Medical graduates from China challenge PMDC decision
Islamabad: Thirty-five doctors who had graduated from Chinese medical universities have challenged before the Islamabad High Court (IHC) the decision of Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC) with regard to not registering foreign medical graduates without taking an examination.
Justice Riaz Ahmed Khan of the IHC here on Monday issued notices to the PMDC seeking explanation in this matter. Legal counsel of the petitioners Barrister Masroor Shah apprised the court that the petitioners took admission in Xi'an Jiaotong University of China in 2008 after obtaining NOC to this effect from the PMDC. While the petitioners were studying for the MBBS degrees, the PMDC changed its policy pertaining to the registration of these graduates as registered medical practitioners (RMPs). Under the new policy, the MBBS graduates of foreign universities who are enrolled after April 3, 2011, were required to appear in the PMDC's National Examination Board (NEB) Examinations in order to qualify as a RMP in Pakistan.
Barrister Masroor Shah argued that the said policy enunciated in most categorical terms that it shall not apply retrospectively and students enrolled in MBBS degree programme prior to April 3, 2011, were exempted from taking the examination. However, in 2013, when the petitioners returned to Pakistan with MBBS degrees, PMDC has now taken a U-turn by applying the policy retrospectively and required the petitioners to take the NEB examinations first before they are registered as practicing doctors.
The counsel of the petitioner further argued that PMDC, being a public authority regulating medical education and profession in Pakistan in terms of PMDC Ordinance 1962, is bound to act in accordance with the law.
Barrister Masroor Shah submitted that the said decision of PMDC is against the well-settled doctrine of Locus Poenitentiae, which ordains that a benefit once extended by the state to a person cannot be taken back, particularly when it has been detrimentally acted upon by the citizen. Therefore, PMDC now cannot go back on its words on its own whims and caprices. The counsel said that the petitioners cannot be deprived of their lawful rights on part of PMDC without any cause or justification. After hearing the arguments, Justice Riaz Ahmed Khan issued notice to the PMDC seeking report and para-wise comments within a fortnight. The news
