The Grodno State Medical University, in the Republic of Belarus (an eastern European country) intends to open a branch in Sri Lanka; the BelTA news agency reported quoting the university's Rector Viktor Snezhitsky.
A delegation of the Grodno State Medical University is now busy negotiating in Sri Lanka.
“We intend to open a branch of the university's preparatory courses department. The idea will be implemented in 2018 if not in 2017. We are considering hiring local teaching staff. Specialists from Grodno will be sent to Sri Lanka for short-term business trips for the sake of control, performance review, and educational support,” said the rector. If the plans are implemented, Sri Lanka will be the first country with a branch of the Grodno State Medical University of its own. It is a normal practice for many universities. If the project produces the effect the university counts on, the practice will be expanded, noted Viktor Snezhitsky.
The Grodno State Medical University has trained foreign students for more than 20 years. Education services with English as the language of instruction have been available for over 15 years. At present two thirds of foreign students at the Grodno State Medical University are instructed in English during the entire six-year period of education. “Our teachers are ready for it. We constantly recruit more young professionals, who speak foreign languages,” added the rector.
The quality of training of foreign students at the Grodno State Medical University is highly rated; competition among foreign students exceeds two people per place. A roundtable session of the Education, Science, Culture, and Social Development Commission of the Council of the Republic of the National Assembly of Belarus took place at premises of the Grodno State Medical University on 18 April. Ways to improve medical university education and science in Belarus were discussed during the session.

OMG! poor doctor population entire lot of them will be on strike 365 days of the year! Take care! Fort Railway Station and Lipton Circus are going to be very busy. Better we alert our good old veda mahthayas to be on the alert. The truth is our doctors do not want their number to be enhanced by these new universities. They don't want their demand to drop.

Good reason for GMOA to refrain from work, but draw their salaries and work full time in Pvt.hospitals or relax at home leaving poor patients at stake. Another kind of Meethotamulla disaster.
