    Those members of MCI who have advocated and allowed foreign degree holders to become teachers in medical colleges have done injustice to doctors who have passed/will pass in future. Those have forgotten why foreign degrees were disallowed in past.

  3. Let us compete in knowledge & ability to diagnose in limited access

  4. Sad day for my Teachers.
    A bleak future to those aspiring teachers.

    – Reena Nayyar and her MCI Goonies what a bunch disgusting creatures.

  5. This is the worst that this Govt has done . Teaching is not simply the requirement of Post Graduates . Teaching and becoming teachers is a gradual phenomenon and systems are learnt and followed in stages . First one does post graduation and then one continues as a senior resident for years and then one does work as Registrar [Real teaching ] because these are teaching posts in a discipline ,again for few years may be up to 3-4 yrs. After doing registrars teaching job one has to take the job of a lecturer in the same specialty for some significant number of years may be up to five years and then and only then , one can apply for the post of an Assistant professor and continue further . Here these things have been done in haste . This is very very poor application of mind . This will lead to the disaster to the medical education in this country .

  6. There is no such post as registrar now a days? Kaha Jee Rahe ho?
