Misrepresentation during Inspection: 9 Medical Faculty Suspended by Medical Council of India


Misrepresentation during Inspection: 9 Medical Faculty Suspended by Medical Council of India

After thorough perusal of the documents by the committee officials, it was found that the doctors had been shown as working at the college before 2006 whereas the college was started in June 2006.

Kerela: Taking stringent cognisance of false representation by Medical practitioners for the purpose of  the Medical Council of India inspection of a Kerala medical college, the Ethics Committee of Medical Council of India (MCI) has removed the name of NINE doctors from the Indian Medical Register (IMR) for a year.

The decision comes after the Council found severe discrepancies and mis-representation regarding the Inspection of Kannur Medical College in Anjarakandy. Hindu reports that a complaint, in this regard was  forwarded by the Chairman of the PG Committee in 2014, pointing out to irregularities committed by certain medical colleges in showing their faculty strength during MCI inspection.

The council in its investigation into Kannur Medical College, went through the documentation submitted by these 9 medical faculty who claimed to have served the college continuously for specific periods. They were also summoned by the MCI ethics committee to hear their submissions. 

After thorough perusal of the documents by the committee officials, it was found that the doctors had been shown as working at the college before 2006 whereas the college was started in June 2006.

Holding the doctors guilty of “providing wrong and misleading information to MCI for the purpose of assessment at the Medical College,” the Ethics committee directed the state council towards removal of their names form the Indian Medical register.  These doctors will not be able to practice for one year.

The order identified the doctors as P.G. Anandakumar, V.K. Valsalan, Sebastian Zacharias, Narayana Prasad, K.M. Ashokan, C.K. Rajamma, P. Sridevi, K.V. Shivashankar and P. Mohamed Ibrahim, reports The Hindu. All these doctors were registered under Travancore Cochin Medical Council.

  1. When it comes to other states , some colleges are really substandard, with few patients ….wonder how they get 150-250 MBBS recognised seats , lots of pg seats… Really witnessed power of money , politics and shame on MCI to be corrupted…. In Kerala Kannur Anjarakandy is little bit better in terms of patient op ,ip than those above mentioned….

    When principal gives fake service certificate and the medical faculty submits the same as being genuine, both should be punished. Already there are many private practitioners acting as professors and conducting speciality and super speciality medical courses in many medical private colleges without any problem for years.The only surprise is that now MCI is serious about this type of fraud. Let us hope that MCI will follow same principle in private medical colleges of other states also.

  3. The stringent action needs to be taken against the management. The doctors are after all mere dispensable pawns in this game which is played by the managements.
    For obvious reasons the managements wont be touched.

  4. What is the action taken against the management by mci ?!

  5. The Doctors working in many priate Medcail colleges are helpless one has to dance to the Music of the Manments the real problem is many private Medccial collegeare the mangments want to administer with power brokers it is our own Doctors greedy for money never follow rules only they live and earn huge sums by pleasing the managments, It is unfortunate the system is getting rottoen what is the use of suspensening the Doctors find out the real culprits, I have worked with many seniors and retired professors from Government medical colleges who come to college to make money and they say they have no rules, taking few classes is a big responsiblity, hardly come 2 to 3 day in a week baby sitting enjoying the hospitality is the only duty they do if one one is local person it a game of politics no body can match them ( Certainly not all Faculty ) The present situation o medcal edcauion is deplorable Hope the MCI finds some solutions to improve the Medcail edcauion, however no bdy correct the immoral teachers because we respect them just for age not for any contributions
