    Where should the doctors come from? The problem is that, in addition to intelligence, it takes years of qualified training to become a doctor, on the contrary, to become a politician, which anyone can become, even a prepubescent village idiot.

    Interns can save 40 hospitals for sure. Can they save lives?

    There must be senior Doctors too to supervise the interns

    Saving Hospital at, Expense of Patients

    Allow Sri Lankan graduate doctors, who now have foreign citizenship, to come and register and work without obtaining dual nationality. After all, there are members of parliament who have no dual nationality, contested and sitting in our parliament.

    Wait for the tax year to finish and majority of the doctors who moved away to western countries will return when they realise they can save more back home while living a very comfortable life. Especially with their private practices.

    Approximately 60 percent of the patients have mild complaints and interns are a good option. In the good old days the Apothecaries examined and treated patients and I always go to them. The present population choose the most expensive doctor for prestige.

    Always assess a Doctor on his track record. A common myth is going by the highest consulting fee. Higher the fee better the doctor.

    A couple of months ago around 8 students were deprived of internship as SLMC claimed they have taken a break in SL during covid. Around Rs.4 Million was paid a well known Attorney suggested by SLMC to merely put forward a court solution. Even worse subsequent to such solution further 8 scholars were unreasonably refused internship even though they continued to stay and perform in Russia and had to pay Rs.1.6 Million for a mere submission by a another leading Attorney as suggested by SLMC. Isn;t it funny now you are stating no sufficient Doctors?. Why were such large sums demanded when ethicket of SC suggest reasonable fees for performance. Did the spoil was shared with persons ?.
