Hyderabad: As many as 195 medical students of last year in the Government Medical College Nizamabad and Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences, Adilabad will not be able to appear for exit exams or get their licences as these two colleges have not got their recognition for this year.  The students have approached the Telangana Junior Doctors Association as the inspection by the Medical Council of India has been carried out but the recognition has not been granted yet. 

The medical college in Nizamabad was started in 2013 and RIMS, Adilabad in 2008. According to junior doctors, “In the yearly inspection it was found that these two colleges did not have enough faculty or proper infrastructure. In RIMS Adilabad, the faculty is short by 35 per cent and in Nizamabad there is no technical staff for the diagnostic machines and laboratories apart from the professors. Due to this reason, the medical students are unable to learn properly. Also, there is no bedside practice as there are no patients in teaching hospitals.”

 

These reasons have been stated by the MCI in their observations and they want the state government to correct them before granting recognition. But the junior doctors are aggrieved as the failure to get recognition before December 2018 will make them ineligible to apply for NEET 2019 or later obtain the MBBS certificate. The first batch of 2013 will pass out from Nizamabad college in March 2019. The junior doctors are worried that they may lose a year if recognition is not granted to the college in time.
