Dr. Neville Fernando, Chairman, South Asian Institute of Technology and Medicine (SAITM) issuing a statement today responded to the Government Medical Officers’ Association (GMOA), the general public and the media of Sri Lanka.
“I am pleased to note that the GMOA has accepted the solution of the Government on the issues pertaining to SAITM even with some reservations,” he said.
“Thus, I urge the GMOA to get the children of state medical faculties to continue their lectures and clinical training enabling them to qualify, obtain post graduate training and become consultants as it is the vision of every medical student.”
Dr. Neville Fernando further said, “I have forgotten the last few years and I hope that the GMOA will reciprocate. I will remain content on achieving and establishing the right to freedom of education in Sri Lanka.”
Yesterday the GMOA said it was on-board with the decision made by the government to abolish SAITM and establish a not-for-profit entity instead. It said however it has some reservations – particularly with the not-for-profit to be established instead but said it would consult with the government on the best way forward.
