Star: THE Malaysian Medical Association (MMA) is surprised that private colleges are charging their medical students exorbitant fees, when they are using facilities at government hospitals.
According to the Malaysia Nanban report, the MMA said specialists from the public hospitals are furthermore engaged at these colleges on a part-time basis and paid a nominal fee.
The MMA claimed the charges at the nine colleges providing medical programmes are be-tween RM200,000 to RM310,000 per student for a five-year course.
It added that the eight government hospitals that are allowing the use of their medical training facilities are only collecting between RM15,000 and RM20,000 from each college.
The association hopes to meet the Education and Health ministries soon to discuss the issue and fix a ceiling fee for those pursuing medicine in the country’s private colleges.
