The Government has decided to bring the Neville Fernando Hospital which is affiliated to the South Asia Institute of Technology and Management (SAITM) under the purview of the Health Ministry, the Ministry of Higher Education and Highways said today.

In a statement the Higher Education Ministry said the Neville Fernando Hospital would continue to operate as a teaching hospital under the Health Ministry.

The Ministry stated that the SAITM students who have passed their final MBBS examination would be given further clinical training in the areas of surgery, medicine, gynecology and obstetrics, psychiatry and pediatrics, at the Homagama and Avissawella Hospitals.

Subsequent to this training, candidates will undergo a mandatory examination under the joint supervision of the Sri Lanka Medical Council (SLMC) and the University Grants Commission (UGC) for provisional registration, the Higher Education and Highways Ministry said.

The Health Ministry will also gazette the minimum standards required for medical education in Sri Lanka.

This decision was taken in the wake of the Government Medical Officers Association (GMOA) undertaking a token strike demanding the closure or nationalization of SAITM.
