    What exact modification is expected? curriculum should include more practicals hand on before final year degree exam. it is observed student miss internship and prepare for PG NEET. teaching rare disease and syndrome should be optional. log book for hand on surgical and medical work should be there. retired teaching staff should be enrolled for honorary visiting faculty on lecture basis or as examiner upto age 70.

    The crux of problem of effective medical education is a complex situation which requires a multipronged approach.
    1.Psychological tuning of the medical students who are the cream of competitive examinations for admissions to MBBS course.
    2.Addressing the real shortage of teaching faculty by evolving policies to plan to fill the gap.
    3.If the above is not addressed i am sure many medical colleges will fall short of teaching staff
    leading to disastrous consequences.
    4.If the website monthly reporting of the staff pattern on their colleges websites the medical colleges including the government owned may fall short of THE IDEAL SITUATIONS leading to closure of the institutions as it is evident in Kerala state.
    The committee appointed should have a HOLISTIC approach to keep the modern medical education back on rails
    for yielding desired results.
    OR ELSE IT will be a part of another INSPECTOR RAJ.
