SLMC to appeal court verdict on SAITM

The Sri Lanka Medical Council (SLMC) today (17) decided to appeal against the Appeal court ruling made with regard to the private medical college in Malabe (SAITM).

SLMC Registrar Terrence Gamini De Silva said the Council decided to file an appeal after an extensive discussion on the matter last afternoon after discussing several proposals made by the councillors.

The Court of Appeal on January 31 ruled that the South Asian Institute of Technology and Medicine (SAITM) is legally eligible to issue medical degrees to the students. The court also directed the Sri Lanka Medical Council (SLMC) to give provisional registration to medical students passing out from SAITM.
