KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 19 (Bernama) — Deputy Minister of Higher Education Datuk Ong Tee Keat has advised university lecturers who are not proficient in English to put in a lot of practice to improve their performance.

No matter whether or not the ministry would provide specific or intensive courses for them, these lecturers must be able to identify their own strengths and weaknesses, he said.

“We might have a handicap in a particular language, for example English, but it is our own duty and effort to improve on it,” he told reporters after the launch of the Malaysian Medical Association’s (MMA) Guide to Join Local and Overseas Medical Colleges, here Tuesday.

He was asked to comment on a Universiti Malaya (UM) study which indicated that there are lecturers in universities who are weak in the English language.

Higher Education Minister Datuk Mustapa Mohamed when announcing the finding had expressed his concern over the matter and urged the undergraduates and lectures to improve their proficiency in the language to meet the highly competitive global environment.

Meanwhile, chairman of the MMA Committee on Medical Education Datuk Dr N Athimulam urged all media organisations not to publish any advertisement for new student intake from any unrecognised medical college.

“We have given you the book today and already stated which medical colleges or universities are recognised, so whenever any agent comes to you, please check with the book. If it is not recognised, don’t advertise. If you advertise, the public will say that the college is recognised,” he said.

The Guide to Join Medical Colleges Local and Overseas contains guidelines to pursue studies, the nature of work of a doctor and a list of recognised and unrecognised medical colleges and universities.

It is available nationwide from Jan 1.
