SRI LANKA MEDICAL COUNCIL RECOGNIZES TVER STATE MEDICAL UNIVERSITY
According to official reports, in the summer of 2020, the Tver State Medical University was removed from the list of universities recognized by the Medical Council of Sri Lanka (SLMC).
The procedure of recognition takes place regularly every five years. The last was in 2016. The fact of early exclusion from the list, of course, could affect the decline image of the Tver State Medical University not only in the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka, but also all over the World. Currently, 303 students from the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka study at Tver State Medical University, two of them due to direction of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation within the quota for the education of foreign citizens in the Russian Federation. Hundreds of graduates successfully work in Sri Lanka and other countries.
In October 2020, as a result of lengthy negotiations the Tver State Medical University was again recognized by the Medical Council of Sri Lanka. We thank His Excellency Mr. Yury B.Materiy, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Russian Federation to the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka and to the Republic of Maldives; Mrs. Anastasia Khokhlova, First Secretary and Head of Cultural Branch and Rossotrudnichestvo Mission in Sri Lanka; His Excellency Mr. M. D. Lamawansa, prof., Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka to the Russian Federation as well as representatives of “Russian Educational Center Ltd” for support and grate assistance in resolving this issue.
We express hope for further interest of Sri Lankan applicants in medical education at the Tver State Medical University. We wish success in studying to our students from Sri Lanka!
