The Chairman of the South Asian Institute of Technology and Medicine (SAITM) Dr Neville Fernando says he hopes the Government Medical Officers’ Association (GMOA) will ensure students of state medical faculties resume their lectures.
He said this in response to a statement made by the GMOA with regards to the Government decision taken on SAITM.
Students of state medical faculties have been protesting over the past several months against SAITM.
“I am pleased to note that the GMOA has accepted the solution of the Government on the issues pertaining to SAITM even with some reservations. Thus, I urge the GMOA to get the children of state medical faculties to continue their lectures and clinical training enabling them to qualify, obtain post graduate training and become consultants as it is the vision of every medical student,” Dr. Neville Fernando said.
Dr. Neville Fernando further said “I have forgotten the last few years and I hope that the GMOA will reciprocate. I will remain content on achieving and establishing the right to freedom of education in Sri Lanka.” (Colombo Gazette)
