False Representation as Professors: Govt Doctors to BOYCOTT MCI Inspections


False Representation as Professors: Govt Doctors to BOYCOTT MCI Inspections

Chennai: Doctors working with the state medical colleges in the state are up and arms against the state, denouncing its alleged practice of forcing them appear as senior professors during the MCI inspection, while the state is once again falling behind in filling its vacant faculty posts.

The government doctors further alleged that in a bid to renew ‘permission’ for continuing MBBS courses in many of its 22 medical colleges, the state department has allegedly misled the Medical Council of India (MCI) by presenting associate doctors as professors for five years.

The matter came to the notice on Friday when Tamil Nadu Government Doctors Association launched a “non-cooperation” protest ahead of inspections by the MCI.

During the protest, Dr K Senthil, Association President, declared that if the Directorate of Medical Education forced the associate professors to pose as professors for the day again, the government doctors will boycott the upcoming inspections in government medical colleges.

He further pointed out to the vacant posts of professors at medical colleges as per which more than 500 of the 1,020 professor posts in the 22 medical colleges are unfilled.

Adding that this deceitfulness may lead to de-recognition of colleges, he told TOI, “Every year, assistant and associate professors are posted as ‘professors’ in these colleges for a day. They appear before the inspection committee and return to their regular posts a day after inspection.”

“This fraudulence won’t happen again even it means that the state medical colleges have to lose recognition,” Dr Senthil stated.

Meanwhile, On the issue of shortage of the faculty at medical colleges, the Director of Medical Education Dr A Edwin Joe admitted that the process for promotions was halted five years ago when the government found anomalies in several promotions.

“We have now prepared a revised list. It has sent to the health department for approval. We will fill all posts by month-end,” he told the daily.

However, the demand to accelerate the promotion process is pending within the authorities for the last five years. On this, Association Secretary Dr N Ravishankar added, “In 2017, when association told the government doctors would boycott inspections, the government promised to work on resignations. That did not happen.”

“The shortage is high in newer colleges of rural areas. We have an adequate number of qualified doctors, but the state has not promoted them as professors. In most cases, doctors’ salary doesn’t even change much despite promotion. More than 200 associate professors who have worked for nearly 25 years retired without promotions,” he pointed out while talking to the TOI.

  1. WHY MEDICAL EDUCATION AND FACULTY UNDER SCANNER ?
    India has volume of Medical Teachers but our educational system is poor and unaccounted, under scanner of law and society I would not have written an article if I was younger, as I was at the mercy of many of Senior professors who many times lives to spend Time and make as much as possible out of the weaknesses in the system, THANKS TO MEDICAL COUNCIL OF INDIA WHO FOR MORE THAN 2 DECADES COUNTED THE HEADS FORGOT TO MEASURE WHAT IS INSIDE OF THE SYSTEM, ROTTING WITH INEFFICIENCY VEXED INTERESTS OF TEACHER AND MANAGEMENTS WHO THOUGHT PRODUCING EXAMINATION RESULTS WAS ONLY THEIR DUTY. In spite of many matters there are wonderful teachers and many private educational institute with competent people as administrators made a great progress However, our struggles start when we question what is our role as Teachers, Many OF SENIORS THINK AND say students are entirely responsible for the failures, MAKING A TIME TABLE FOR JUNIORS WAS ONLY ACADEMICS WHICH IS ALSO LINKED WITH SELF INTERESTING AS SPENT MANY YEARS DOING AND TEACHING FEW THINGS, AS THERE WAS NO ACCOUNTABILITY AND RESPECTED AS GURUS OF????? I totally disagree that we as have a role to ascertain, Ok it will serve the purpose for some Time but the Institutes and colleges collapse very soon than later it is exactly happening in many Engineering colleges with no accountability on Students and very few or inefficient teachers same phenomenon will encroach on the Medical Colleges, as many Doctors we produce will certainly become non performers or even dangerous too lacking basic life support skills. However, we cannot make every Teacher or Student better still we can wish to make a little better thing just think deeply about the subject matter, take on more challenging work, and even pursue careers in a particular field of study. NEET has become a reality and buying and selling of the medical seats to a halt and it is unfortunate teachers are no more counted as people of integrity and ethical and so the implementation of biometry, the government has decided to implement punching system in medical colleges as per the MCI direction. The authorities have started taking attendance of doctors in most medical colleges besides collecting their Adhar details. Bio metric fingerprint machines would be installed in medical colleges once all the faculty members register with Aadhar details. The details of faculty would be linked these bio metric attendance devices. The system besides tracking the attendance of faculty in medical colleges would also end the practice of ghost medical faculty and absenteeism,
