    Each district one medical college aim- Within 10 years India going to have stand by doctors

    The central govt to plan to have Each district one medical college across the country, the moves are already on the anvil and this would mean India would be ably equipped with best medical attention for any case or cause and this aim would also transform India which is going to have stand by doctors in future. We have seen during the Pandemic and covid treatments, there were shortage of doctors and the country took decision to have wholesome presence of doctors of all discipline and thus this move would usher in more medical seats in future and there is no dearth for performing NEET rankers to get the medical seats of their choice in coming years.

    Yes. The number of doctors available in our country is less than required. So more colleges are welcome. But there is a problem in India that once the students get qualified they never wanted to work in rural areas and they want to stay in cities only. That is why we see more qualified doctors in cities and no doctors in villages. The government is opening hospitals and posting doctors in rural areas also but these doctors will never stay in those villages. They stay in the cities and will have their private clinics there. This problem is to be sorted out and the doctors should be asked to stay in the place of their posting and see that the villagers will get the required medical aid. If it is done, definitely having more doctors will serve the purpose. I think the government should ensure this and see that villagers will also get the required medical assistance from qualified people.

    In Uttar Pradesh, one medical college in each district scheme is already there for the last few years and a number of new medical colleges have been opened in many smaller cities. Initially, the local District Hospital is made the nucleus of such medical colleges. Also, this scheme is being implemented in Public-Private Partnership (PPP) model. A big land is allotted to the entrepreneurs at government prices and then buildings and infrastructure are created by the private companies. A certain percentage of seats remain under the government quota for which the government's fee structure is followed but there are seats under the management quota also for which the private sector charges a different fee structure. That way, the admission to the government quota seats will have to be through the NEET channel only.

    Since the government is not in a position to even think about abolition of caste-based reservation policy etc., they are trying to satisfy the non-reservation section of the society by increasing the number of seats. Also, many politicians are behind the businesses of education in the private sector. It is a very profitable business.

    Let us encourage each other in sharing knowledge.

    But there are states like Telangana wherein such arrangements were not made.

    It is correct that we require more number of doctors in our country, especially in the rural areas. During the corona pandemic, we realised that in an emergency situation a large number of doctors are required. Opening new medical colleges would definitely help in the matter but at the same time, we have to depute the new doctors to villages or remote areas for serving there for at least 4-5 years before giving them a chance to move to urban areas. Doctors have a very important role to play in society and if they remain in urban areas and have resistance to moving to the village or interior areas then this would create a big problem for healthcare in the remote places. This is a very important aspect and is to be taken care by the administrative machinery.

    With the surge of the population, it would be better if we could provide better medical facilities to our people living in the villages. Though the number of medical graduates are on the rise but still there is a crisis of attending doctors especially in the villages due to the fact that the passed out medical graduates have different plannings such as persuasion of MD, MS course or some post graduation diplomas living in cities where such provisions are available. On completion of these courses, they would like to stay in cities for their better scopes of advancements which they would lack otherwise living in the rural areas. Unless they change their mentalities for serving the ailing patients wholeheartedly living in the rural areas, there would not be any perceptible improvement of attending doctors in the villages. The government should also take an appropriate step in this regard such their MD or MS degree would not valid unless they put their service for a minimum period of three years at least in the rural sectors.

    In the process of increasing the number of colleges, the government should not allow the quality of education to come down. We have seen the deterioration of standards in Engineering education when the doors were opened to many engineering colleges. Many colleges were opened without even having qualified engineers and over a period of time, those colleges were closed. The students who came out of these colleges were not on par with students from other good colleges. This sort of thing should not happen in medical education also. It is welcome to start new colleges and give chance to more students to become doctors. Before giving approval, the government should ensure that all required facilities are provided and all required standards are maintained. Then only we can see good quality doctors serving the people. We should appreciate the efforts of UP in establishing more colleges for studying MBBS.
