From Dr.Vtharavath’s Mail to TargetPG Google Group
Please note : We are of the opinion that this information has to reach the medicos urgently. We will discuss the issues one by one in separate threads in the coming days. Till then, do read all these and be aware of what is going to happenning in your profession
I request your good self to go through the attached files before attending the IMA-MCI meeting tomorrow.
While studying the MBBS restructuring proposal by MCI, one can very well see that there is a deliberate attempt from the part of MCI to make the future MBBS course almost equivalent to that of BRHC Course. Also kindly go through the syllabus of Pharm-D Course conducted by Rajiv Gandhi University. Please go through the contents of the various subjects shown in the syllabus. I have quoted some of the relevant subjects from their syllabus in this mail. Please don’t look at the name of the subject and conclude. I am sure you will understand the situation of an MBBS doctor in the future. I once again request you to, at least, go through the contents of the subjects given in the attached file-“pharm_d-syllabus.pdf”- which I have mentioned in this letter, before the IMA-MCI meeting tomorrow. Evaluate to what depth the Pharm-D student will study about the diseases and its managements. One cannot expect the entire MBBS graduates will get an opportunity to do Post graduation. So in front of a Pharm-D doctor, an MBBS doctor will be nothing when the knowledge is compared.
Also I have given few suggestions in the second file-“my suggestions”- which can be considered during the restructuring of the MBBS curriculum. Please don’t support the proposed suggestion by MCI which will definitely degrade our profession.
In the future the old MBBS of four and half years and the new proposed MBBS of three and half years will not be having any distinction. They will be considered as same. Hence if the MCI decides to carry on with the present proposal, then the name of the proposed MBBS has to be changed and I suggest to call it as
MBBS (LE) —LE means Least Edition or Lower Edition
Also the following points may be noted:
The current doctor population ratio in India and in some of the other countries are given by the MBBS restructuring proposal and is given below:
The current doctor population ratio in India is 1:1700 when compared to a world average of 1.5: 1000. The committee came to a consensus that targeted doctor population ratio should be 1: 1000 by 2031.
|Table 1 : Doctor population ratio around the world|
But it is not clearly specified whether the number of doctors in other braches of medicines like Ayush, Homeo,Sidha etc are counted while preparing this table ! ! If not, it is a disgrace to those doctors working in other braches of medicines as it means that only the modern medicine doctors are capable of serving the patients effectively…..
If one compare other countries and blindly adopt the systems and statistics there, then the other branches of medicines like Ayush,Homeo, Sidha etc. must be banned in India as these branches of medicines are not allowed in most of these countries ….Why can’t we adopt that set up too???
So I request you to take necessary steps to save our profession and our community. Kindly go through the attached files..
