* Sri Lanka university teachers warn of action against new regulation on private medical colleges
Sun, Feb 9, 2014, 12:56 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 09, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Federation of University Teachers' Associations (FUTA) says that stern action would be taken against the government decision to remove the condition of approval of the Sri Lanka Medical Council for the degrees offered by the private medical colleges.

FUTA said that the issue would be discussed with the doctors' trade unions. Accordingly, a discussion is expected to be held with the Government Medical Officers' Association (GMOA).

FUTA has already sent a letter to the Sri Lanka Medical Council protesting the government action.

The union urged the Sri Lanka Medical Council to seriously consider this matter and take all necessary and appropriate actions to challenge the amendment and to protect the standards of medical education in this country.

"We pledge our fullest support to the Council in this regard as part of our efforts to protect the standards and quality of state education in Sri Lanka," FUTA said.

The relevant amendment was brought by the Ministry of Higher Education. The previous condition of Sri Lanka Medical Council approval for offering medical degrees in Sri Lanka has been removed now.
