Delhi PG

MEDICAL students preparing for a post graduate degree have threatened to take Delhi University (DU) to court following the decision of the post graduate committee of Medical Council of India (MCI) to withdraw 76 seats in non-teaching medical colleges under DU, from this year, and reallocate them.

The students are angry because the MCI and the Health Ministry have communicated to DU that more deliberations are required before making suitable recognitions for specialists/teachers in non-medical colleges.

In a meeting held yesterday, DU officials decided the decision will not be reverted. The faculty of medical sciences also considered the proposal received from Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital to establish a Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research.

In a letter addressed to the university earlier this month, the MCI stated: ‘‘Specialists working in non-teaching institutions cannot be recognised as a post-graduate teacher as they do not hold teaching designations.’’

With counselling for the all-India quota already underway, students worry this will take away the opportunity for them to study courses such as the Masters in Medicine, Masters in Surgery, and various speciality diploma courses, which are offered in the non-teaching colleges.

‘‘Around 20 students will be filing the petition in court day after. We have demanded that the seats at RML and Safdarjung hospital be reinstated,’’ said Dr Aashish Chaudhray, a candidate for the courses.

The non-teaching colleges include Safdarjung Hospital, Ram Manohar Lahoia Hospital, Kasturba Gandhi Hospital and Bara Hindu Rao College.

In yesterday’s meeting, the DU Vice-Chancellor UCMS head, Prof B.K. Jain, DU chairperson of Board of Research for Medical Science Prof S.K. Bhargava, and over 100 faculty members decided they will go ahead with the reallocation of seats.
