JUMLA, June 22: Nepal Medical Council (NMC) has granted Karnali Academy of Health Sciences (KAHS) the permission to start courses for Doctor of Medicine in General Practices and Emergency Medicine (MDGP). This has opened an avenue for KAHS to produce specialist doctors. The permission to conduct MDGP courses also opens doors to begin the MBBS (Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery) course.

JUMLA, March 4: Eight months after a violent clash at Jumla-based Karnali Academy of Health Science while forcefully airlifting medical reform activist Dr Govinda KC to Kathmandu left scores of health professionals injured, a task force formed to investigate into the incident is yet to publicize its report.
