Ranchi: The Jharkhand government has appointed teaching doctors as faculty staff in the new medical colleges in the state.
The government aims to improve the quality of medical education in the state as well as encouraging more students toward pursuing a medical education.
The government conducted walk-in interviews for interested candidates and ultimately offered jobs to 43 professors and associate professors on October 20th. The hiring is on a contractual basis and is for an initial period of two years. The three newly opened medical colleges where the new faculty have been appointed are located in Dumka, Hazaribagh and Daltonganj.
The admission process was stopped in these colleges last year by the National Medical Commission due to lack of adequate faculty and infrastructure.
It was only after the state government tried to fulfil the requirements that the NMC allowed admission into the new medical college in Dumka recently but the not in the rest two.
"It's good to learn that many faculty members have been appointed, raising possibility of students getting admission to those medical colleges," Ranchi MP Seth told The Telegraph.
Besides fulfilling aspirations of the deserving students, these medical colleges are also expected to cater to the people of those areas by treating them locally so that they need not come to Ranchi for treatment, he added.
"Now that 36 of the 43 faculty members have been recruited for these new colleges, we are hopeful admission would also be allowed in the remaining two in Hazaribagh and Daltonganj," said another faculty member who did not like to be quoted.
Though the students lost the chance last year, they would now get the benefit if these colleges are allowed to admit them, he further said, adding 200 medical seats mean a lot for aspiring students.
