Islamabad candidates allowed admission in Punjab medical universities

Islamabad : After protests against the new policy, the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC) has allowed students from Islamabad Capital Territory to apply for admission to government medical and dental colleges in Punjab as per the last year’s admission policy.

In a letter issued by its registrar, the PMDC said there were desperate complaints from Islamabad’s students, who had appeared in the MDCAT test held by the University of Health Sciences, Lahore, about the seats in Punjab medical and dental colleges.

It said there was no change in the regulations for MBBS and BDS admissions, house job and internships between 2018 and 2019 and that the University of Health Sciences, Lahore, would continue with admissions in MBBS and BDS courses as per the guidance issued in 2018.

The PMDC said the University of Health Sciences, Lahore, should take immediate necessary steps according to the existing MBBS/BDS admission policy for the students, who sat the MDCAT 2019 test conducted by it.
