PMDC advises students to take admission in recognised medical colleges only


ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC) Wednesday advised parents and students to get admission only in those medical and dental colleges that are recognised by the council.

According to an official of PMDC, if any student takes admission in any unrecognised medical or dental institution, that student would not be registered with PMDC and the council would not take any responsibility for any adverse action on their career.
