These scintillating disclosure were made by Board of Intermediate Education Karachi (BIEK) Chairman, Prof Anwar Ahmed Zai, in an interview with the Medical News.
In support of his
contention that girls have outnumbered their counterparts in dental and medical colleges, he
said that percentage of female candidates who have been opting for Pre-Medical group in the Class-XI for the last four or five years ranged between 58 and 60 whereas the percentage of boys stood at around 40.
In addition to this, the ratio of girls and boys getting admission to dental and medical colleges comes to about 70:30, respectively, he
Statistics of HSSC annual examinations conducted by the BIEK
in the last five years and obtained by the Medical News
clearly indicated that the students getting enrolled with the Board in Science (Pre-Medical) faculty during the same period was rapidly declining, thereby meaning that a considerable number of students were no more being attracted with dental and medical profession for a number of reasons.
Sources are of the view that some of the major issues discouraging students not to adopt dental/medical profession include insufficient job opportunities in the public sector health facilities and long duty hours and low salaries package for fresh doctors at private hospitals and clinics.
Commenting on the situation, the BIEK chief, Prof Zai, said that the trend of switching over from Science (Pre-Medical) group to Commerce and other groups could be either due to the students fear that after doing their MBBS they might not be able to get jobs in the public sector health facilities due to the government's limited financial resources or because of low salary structure and long duty hours at the private sector hospitals.
said that in all 20742 students were enrolled in the Pre-Medical group in 2008 whereas those enrolled in the same group in 2012 stood at 16959.
Emphasising the need for galvanizing and revamping the medical education policy, he
opined that the government should undertake an exercise aimed at knowing how many students are currently admitted to First-Year classes in the dental and medical colleges/universities and whether these students upon doing graduation after five years would be enough to meet the requirement of both the dental and medical doctors.
Mentioning that the gender-wise ratio of female and male students pursuing medical education at Intermediate level roughly stood at 60:40 and those being admitted to dental and medical colleges/universities comes to about 70pc female students and a mere 30pc in the case of male students, he
feared that there could be dearth of male doctors in the country if the policy of granting admission to the public sector medical colleges was not reviewed.
