CRISIS IN INDIAN MEDICAL EDUCATIONTime to verify the Issues
Dr.T.V.Rao MDImproving the health of a common man is a Universal priority, every elected Government should fallin line to show the citizens that health is a concern for them, they promise to find ways to improveit. India continues to spend less on basic health care when compared with many of our neighbouringNations. India with mass population base of more than 1.2 billion can do little to date; the existingGovernmental system is compromised with politics, lethargy, and corruption. The vision to startmany Medical colleges in India in private sector has greatly changed the face of National health inthe last three decades. Some Institutes are recognized as centres of excellence and produced manycompetent Doctors who are no less than Doctors created by the reputed Government InstitutionsRecently there is sudden surge of several Medical colleges in private sector The challenges to run aprivate medical college are many and much more difficult than running a Government MedicalCollege. The Medical Council of India regulates to build infrastructure, and bring in qualified andexperienced persons who are more of spent out force, few have current perceptions to buildmodern Institutions, and many have to compromise with private managements. The Medical councilis interested in physical verification and head counting. Nobody asks about our vision to develop theDepartment or College. If the present number of establishing Medical Colleges continues willproduce substandard Doctors who are outdated even for today's needs. The results are evident withmushrooming of private Medical and Nursing College's producing less equipped, less productive andhighly exploitive doctors. But question remains who will bear the burden, the answer is certainlyinnocent public. In spite of several difficulties the private medical institutes should create somethingmore imaginative so our students are prepared to improve the health system and adapt rapidly tochanging health scenario in the Nation. The present resentment of our young medical graduates togo to rural areas exposes, that we have created Doctors for urban care and comforts, they are afraidto work alone without guidance of seniors The major fault lies with us we are producing graduates inmodern medicine with modern facilities without teaching adoption to poor patients and rural need,so the young Doctors are resenting to do rural services. In allopathic system of Medicine we areteaching on evidence based protocols, proving good in theory and poor in practice, making MBBSdegree as licence to appear for postgraduate entrance test. The question comes are we elders justified in blaming young Doctors who are not willing to go rural areas. Many policy makers have noidea of rural life; make policies on paper which will never work. In next few decades only privatemedical institutes will decide the future of Nations health. It is time that upcoming Institutes shoulddecide their priorities, can we do the best care of patients, create and encourage better teachersand save many lives. Our less performing Medical graduate's lies with poor practical training, manystudents from even Government colleges cum up on their own, as rapid expansion made manyDoctors as teachers without passion for teaching imparting poor knowledge to the students. It islong term observation many teachers survive just because they are postgraduate guides and
Examiners, otherwise ……? The
greatest down fall of our degrees lies with poor practical assessmentof our students. Much private management asses the teacher's capability to produce goodpercentage of results, every sincere teacher is a loser in the present commercial system of educationwhere managements market results as source of their strength. There are several medical collegesstarted in the last 5 -10 years, waiting for social judgments, and people are watching how they
