Kathmandu, April 28: According to the Global Burden of Illness Study, Neonatal disorders, Ischaemic Heart Diseases, COPD, Lower respiratory infection, Diarrhoeal disease, Road injury, and Stroke are the leading cause of morbidity in Nepal.
When talking about medical education, hopefully, it is available in extreme cities and remote residents are still unable to get proper medical education due to political crises and lack of human resource development.
The Ministry of Education, Science, and Technology has started conferences with stakeholders in its bid to construct the country’s medical science education more organized and qualitative.
Devendra Poudel, Minister of Education and Science & Technology discussed last Tuesday, with the authority of the Medical Education Commission, Kathmandu University, Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital, Nepal Sanskrit University, Purbanchal University, and more other health authorities how to establish a systematic and better quality of science and medical education in the nation.

Minister Poudel called the meeting at a time when situations have been raised concerning the advancement of medical teaching in Nepal as Rs 98 billion is dispatched abroad from Nepal every year via students seeking medical education.
Minister Poudel told that interest in medical education is rising in the country. Nepali students following medical education in foreign countries have been rehearsing after returning to Nepal. “Let’s create a provision for them to study and take the exam in Nepal itself.”
According to Minister Poudel, if we can save the funds by establishing a systematic medical hub in our country, instead of spending it abroad for medical education, it would be very beneficial for the country.
Minister Poudel also voiced his displeasure over the shortage of qualified human resources in the field through their records were acceptable in terms of numbers.
“Let’s concentrate on quality education by improving the criteria for competing for opportunity. While accomplishing so, the skilled human resource should not remain unemployed,” expressed the minister.
Because of the proper regulation of law and order in Nepal, many students are forced to go abroad to study not only in the medical sector but other science and technology-related subjects also. Concerning the situation, the minister told that we have shrunk education in the name of regulations. Many students are deprived of the chance to study in the country because of the difficulties in Laws and Acts.
