It is a matter of growing concern that students are losing interest in studying science subjects at secondary and higher-secondary levels. This is because of the fact that after studying in the science group, students get very limited opportunities to continue higher studies in science-based disciplines in the country.
Setting up of more medical colleges will encourage students to study science subjects at secondary and higher-secondary levels. The government is committed to providing health services to people in both rural and urban areas. But it has become increasingly difficult as the doctors are not willing to serve in the health centres located in rural areas. This problem has been continuing for quite some time now and unless it is addressed promptly, it will not help us develop a good number of qualified doctors in the country. It is therefore necessary to set up public medical colleges at district level to facilitate better health services at grass root level. In this respect, the government has to play the lead role which will eventually pave the way for similar institutions in the private sector.
