Medical Faculty deans to discuss transferring SAITM to SLIIT

The deans of eight medical faculties are to meet today (28) at the Sri Lanka Medical Council (SLMC) to explore the feasibility of transferring the ownership of the South Asia Institute of Technology and Medicine (SAITM) to Sri Lanka Institute of Information Technology (SLIIT) based on the restructuring module recommended by the five-member Presidential Committee chaired by Deputy Minister Harsha de Silva, reliable sources said.

Dean of the Medical Faculty of the University of Kelaniya, Professor Nilanthi de Silva in a letter sent to medical students last week had asked them to attend lectures again, saying that the SAITM issue would be settled in a positive manner soon, the Daily Mirror learns.

In the letter dated September 19 she had hinted that the South Asian Institute of Technology and Medicine (SAITM) would be taken over by another entity which she had said “would most probably be SLIIT”.
