32 Medical colleges might get debarred by MCI

Around 4,000 medical students in 32 new private colleges might find their institutes disqualified as these have failed to pass standard checks.

These are among 34 colleges approved by a Supreme Court-appointed oversight committee in May 2016, but debarred by the country’s medical education regulator for failing to meet required standards.

The committee, headed by retired judge RM Lodha, had overruled the Medical Council of India’s (MCI) decision with the condition that if these colleges fail another inspection, they cannot admit students for two years.

Subsequently these colleges admitted their first batch — 3,957 students — last summer. These students had cleared the national eligibility cum entrance test (NEET). Rules stipulate that these students — studying for their bachelors of medicine (MBBS) — should be moved to other medical colleges if their institutes get disqualified. But experts feel such an effort will be challenging.

“You can’t stretch facilities to accommodate so many students in other approved colleges. This will hamper studies of the students,” said KK Aggarwal, national president of the Indian Medical Association.

“If the oversight committee accepts the MCI report, it will have to address the concerns of students admitted to these colleges.”

    Are these colleges new colleges. What about old colleges like Chintpurni Medical College Pathankot Punjab who has failed MCI inspection and MCI has recommended not to give new batch.

    Dear Sirs,

    If these barred medical colleges are unfit, what is the future of students who have already been admitted for the first year. Without proper faculty or infrastructure is it fair to continue in such colleges. MCI should take steps to admit such unfortunate students in colleges which are fit according to their guidelines.

    This is the best news that I have read in the past few months. Many of these institutions do not have even the basic infrastructure, patient intake and qualified teachers to conduct undergraduate classes. These’bogus’ institutions must be penalized in crores for false promises. They are churning out poor quality doctors who will be a hazard to patients and to our country.
    In fact many more institutions need to come under the hammer.
