The voices for the medical university are growing in Kashmir with DAK repeating the demand on doctor’s day.
DAK said that lack of medical university is a problem for the medical students as the University of Kashmir has its own long list of tasks to complete.
There are a lot of medical institutions including paramedical colleges in Jammu and Kashmir but they are affiliated with Jammu and Kashmir universities.
With the result, all the examinations, their results and awarding the degrees to the doctors are delayed by these two universities.
The DAK President said the medical university would give new direction to the medical curriculum that would change the health care scenario in JK.
“The varsity would provide competent caring physicians through quality undergraduate and postgraduate training that would shape the future of the health care in the region,” he said adding “the quality of nurses and paramedics would also improve through outstanding education that would produce a paradigm change in patient care.”
“The university would provide an environment that is conducive for research which would bring us on the scientific map of the world,” said Dr Nisar.
“It would serve as an international magnet and will attract high quality professionals across the globe to practice, teach and research in an academic medical environment,” he said.
General Secretary DAK Dr Arshad Ali said the medical university would integrate health care system of the valley and bring the health institutions under one umbrella.
“That will provide uniform quality health care to all and improve patient satisfaction and outcome,” he added.
