Government of Sindh has decided to establish its own Sindh Medical and Dental Council SMDC. Setting up of provincial Medical and dental council may cause problems for standardizing the medical education and practice regulations. However the decision has been made.
Sindh Health Minister Dr Azra Fazal Pechuho announced the provincial government’s decision to establish Sindh Medical and Dental Council (SMDC), during a press conference at Sindh secretariat on Wednesday.
Due to ongoing issues with dissolution of Pakistan Medical and Dental Council, PMDC and setting up of Pakistan Medical Council, a number of problems are raised. Dr Azra criticized the Federal Government's decision for setting up Pakistan Medical Council. She said that dissolution of Pakistan Medical and Dental council has caused numerous problems for Doctors and Medical students in the country.
The provincial minister informed the media that the bill for the approval of setting up the SMDC will soon be presented in the assembly.
