The National Medical Commission said that the government has taken the issue of vacancies in public medical colleges and institutions seriously and the matter will be taken up with Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the meeting of Chief Secretaries.
The Medical Assessment and Rating Board of the NMC, in a letter to the concerned in-charge of all government medical colleges and institutions, has said that they have noticed that many of their departments are lying vacant for many years.
“Colleges/Institutes are applying for Undergraduate, Post Graduate, Broad and Super Specialty courses without proper qualifying qualification of teachers. We have also observed that there is a need to maintain standard teaching and training of doctors in the necessary and necessary equipment of the departments. There is a shortage.” NMC member (MARB) Professor G Suryanarayan Raju said in the letter dated October 11.
“The above matter has been taken up seriously by the Government of India. It is proposed to take up the matter with the Prime Minister of India in the Conference of Chief Secretaries of various States/Union Territories,” the letter said.
Thus, NMC has requested them (Dean/Principal/Director) to take up the matter of shortage/vacancies of staff and equipment in existing Government Medical Colleges/Institutions including teaching hospitals within 24 hours.
