Delay in Bringing Revised Graduate Medical Regulations: Court notice to MCI, Health Ministry


Delay in Bringing Revised Graduate Medical Regulations: Court notice to MCI, Health Ministry

MCI Regulations on Graduate Medical Education, 1997, is the foundation document that governs the undergraduate medical education that is MBBS education in India and contains the entire protocols on teaching modality, curriculum requirements, conduct, migration from medical colleges and various other details governing the MBBS course in India

New Delhi: The Delhi High Court has sought response of the Centre and the Medical Council of India (MCI) on a plea claiming that there is a delay in implementing the revised graduate medical education regulation.

A bench of Chief Justice Rajendra Menon and Justice V K Rao issued notice to authorities and directed them to file their responses within four weeks and list the matter for further hearing on May 3.

The petition filed by Indrajit Laxmanrao Khandekar said there has been a tremendous change in the field of medical examination worldwide and India has not witnessed the revision of the graduate medical education regulation (GMER) for undergraduate medical students since 1997, resulting into the adoption of outdated practices and study material by the students.

It sought direction to authorities to release and implement the revised graduate medical education regulation (as amended till date) forthwith.

The plea, filed through advocate Gaurav Kumar Bansal, said “medical students of our country, due to red tape attitude of respondents are forced to learn the outstanding practices” which is not only affecting the medical jurisprudence, but also hampering the criminal justice delivery system of the country.

The petitioner had earlier approached the MCI through RTI and was informed that the revised draft of the graduation medical regulation 2018 was pending for approval.

Medical Council of India Regulations on Graduate Medical Education, 1997, is the foundation document that governs the undergraduate medical education that is MBBS education in India and contains the entire protocols on teaching modality, curriculum requirements, conduct, migration from medical colleges and various other details governing the MBBS course in India

Medical Dialogues had earlier reported that the MCI Board of Governors (BOG), had in November 2018 approved the changes in the revised “Competency-based UG Curriculum”. MCI has clarified that the Competency Based Undergraduate Curriculum will be implemented from August 2019, i.e. MBBS batch admitted in first year. Batches admitted and studying currently in MBBS shall continue with existing Curriculum.

According to the apex medical regulator, competency-based Medical Education provides an effective outcome-based strategy where various domains of teaching including teaching-learning methods and assessment form the framework of competencies. Keeping this objective as the core ingredient, the Medical Council of India with the help of a panel of experts drawn from across the country laid the basic framework for the revised undergraduate medical curriculum.

  1. WHEN IT COMES TO ATTAINING SKILLS ACUMEN ONE HA TO PROVE THEIR WORTH BY PROVING SET STANDARDS. WHETHER IT\’S FOR POST OF PILOT , PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALLER. HAVING DEGREE DOESN\’T REALLY PROVE THE AMOUNT OF KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS ONE HAS ATTAINED . AND THOSE WHO ARE REALLY GOOD ,NEED NOT WORRY TO TAKE UP ANY STANDARD COMPITAVE TESTS I HAVE A STRONG REASON TO SAY . FOR EXAMPLE BEING A SON OR DAUGHTER OF A FACULTY MEMBERS OR SOME OR THE POLITICIANS CHILDREN THEY ARE GIVEN OR GETTING MUCH SUPPORT / HELP , INCLUDING THE EXCESS OF MARKS IN INTERNAL ASSESSMENTS, PRACTICAL EXAMS AND VIVOVOSE. .. AND THESE PEOPLE WHEN IT COMES TO PASSING STANDARD COMPITAVE TESTS / EXAMS CONDUCTED BY AIIMS, PGI CHANDIGARH, MAMIPAL , CMC, NIMAHS , JIPMAR AND EVEN NEET NOT TO BE SEEN ANY NEAR THE ONE WHO HAS PASSED WITH OUT ANY BIG NUMBERS. IN ONE THE RECENT UNIVERSITY PRACTICAL EXAMS , THE CANDITATE BELONGS TO HIGHLY DOMINANT POLITICIANS FAMILY MEMBERS WAS COUPLE QUESTIONS BY THE EXAMINEERS . SOON AFTER THE EXAMS ,THE INTERNAL EXAMINER GET A PHONE CALL , ASKING HIM , WHAT WAS THE NEED TO SO MANY QUESTIONS ? . THIS IS HOW THE INFLUENCENTIAL PEOPLE NOT ONLY PASS THEIR EXAMS AND EXCESSIVE MARKS , WITH WHICH THEY OCCUPY BEST OF ADMINSTRATIVE POSTS LIKE VICE-CHANCELLOR, DIRECTOR OF THE MEDICAL EDUCATION, DEAN DIRECTOR OF VARIOUS MEDICAL COLLEGES ACROSS THE COUNTRY . THESE GUYS NOT ONLY FREAKOUT POWER POSITION POST PRIVILEGES AND PAISA AND HELP THEIR CLAN . IT IS WELL ORGANISED MAFIA . I AM BEING FAMILIAR WITH SUCH NASTY THINGS , TRYING TO BRING AWARENESS AMONGST OTHERS . THOSE WHO THINK I AM WRONG , NEED NOT WORRY , CAN JUST DELETE THIS MESSAGE . THIS IS FLATFORM TO MAKE MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL TO BE AWARE OF SUCH THINGS HAPPENING IN DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE COUNTRY . I NEITHER IN FAVOUR OR AGAINST ANY BODY . THIS IS BEING NOBLE PROFESSION , GOOD GUYS SHALL FLORISH AND BAD SHOULD VANISH / PERISH . Please go through indroductry chapters of BAILEY AND LOVE TO KNOW ABOUT ETHICS . PROMOTING WRONG THINGS CAN NEVER BE A RIGHT THING .

  2. What nonsense is going on in this country.After passing such a hardest course like MBBS in India,students have to pass proficiency test.what a cruelty

  3. INCOMPITANT PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT COMPITEBCY EXAMS ? WHAT A JOKE , THE DEGREES ARE GIVEN LIKE FREEBIES. MBBS IS COUSE , ONE HAS UNDEGO EXTENSIVE TRAINING IN A RIGHT MANNER . LOITERING AROUND THE CORRIDORS OF COLLEGE & HOSPITAL MEANS NOTHING , INFACT IT IS CRIMINAL WASTE OF TIME. THE PRIME TIME OF FORMATIVE YEARS OF LIFE . I AM MORE 70 % OF THE MEDICAL COLLEGES ACROSS THE COUNTRY THE ENTIRE ACADEMICS ARE OF VERY POOR QUALITY ,ONE CAN CALL SUBSTANDARD . I AM SURE WHEN IT COMES TO CLEARING A STANDARD EXAM LIKE USMLE – HARDLY 5% INDIANS ARE CAPABLE OF CLEARING IT. UNLESS COMMON EXIT SCREENING TESTS BOTH IN THEORY AND PARTICAL ARE HELD ON PAR WITH USMLE , HAVING ANY NUMBER OF ILL TRAINED DOCTORS IS MORE OF A LIABILITY TO OUR COUNTRY . I AM SURE NO GOVERNMENT , NO COLLEGE ARE READY TO OR WILLING TO CONDUCT SUCH SCREENING TESTS. INDIA HAS BECOME A GARBAGE PRODUCING FACTOR OF PROFESSIONAL COURSES . HAVING ANY NUMBER OF SUBSTANDARD DOCTORS IS OF NO USE .

  4. India do not need USMLE qualified doctors. India needs more of basic doctors. Those who wants to qualify USMLE can do it by their own effort. The curriculum should focus more on making basic doctor not consultants.

  5. I do not understand what do u mean. USMLE is also meant for basic doctors to enable them to practice in USA. The article mainly for the delay in not revising standard of medical education from 1994 onwards. I hope u understand now.

  6. You are absolutely right on doctor sahib.. The mci just wanted to make money from private colleges and target foreign students.. Even Indians will fail miserably in exit exam
