MCI asked to postpone PG medical exams
This comes in light of the fact that students are engaged in COVID-19 duties and they do not have enough time to prepare; besides, some doctors have even contracted the disease.
Mumbai: With many medicos stuck with PG duty or having contracted COVID themselves, objections are now coming to the Medical Council of India (MCI) on its imposed deadline in holding the PG medical final exams amidst the current scenario.
Medical Dialogues had earlier reported about the MCI order whereby all medical colleges varsities were directed to complete the University Examinations for PG Board Specialities by 30th June 2020.
Joining the trail, over 900 final-year PG medical students in Maharashtra have now submitted a letter to the Council demanding cancellation of pending Summer exams including four theory and practical papers. Previously, eliminating the confusion over the UG and PG medical examinations due to the coronavirus lockdown, the Maharashtra Governor had granted permission to conduct all these exams from July 15 onwards as proposed by the Maharashtra University of Health Sciences (MUHS).
