Nepali medical students studying in Bangladesh demand stipend
Kathmandu, December 14
Nepali resident doctors studying post graduate degree in Bangladesh have demanded for stipend.
Bangaladeshi citizens have been provided 20,000 Taka as a stipend. Foreign students can only get an admission in MD/MS/MDS in Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) in Bangladesh. A total of 100 Nepali doctors are studying in five year courses of MD/MS/MDS. The doctors studying in Bangladesh have already requested Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli and Minister of Foreign Affairs Pradip KUmar Gyawali to take actions on the matter almost a year ago. The students had submitted a memorandum to the PM and foreign minister.
"The Nepali doctors have been deprived of stipend and other services when the Bangladeshi colleagues are getting the stipend and services," it had said.
Dr Sagar Poudel currently studying in All India Institute of Medical Sciences submitting a memorandum to Minister Gyawali has requested him to help in the matter. Indian Court earlier had ordered that stipend be provided to foreign resident medical students studying in India. Students in PGI Chandigarh have started to get the stipend while it is in the process in All India Institute of Medical Sciences.
