AKIPRESS.COM - Pakistan Medical Commission included all universities of Kyrgyzstan into the blacklist, the Ministry of Education and Science said.
According to the Embassy of Kyrgyzstan in Pakistan, all universities in Kyrgyzstan training medical professionals are not recommended for admission for nationals of Pakistan.
Minister of Education and Science Almaz Beishenaliev held a meeting with rectors of universities having medical departments to discuss the situation.
It turned out that 90% of Pakistan nationals, who graduated from medical schools in Kyrgyzstan, failed their medical examinations of the Pakistan Medical Commission and for this reason their diplomas are not recognized.
The Ministry of Education explained the situation with a poor training of foreign and local nationals at domestic universities. Most universities do not have international accreditation.
The Ministry of Education said it will tighten control over universities, especially their medical departments, since this situation negatively impacts investment climate of the Kyrgyz Republic and prospects of education export. The Ministry of Education also ordered to tighten admission requirements for university applicants from Pakistan.
