MALAPPURAM: The first of batch of MBBS students from Government Medical College in Manjeri have started their mandatory House Surgency on Sunday. The service of the 85 young doctors who made the college proud by coming on the top in the state this year, would help resolve the issues related to the shortage of doctors at the medical college. The junior doctors will be posted in the general medicine, pediatric, gynecology, ENT and orthopedic departments according to preferences, said principal Dr M.P. Shashi.

The year-long service of the house surgeons will also reduce the tremendous workload of junior resident doctors at the hospital. At present each department is witnessing huge turnout of patients on a daily basis which is being managed by the resident doctors besides huge fall of resident doctors prior to the medical PG admission tests. At the same time the college is reeling under several infrastructural deficiencies.

 

The facilities of Casualty and Wards are limited and remain same as the erstwhile General Hospital.  There is not enough space to accommodate house surgeons and it lacks facilities for night stay. The house surgeons have to vacate the hostels for the next batch of students when they come.  The college authorities say that the construction works of the hostels and quarters will begin soon. The government had sanctioned `103 crore for the development of the college.
