KGMOA objects to medical course

Dr Ketan Desai, president of MCI, the newly-elected president of World Medial Association was in the City recently and had announced to start this course in June 2010 at notified rural areas.

Dr Ravindra, president of KGMOA said that such courses will introduce doctors with half-knowledge into the society.

However the association welcomed union health minister Ghulam Nabi Azad's proposal to allot extra marks for MBBS students who would work in rural areas.  According to the health minister, any MBBS doctor who serves in the village for one year will be given 10 percent marks in National Entrance Examination, two years - 20 percent marks and three years - 30 percent marks and 50 percent reservation for a Diploma in MD. The association has submitted a memorandum, questioning the relevance of the BRMS course.
