Govt shuts Shah Makhdum Medical College for violating rules

The government has asked Shah Makhdum Medical College (SMMC) in Rajshahi to shut its operations due to violation of the Private Medical College Installation and Operating rules and regulations.

Simultaneously, instruction has been given to arrange the migration of all the studying students to other private medical colleges under Rajshahi Medical University, reports BSS.

On this issue, the college authority on Thursday has received a government order signed by a Deputy Secretary of the health ministry on November 2. The order has also asked the college authority not to admit any newer students.

Moniruzzaman Swadhin, managing director of SMMC, said students’ admission started in the college in 2014 and there are 225 students in seven batches at present. But, the college failed to get registration of Bangladesh Medical and Dental Council (BMDC) as yet because of failing to fulfill the requisite conditions.

Earlier in March, 2019, an inquiry team from the health ministry had suggested the college authority to fulfill the existing deficit of the prerequisite conditions in terms of the college operation.

On February 29 this year, another inquiry team witnessed that the authority didn’t fulfill any of the conditions. The situation meant that the authority had no intention to operate the institution properly, said the government order signed by Bodrun Nahar.
