Goa Medical College seeks approval for 10 super speciality courses
Goa: The Goa Medical College is seeking the apex medical regulator's approval to grant it permission to begin 10 super speciality courses.
The medical college had reportedly applied to the Medical Council of India (MCI), however, with the recent dissolution of the erstwhile regulator by the National Medical Commission (NMC), it is clear that the action on the application will be taken by the NMC only.
The three-year duration doctorate of medicine (DM) courses GMC plans to start are cardiology, cardiothoracic surgery, neurology, neurosurgery, paediatric surgery, plastic surgery, nephrology, urology, cardiac anaesthesia and endocrinology.
The regulator authorities will conduct necessary inspections to confirm whether the college has the potentiality to hold super speciality courses. Once the permission is granted, these courses will be introduced in GMC from the academic year 2021-22 if possible.
