HEC makes little headway on many fronts

Though it has not been without successes, the Higher Education Commission (HEC), has failed on many fronts since its inception in 2002. The HEC has made its mark taking several initiatives including sending Pakistani scholars abroad on scholarships, besides providing indigenous scholarships to thousands of students over the years for the promotion of higher education in the country. Over 240 public and private universities are currently functioning in the country and all public sector universities are predominantly funded by the HEC, the successor to the University Grants Commission. But in many cases, the problems lie in the fine print of these achievements.

Power clique uses PMDC to gain monopoly over medical education

Succumbing to the demands of a power clique that took over the country’s prime regulatory body of medical education – the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC) – last year, the Karachi University’s (KU) vice-chancellor Dr Muhammad Qaiser has announced admissions to the university’s ‘medical college’ that has yet to see the light of day. The vice-chancellor made the announcement in reaction to the PMDC’s tactics of pressing the university to secede from its 13 affiliated medical and dental colleges since it does not have a constituent medical or dental college of its own. Ironic as it may seem, the PMDC’s controversial caretakers are conspiring against the university that has been awarding medicine degrees since its inception in 1951 and thousands of healthcare professionals in the country feel privileged of having their names attached to the institution.
