By Nilantha Madurawela

A number of professors and senior lecturers, who were attached to the Medical Faculty of the University of Sri Lanka, have either joined the permanent staff of the Malabe Private Medical College or lecture at the institute during the weekends.

Among them are 16 Professors and 12 senior lecturers. Seven professors have taken sabbatical leave from the university and are teaching permanently at the private medical college while the rest of the professors and senior lecturers are conducting lectures during the weekends.

Director of the private medical college Dr. Sameera Senaratne told the media that they had been recruited after calling for applications.

He said a committee has been appointed by the health ministry to review the medical colleges and it had not mentioned anything about not recruiting students and hence its academic affairs continue as usual.
