    See US, Russia, China, India, Bangladesh and Nepal, they all have non state universities. Government resposibility is assure the quality of education through qualification of applicant, well qualified lecturers, minimum facilities for produce quality graduates. My idea is MPMC should be allow to functioning. SLMC and GMOA can give their recongniztion speretely. My personal opinion is MPMC should first focus on other faculties such as law, management ect first. Now, it should operate foreign university branch of Russian university. Qualifation awarding system of SLMCshould be change. If MBBS degree contain more than 3 years foreign university stay and balance in local institute should consider as foreign degree. Then Graguate should have to pass 16 Act exam. Further,Government should introduce new exams for all non-state university graduates of Sri lanka (example China has national exam for entering master degree). Then many problem have solve.

    Think this type of thing with national interest. we are Sri Lankan, completely destroyed the terrorism from our island, have to think wisely with the global situation. Most of 3rd world countries have started private medical colleges in their countries not only produce more doctors but to earn foreign currencies. Also they have stopped foreign exchange out from their countries by way of educational needs. If a person willing to spend Rs. 6.5m here, can easily send their child to Bangladesh, Nepal or China to have MBBS & after, doing Act 16, can practice Sri Lanka. It's happening every year. If Private medical colleges start here, student agents(who publishing paper notices) cannot make money as commission approx. Rs. 175,000 from one student. The so-called communists not thinking that they are helping western countries by way of disturbing this colleges as the people who can afford sending their children to western countries to "buy" MBBS. . Thanks

    Some people says it's a boutique where selling MBBS but think how much government spent to produce one child to become a doctor.More than the said amount considering the admin expenses, salaries, hostels, lab equipments, land & building maintenance, etc.. Wise people should think twice Thanks

    Go GMO go until says YES. Otherwise this will be the beginning of the end of the free higher education in Sri Lanka.

    Managala Wednesday, 07 September 2011 11:59 AM

    Ultimately poor patients who spend their money for these doctors education going to suffer.......

    Whats Wrong ? Thursday, 08 September 2011 04:34 AM

    It's ridiculous! What is wrong in having private medical colleges in Sri Lanka? I am sure there will be a strict selection criteria (on the A/L results) other than paying money to become doctor through these colleges.
    What I can see is that the Govt. is unable to financially support for more medical college simply because of the high costs involved form setting up to maintaining them.
    So, 1. why not give a chance to those who could afford to?
    and 2. make sure these colleges are regulated with strict conditions to meet the respective standards.

    Look at the other sectors - how many thousands who did not get a chance to enter the University systems have become IT , Accounting, Management, Engineering professionals by pursuing private qualifications. And they are contributing significantly to the country and it's economy.

    This is ABSURD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Private Medical School should a GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    GMOA should giveup their objection ASAP.

    With heart Thursday, 08 September 2011 06:46 AM

    Let your bright children to compete with others in healthy manner in national exam to enter university rather than bying MBBS certificate for your hardly earned / black money.

    francis Thursday, 08 September 2011 08:05 AM

    We should not allow the GMOA to dictate on plocy issues. There should absolutely be no problems in setting up private universities in the country which will foster and promote a very sound educational system. It will also create a sort of competitiveness among the universities to do better.
