“qualified quacks,” the Indian Medical Association has said.
In a strongly-worded statement on Saturday, IMA Tamil Nadu chapter president Dr R Gunasekaran and secretary Dr TN Ravisankar said the such ill-trained doctors could mismanage patients causing complications and even deaths.
The need of the hour is to train paramedical or multi-purpose health workers and equip them with the knowledge to identify infectious diseases, insect and animal bites and other illnesses in the earlier stages and refer them to qualified doctors.
“The existing four-and-a-half years of medical education and another year of internship itself is inadequate. It takes another five years for a fully qualified doctor to gain comprehensive knowledge. Compared to this, a BRMS will only be a qualified quack,” the statement said.

NATIONALIZE ALL THE PRIVATE MEDICAL COLLEGES & UPGRADE ALL EXISTING BAMS/BHMS/BUMS COLLEGES TO MBBS & PROVIDE UNIFORM MEDICAL DEGREE IN INDIA
We hereby request to
Hon,President of India,
Hon,Prime minister of India,
Hon, Health Minister of India
& All the Hon, MP’s from Rajyasabha & Loksabha
to seriously think on “Nationalization of Medical Education”…
1)Medical Education should be on the top of priority list of Govt of India..
Privatization of medical education started in 1953,
& now every big politician owns a Medical college & sugar factory.
those who cant own medical college, own BAMS or BHMS colleges..
management quota seats are literally sold.
Medical Education is now market, where those who have lot of money can get admissions
Truly worthy students are deprived from getting medical education, in this Bazar.
Those who invest money for education naturally tries to put out the invested money with interest, they are going to accept freebies & gifts from the Pharma companies, no matter MCI’s Ketan Desai bans it.
True Medical professional needs Empathy, Emotions & Ethics in his heart.
Privatization of Medical Education kept all these words into dictionary
2)Upgrade all the existing BAMS/BHMS/BUMS/BSMS colleges to MBBS & provide them with necessary infrastructure.
Existing BAMS/BHMS/BUMS/BSMS practitioners should be upgraded to MBBS by offering them refreshing course in medicine & pharmacology through CME centers at Taluka/Tehsil level.The CME centers at Taluka/Tehsil level should be provided with recent advances in technology like video conferencing.
3) Government’s job is to provide/ensure proper health care to it’s citizens & not to promote the different pathies, hence AYUSH dept. & CCIM & CCH should be scrapped.
& Uniform scientific medical syllabus should be offered in the Nation,Ayurveda,unani & siddha would be offered as optional subjects.as they have the Indian origin & should be considered as potential resource for research in main stream medicine.
Thanx with Regards
