Governor assures DDC graduates of registering with PMDC
KARACHI: Sindh Governor Imran Ismail on Friday gave assurance to take the matter of registration of Dow Dental College (DDC) graduates with Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC).
He was speaking at the inaugural ceremony of “4th All Pakistan DUHS-DICE Health Innovation Exhibition 2018” at Expo Centre Karachi. He said it was a matter of concern that DDC graduates had not yet been registered with PMDC, as doctors who spent four years for getting education and one year for house job were yet to register with PMDC.
“I will take the matter with President of Pakistan who is ex-student of the same college and belongs to the same profession, he added. He assured the graduates that they would be shortly registered with PMDC and would be able to work as professional very soon.
He further said: “Dow University of Health Sciences is one of the biggest institutions in the country and it is a matter of surprising that two dental institution of DUHS are not registered with the council. It will be a big loss for whole nation if these dental institutions will cease to work.”
Earlier, when Governor Sindh arrived at Expo Centre, a large number of DDC graduates, students and their parents welcomed him with their demand banners and play cards.
The governor immediately turned to the protesters and asked their problem.
