By opens the new Medical college in Tiruvannamalai will increase the number of government medical colleges in the state to 19 and the number of medical seats to 2,530. Official said that the construction of the medical college in Tiruvannamalai is nearing in completion.

Madras Medical College in Chennai constructing new building in the old jail premises and that building will be inspected by MCI officials. Soon students will be shifted to the new building for the next academic year for theory classes and visit the hospital for clinical sessions.

The New medical college opening in Tiruvannamalai will be affiliated to Tamil Nadu Dr MGR Medical University. Initially, University had 31 affiliated medical colleges which includes 13 self financing and 10 deemed universities.

A senior health department official said they were looking to increase the number of medical colleges and seats not only to give more students a chance to become doctors but also to make quality healthcare accessible to the poor.

Official said, “As the first move we are upgrading the facilities in district hospitals to the level of medical college hospitals. While it will help us improve healthcare facilities, it will also make it easy to start a college once we establish such facilities and recruit specialists. We find that, its extremely hard to find qualified staff in non – clinical subjects,”

Tamil Nadu is having high number of Medical Colleges in the country compared to many other states, yet every year there is tough competition for admissions. The cut – off for medicine is and high is 92% for reserved category and 99% for general category students.

MMC Dean Dr V Kanasabai feel that increasing the number of government medical colleges will help deserving students to get into medical colleges without paying huge capitation fees.

 

Private Colleges conduct Entrance

Private Medical Colleges can conduct Entrance Test but can’t declare Results

The Supreme Court, while deciding to examine the validity of the National Eligibility and Entrance Test ( NEET ), has permitted private medical colleges to conduct their own entrance tests for admission to MBBS / postgraduate / dental courses but they should not declare the results until its further orders.

A Bench of Chief Justice Altamas Kabir and Justices S.S. Nijjar and J. Chelameswar, by an interim order, also allowed the Medical Council of India, the Dental Council of India, as well as the States and universities and other institutions to conduct their respective examinations for MBBS and other postgraduate courses on condition that they would not declare the results.

The MCI recently conducted the NEET even as the case was pending consideration by the Bench. Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu, several associations of private medical colleges, the Christian Medical College, Vellore, DD Medical College and DD Hospital, Tamil Nadu, and various individual colleges had filed petitions in High Courts and obtained an interim stay against NEET applicability to them.

Aggrieved, the MCI filed petitions seeking transfer of these cases to the Supreme Court to avoid multiplicity of proceedings. The Supreme Court, while staying all further proceedings, issued notice to the respondent colleges / States / associations seeking their response.

In the interim order passed on over 50 transfer petitions, the Bench said that while the main pending matters needed to be decided early, “the time taken in hearing the matters should be utilized in allowing the students to sit for their examinations which have been already notified. Accordingly, let all the transferred cases, as well as the writ petitions, be listed for final hearing and disposal on 15th January, 2013 and 16th January, 2013 and 17th January, 2013.”

‘Give wide publicity’

Such of those matters which had not been transferred from High Courts should be transferred to the Supreme Court, the Bench said. It asked the MCI, the DCI, the Union of India and the States to give wide publicity so that “students who are intending to sit for the entrance examinations may have knowledge of the same.”

Differing stands

In these cases, while the MCI said the NEET would avoid multiple entrance tests and minimize corruption and irregularities in admissions, private unaided colleges, religious and linguistic minorities alleged that the NEET interfered with their autonomy and right to admit students of their choice by conducting their own entrance tests without compromising on merit.

MCI New Norms

MCI introduces new norms for NEET

Medical Council of India ( MCI ) has introduced new norms for NEET – UG level to be introduced next year for admission to MBBS courses. These changes are in relation to the marks scored in NEET for securing admission to medical courses.

The changes are as follows :

In order to be eligible for admission undergraduate medical courses, a general category applicant needs to score a minimum of marks at the 50th percentile in the NEET for that particular academic year.

The SC / ST / OBC candidates need to score a minimum of 40th percentile while those with locomotory disability of the lower limbs should secure marks at the 45th percentile in NEET for the academic year. Under the new norms, the percentile will be decided on the basis of the maximum marks scored in the All India Common Merit list in NEET.

Medical aspirants should have studied specific subjects and also secured the pre – fixed minimum marks in Class XII exam apart from the marks stipulated in NEET.

Applicants should have cleared English, Chemistry, Physics and Biology / Biotechnology subjects and should have scored a minimum of 50% marks in these subjects in Class XII exam in order to be eligible for admission to medical courses apart from securing a rank in the merit list of NEET.

The SC / ST / OBC candidates should have scored a minimum of 40% marks in Chemistry, Physics and Biology / Biotechnology in Class XII exams while those with locomotory disability of the lower limbs should have secured atleast 45% marks in these subjects in the qualifying exam. They would gain admission only if they are found eligible as per the norms.

MCI also notified changes in admission to PG courses through NEET. However these changes are not welcomed by the doctors aspiring to pursue PG. The notification states that MBBS graduates would be given admission to all medical colleges except Central medical institutes. Those seeking admission to JIPMER, NIMHANS and AIIMS among others would be required to take separate tests. The medical graduates revealed that this will defeat the purpose of single national level entrance test which was implemented to prevent medicos from taking multiple exams.

The medicos claimed that what is the purpose of taking eligibility test after completing MBBS degree. This puts a question on the value of their MBBS degree. Further the MBBS graduates expressed that they will have to spend huge amounts to take the tests in different cities.

NEET should be introduced with a single test including all Central institutes, management quota seats in private medical colleges and Diplomate in National Board ( DNB ).

Moreover, cut – off marks for SC / STs, OCs and OBCs should be removed and seats should be assigned depending on the total marks secured in the entrance exam. Also Center has no right to intervene with the state’s right to allot 50% seats under it. The state should get autonomy to conduct admissions in medical colleges as per their own systems.

The new notification also mandates the states to secure the agreement of the MCI and Center to admit students against the vacant reserved quota PG seats every year.

MCI 3.5 years BSc Course

MCI Approves 3.5 years BSc Course in Community Health

The Medical Council of India ( MCI ) has finally cleared introduction of the three – and – a – half-year long medical course. Calling it BSc in Community Health, it will be open to anybody after class 12.

Speaking to TOI, MCI Board Chairman Dr K K Talwar said this special cadre of health workers will be trained mainly in district hospitals, be placed in sub – centres or primary health centres and will be taught “some module of clinical work”.

This means this cadre can actually diagnose and treat basic medical cases, get involved in immunization programmes and administer extended first aid.

“We intend to introduce the course from April next year. This cadre will also refer patients according to their condition to other centres. We have also prepared the syllabus of the course. The ministry will now take the final call,” Dr Talwar said.

Health secretary P K Pradhan has called a high level meeting on 25th September, 2012 to finalize the proposal.

The Planning Commission’s high level expert group has strongly backed the all new health cadre and said that as a career progression incentive, they should be promoted to the level of public health officers after 10 years of service.

The health ministry has been strongly pushing for the introduction of this cadre, in order to tackle the menace of doctors unwilling to serve in rural areas. Only 26% of doctors in India reside in rural areas, serving 72% of India’s population. The urban density of doctors is nearly four times that of rural areas, and that of nurses is three times higher.

Things have taken a turn for the worse in the past few decades with the disappearance of certain cadres – village health guides and traditional birth attendants, first instituted in 1986. Experts said the selection of students would be based on merit in the Class 12 examination with physics, chemistry and biology as subjects.

Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad had earlier said that he wanted an MCI stamp on the degree so that it was universally recognized. “The syllabus of the course is also ready and is need – based. If MCI endorses it, students will get the confidence that the degree has a standing,” he had said.

The panel, however, was clear that the course was not a mini – MBBS but rather a unique training programme aimed at the basic health care needs of its target population.

PG Entrance Test Next Year

Entrance Test for PG Medical Courses from Next Year

The Medical Council of India ( MCI ) will hold an all – India level examination for admission to postgraduate medical courses across the country early next year. This will be the first common entrance test for such courses.

According to the MCI, the syllabus for the National Eligibility and Entrance Test ( NEET – PG ) will be that of the MBBS, and further information in this regard will soon be put on its website.

“The Common Entrance Test ( CET ) for admission to Medical Post-graduate Courses across the country ( NEET – PG ) shall be held in January – February 2012 for admissions in the academic year 2012 – 2013,” a notice issued by the MCI said.

“The Multiple Choice Questions ( MCQs ) will be based on the MBBS syllabus as well as the knowledge that needs to be acquired during internship. The distribution of questions, model questions, and method of tie breaking for ranking would be placed on the website in due course,” the MCI said.

The MCI’s decision to hold a national level examination for admission in undergraduate and post – graduate courses was opposed by various stakeholders.

A student has to take over a dozen examinations for one medical seat, despite facing problems like the clash of dates and multiple fees. Various students’ bodies have demanded single examination for PG medical entrance on the lines of All India Engineering Entrance Examination ( AIEEE ).

Every year about 40,000 students are admitted to undergraduate programmes and some 19,000 for postgraduate courses. There are close to 300 private and government controlled medical colleges in the country.
