden to finance SAITM.

    Yes give the country back to MR and his joint opposition.

    These doctors are like our those days' harbor workers, even if someone pass wind they will be out on strike.
