In 2020, medical students in Pakistan are quite confused about NLE exam. NLE Exam Pakistan 2020 PMC has become such a mystery that its becoming hard to get relevant information from any quarter, and from any reliable source.
Evaluation proformas for MBBS and evaluation proformas for BDS are availbale for download from PMC website and there is also a checklist for inspections. That is at least somewhat clear which is welcoming thing. There is also a list of undergraduate recognised medical and dental institutions/ Colleges/DAI’s across Pakistan.
PM&DC or PMDC or PMC is a statutory regulatory authority established under Pakistan Medical & Dental Council Ordinance 1962 as a body corporate. It is known and respected worldwide and is part of international community of medical regulatory authorities (IAMRA). The reputation of PMC is quite solid worldwide as it has produced quality trained gradues over time who are serving across the globe.
Pakistani doctors are considered one of the best and are doing meritorious service in all parts of the world and that is a testimony to the effective regulation of medical education being done by the PM&DC. Having said that, there still are gaps to be filled because one of the condition is that no Pakistani Doctor can practice in Pakistan or abroad without being registered with PM&DC or without being in goodstanding with it, and that is why its so important to make sure that this organization remains agile.
One of the contentious bone is the NLE exam, which is National Licensing examination for medical students. Majority of students have rejected this and they are demanding overhaul of this program as that is far from reality and is making things impossible instead of facilitating the students. Its high time that NLE Exam Pakistan 2020 PMC should be reviewed.
