May 13, 2016-

The Association of Private Medical and Dental Colleges of Nepal has expressed its reservation over the final draft of the amended bill on National Medical Education Act submitted by Health Profession Education Commission (HPEC) to PM KP Oli on Thursday.

Issuing a statement on Friday, the Association claimed that most of the points in the bill should be reviewed. The Association claims that Nepali students will be deprived of their birth right to study in the country, if the final draft of the bill is not revised.

“The regressive draft that promotes closure of domestic medical colleges and encourages foreign medical colleges in the country is not acceptable to us,” said Association’s President Dr. Bhola Rijal in the statement.
