Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, India., May 5, 2014 - (PressReleasePoint) -

The Kerala Govt. has chose to talk to the Medical Council of India (MCI) to rethink the call on the termination of 94 postgraduate seats in the 5 govt medical institutions.

The govt is under stress since the private medical institutions have induced it distinct that their postgraduate seats is definitely not provided under the govt quota for the current academic year.

This is certainly the very first time that the state have missed this kind of a huge share of PG seats. "The government has now decided to approach the MCI to reconsider the decision. The present decision has come following its inspection of these colleges. Hence, we will request the MCI to have a re-inspection," said a health division officer.

The MCI have 3 years back created a specification that 2 PG seats may be approved for a professor's post. It was previously 1:1. "Based on this the health department had increased the postgraduate seats even without fulfilling the MCI norms. This has now put the medical education in trouble as many of the colleges failed to fulfill the MCI norms during its inspection," stated Kerala Govt Medical College Teachers' Association (KGMCTA) state president Dr K Mohanan.

The MCI have dropped the registration of the 94 PG seats stating a number of factors such as insufficient faculties, amenities and bed strength.
The MCI reports have stated there presently exists a number of openings in the entry cadre (junior resident doctors and assistant professors) of medical institutions. "There exists 380 vacancies in the medical education service and the government has increased the PG seats without fulfilling even the basic needed posts of faculties. Now the private medical colleges have made it clear that they are not ready share their seats under government quota. This will mean that the MBBS graduates will have only limited chances for getting PG seats," stated Dr Sabari Nath P S, state coordinator of Kerala Medical Postgraduates' Association.

The Kozhikode medical college missed PG seats in general medicine, psychiatry, obstetrics as well as gynaecology (OBG), community medicine, microbiology, physiology, respiratory medicine and anaesthesiology. The medical college at Allappuzha missed PG seats in general surgery, paediatrics, general medicine, OBG, anaesthesiology, ortho and dermatology.
