PREFACE
While inaugurating the first meeting of the Medical Education Review Committee Shri B.Shankaranand, Union Minister of Health and Family Welfare, had urged the Committee to evolverecommendations on its various terms of reference, ensuring that the same were in tune with theneeds and priorities of the country and easy of speedy, practical implementation. He had urgedthe Committee to complete its work as early as possible.In view of the fact that certain information and analysis was available in the reports of similarcommittees established by the Government in the past, the Medical Education Review Committeedid not consider it necessary to undertake visits to institutions in the country or to holddiscussions outside Delhi. Instead, the Committee devised a questionnaire for eliciting theopinion of identified eminent specialists and teachers, located in various parts of the country. TheCommittee also had the benefit of informal discussions with the Chairman, University GrantsCommission. Besides, it had the opportunity of hearing the views of the representatives of the AllIndia Federation of the Junior Doctors' Associations.To ensure the maintenance of high standards of medical education it is necessary that existingteaching institutions strictly adhere to the regulations of the Medical Council of India in regard toadmissions, faculty strength, availability of prescribed infrastructural facilities etc. While thebasic emphasis should be to see that the existing institutions run on the most satisfactory basis,new medical colleges may be allowed to be established only after very careful examination of every proposal. Furthermore, a stricter view would require to be taken in regard to the continuedrecognition of institutions which have failed to maintain the requisite standards. While theCommittee has evolved various recommendations for bringing about an improvement in theexisting situation, it appears necessary that Government review and urgently bring about suitableamendments in the Indian Medical Council Act, 1956, to make it effective.In view of the need to bring about adequate coordination of efforts, on all fronts, as well as to laythe foundations of a well-considered, uniform approach towards all aspects of medical educationit appears necessary for the Government to consider establishing a central authority to beresponsible for coordination, planning and implementation of various medical and healtheducation programmes, assessment of health manpower requirements and developmentprogrammes, provision of suitable financial support to medical and health institutions etc. TheCommittee has made certain recommendations in this regard and hopes that the Governmentwould give due consideration to them.The only term of reference in regard to which the Committee has not so far finalised itsrecommendations relates to an assessment of the available stock of medical and para-medicalhealth personnel and the projection of requirements for the future, keeping various relatedconsiderations in view. This task involves a great deal of time, specially as the basic informationis not readily available. The Committee hopes to submit a further report, on this aspect, shortly,making such recommendations as may be possible, based on available information.I trust the Government would consider the recommendations of the Committee on an urgentbasis, so that the much needed reform in the medical education system and related spheres is notavoidably delayed.The functioning of the Committee has been most competently handed by its Member-Secretary,Shri N. N. Vohra, who served it in addition to his heavy charge as a Joint Secretary in the Minis-try. He had to put in a great deal of hard work and harmonise discussions and varying views on
