Govt. to shoulder SAITM students’ overheads

The government has decided to admit only the students currently studying at the SAITM medical college to the Kotalawala Defence University medical faculty and shoulder their expenses.

Accordingly, the government will shoulder these students educational expenses and other extra costs, while providing the extra payments needed to conduct the services at the Kotalawala Defence University hospital.

A special committee was appointed headed by the Defence Secretary to look into a suitable process to enrol the SAITM students at the Kotalawala Defence University medical college and this decision was taken based on its recommendations.

The proposal submitted to Cabinet by President Maithrpala Sirisena to enforce these recommendations also was approved.
