The minister further informed about the various advertisements and steps taken by the government to address the doctor shortage at AIIMS

 

  • A total number of 305 posts of various Faculty disciplines have been created for each of six functional AIIMS namely AIIMS at Bhopal, Bhubaneswar, Jodhpur, Patna, Raipur and Rishikesh. 183 Faculty posts have been sanctioned for each of the AIIMS at Mangalagiri, Nagpur and Kalyani. Posts of Senior Residents and Junior Residents have been sanctioned for each of the above AIIMS. Recruitment to various positions is done on need basis keeping in view the additional services and facilities planned to be added in the hospitals. Vacant faculty posts are advertised regularly by the Institutes depending on their requirement. However, as high standards have to be maintained in selection, keeping in view the stature of these Institutes of National Importance, all the advertised positions could not be filled up.

 

  • Various positions of Senior Resident and Junior Resident are also advertised and filled up on need basis by the respective AIIMS. To facilitate expeditious filling up of vacancies, separate Standing Selection Committee (SSCs) have been constituted for each of the aforesaid six AIIMS. Also, recruitment exercises are being held periodically in all the six AIIMS. This Ministry has also nominated Institutes of National Importance (such as six AIIMS, PGIMER JIPMER) to provide mentorship to new AIIMS and support them in their recruitment process.

 

  • The upper age limit for direct recruitment against the posts of Professor and Additional Professor in the six AIIMS has been raised from the present 50 years to 58 years. Filling up of vacant Faculty posts in the new AIIMS by taking serving Faculty from Government Medical Colleges/Institutes on deputation basis has also been allowed.

    Dr. Parshant
    It finally had it coming. About 20,000 odd diploma pass out candidates and age limit forced them out of job and deprived medical colleges of working doctors. Let MCI come up with answer.!!

  2. They want 3 years experience in government institute after doing PG, even if you have done PG from premier institute. Whats use of increasing age limit to 70 years if you cant give chance to young people.

  3. It\’s a farce. No advertisements in national papers. The jodhpur site for online filling of information opened 4hrs prior to the closing time. It\’s a managed deal. Otherwise there are so many doctors passing out every year and these people do not fill the vacancies.

    IT IS QUITE DISGUSTING THE WAY THEY CALL FOR AN INTERVIEW, NO DA /DA. ONE HAS TO REPORT ON THE DOT. THE INTERVIEW DATE, TIME MAY CHANGED WITH OUT NOTICE. THE DECISION OF THE COMMITTEE IS FINAL, WHO ARE THE COMMITTEE MEMBERS ARE NOT MENTIONED ( AS IF THEY ARE DEDENTS OF MHOMED OR AURANGZEB, MOUNT BATEIN, CHA CHA\’ S FAMILY). VERY RUDE WAY EXPRESSION. I THINK THEY LACK BASIC MANNERS. I WASTED MY TIME & MONEY FOR ATTENDING ONE SUCH INTERVIEW CALLED FOR THE POST PROFESSOR BY E S I AT DELHI. THE FUNNIEST OR DIRTEST THINK, THERE WERE ONLY TWO FOR POST, THEY DIDN\’T NOT SELECT ANY ONE US. MAY BE SOLD OUT TO SOME ON A LATER DAY. REAL CHEAP & SILLY GUYS. SET OF MORANS.

  5. its basically policy fault that the govt has opened these so called AIIMs in northern parts of country wherein the deficiency faculty is an age old problem. they allowed private colleges in only south to begin whith. same mistake they have done starting these colleges in north. magalgiri just started. madhurai not yet , no AIIMs in Karnataka. you start 2 AIIMS in Karnataka with 24 hours all faculty positions will be full, I can vouch for this. these are just appeasing politics hence they opt to fail no doubt.
