The Dhaka Medical College Hospital authorities on Tuesday formed a committee to resolve the crisis over training courses for its graduates.

The committee comprising the heads of all the departments was formed at a meeting held at DMCH with its director Dr Abdus Shahid Khan in the chair.

Professors of different departments attended the meeting. 'At the meeting, we have decided to form the committee, led by the head of medicine department, to formulate an appropriate policy for postgraduate training courses,' Dr Khan said on Tuesday.

'It is necessary to take the opinions from every department to adopt any policy.' Those who were with the demonstration programme were educated and first class citizens of the society, he said. 'So we think that they are rational and will not do any harm to the institution.'

As part of the programme, the agitating alumni wearing black badges brought out a silent procession on the campus on Monday in protest against the decision of the hospital authorities that dropped their graduates from the postgraduate training courses.

They also staged a sit-in on the campus, submitted a memorandum to the hospital director and threatened to launch tougher action programme, if their demands were not met by Thursday.

The demonstrators alleged that they started the agitation programme after the authorities had excluded some doctors, who graduated from DMC, from the postgraduate training courses and allowed some graduates from different private medical colleges.
