More than 100 PG Medicos of Coimbatore Medical College boycott duties
Coimbatore: Over 100 PG medical students of Coimbatore Medical College Hospital boycotted duties for a second day on Thursday to raise various demands including the provision of proper accommodation, food and stipend.
The PG students stated that they will not join their respective duties till their demands are fulfilled. The protest is likely to hit services at the hospital.
These issues have been coupled with the shortage of staff at the hospital as 150 final year MBBS students of the institution have not joined for duty at CMCH as house surgeons as expected.
Medical Dialogues team had earlier reported that after the house surgeons were relieved of the additional two months of compulsory residential internship, the postgraduate medical students at Coimbatore Medical College and Hospital had staged a protest demanding a reduction in workload.
