Will not be liable if contract COVID during exams: Maharashtra Medical Colleges collect undertakings from students
Maharastra: The Medical Colleges in Maharashtra have instructed the students to submit undertakings, confirming that the colleges will not be responsible if they get infected by COVID-19 during the examinations.
Previously the Maharashtra University of Health Sciences (MUHS) had given the schedule for the PG medico and MBBS examination according to the guidelines of Medical Council of India. Now many of the medical college authorities have instructed the students to submit a declaration.
This comes following the announcement of UG and PG Medical examinations by MUHS. Medical Dialogues team had earlier reported that MUHS had already released the time table for the theory part for final year students. The UG and PG examination are scheduled to be held from July 15 onwards or from August.
The issue of exams for medical students is sub-judice in Bombay High Court. MUHS, MCI and other respondents have been asked to file an affidavit by July 31 and clarify whether quarantine will be necessary for students coming from other areas.
