Closure of private medical college irks parents in Peshawar

Peshawar: Parents of FSc students have expressed severe concern over the closure of Jinnah Institute of Medical Sciences, Peshawar despite the fact that the college has removed the deficiencies so far identified by the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council in its last year¢s inspection. In a press release a joint committee of the parents of the FSc students who were denied admission in the government medical colleges stated that more than 60,000 students have cleared their FSc examination in NWFP and the government medical colleges were accommodating only 1000 students.

The parents regretted that there were already very few medical colleges in the Frontier and the students getting high marks in their FSc exam and would be deprived of getting admission in the MBBS. They said this trend would lead to suicide attempts by the frustrated students and the government should encourage the private medical institutions. It is heartening to say that in the government colleges even candidates getting more than 900/1100 marks have failed to get medical seat, they added. The committee regretted that in Pakistan when the private investors are invited to invest in the developmental initiatives, they are promised best incentives in the beginning but later due to political mess and the matter of like and dislike discourage the investors and the new entrants avoid to launch their projects thus giving serious setback to the economic stability of the nation. It said the same was the case with the Jinnah Institute of Medical Sciences, Peshawar NWFP where the owners were now repenting their mistake to invest in the private sector.

It may be recalled that the institute was registered with the Peshawar University and the Higher Education Regulatory Authorities (HERA) had also recognized it. When the institute applied for recognition with the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council, Islamabad, it refused to recognize it mentioning certain deficiencies in the existing laboratories and attached teaching hospital. The management of the institute was removing the deficiencies but some political representatives of the MMA government intervened in the matter and persuaded the authorities to close down the institute thus giving serious setback to the investors who had spent billions of rupees on the project. Now when the management has removed the deficiencies so far identified by the PM&DC and was also ready to made all the required payments. It is injustice with the management of the JMIS not to recognize it. The parents have demanded of the PM&DC to allow the college to reopen and start admissions and finalize the recognition process in due course to save the students from further frustration. F.P.
