5 Self-Finance Med Colleges Fail to Get MCI Nod Again

Image

With the Medical Council of India (MCI) continuing to refuse approval of five self-financing medical colleges citing infrastructure defects and shortage of teaching faculty, the wait for more MBBS seats under government quota continues.

Of the 13 self-financing medical colleges in Tamil Nadu, MCI denied approval for SRM Medical College, Trichy, Annapoorna Medical College and Hospital, Salem, Madha Medical College and Hospital, Thandalam, Chennai, Melmaruvathur Adiparasakthi Institute Medical Science and Research and Sri Muthukumaran Medical College. Each of these colleges had applied for 150 seats.

Speaking to Express, Dr C V Bhirmanandam, vice-president, MCI, said approval was denied to all the five colleges because of infrastructure deficiencies and shortage of teaching faculty. “They did not satisfy MCI norms, and there were many flaws in the operation of these colleges. So MCI denied approval for 2015-2016, too. The message was conveyed to the official from the Directorate of Medical Education during a meeting that was held on Tuesday,” he added.

A senior official in the Directorate of Medical Education told Express that they were not expecting these seats to receive the sanction this year. “These colleges had applied last year but then too, failed to get recognition. So we were not actually expecting these seats for this academic year as well,” the official said.

Had these been cleared, there would have been an additional 97 seats each from SRM Medical College, Annapoorna Medical College and Hospital, and Melmaruvathur Adiparasakthi Institute Medical Science and Research, and 75 each from Madha Medical College and Hospital and Sri Muthukumaran Medical College under government quota.

The current batch of students are already battling seat allotment with the previous batch of Plus Two candidates. The second phase of counselling for self-financing colleges will be conducted on July 25 and the third phase on September 30 as per the Supreme Court order.

Meanwhile, the fate of ESIC Medical College in Chennai is yet to be decided.

Tiruchi medical college allowed to admit 50 more students

In a big relief to the government and the Directorate of Medical Education, which has set in motion the process of medical admission, the Medical Council of India (MCI) has renewed its permission to K. A. P. Viswanatham Government Medical College (KAPVGMC) here for admitting 50 more students during the academic year 2015-16.

With this, the decks have been cleared to admit 50 more students in addition to the existing 100 students in MBBS course being offered by the KAPV Government Medical College.

The intake for the course was increased from 100 to 150 in 2013-14.

A letter to this effect has been sent to the DME and M.K. Muralidharan, Dean, KAPV Government Medical College, Tiruchi.

He told The Hindu on Monday that the MCI team that had inspected the college a few months ago was satisfied with the facilities available at the college for offering 50 more seats. Most of the shortcomings and suggestions raised by the team had been taken care of.

Besides increasing the number of class rooms and examination halls, the college had set up audio visual facilities in class rooms as per the MCI norms.

There has been a substantial increase in number of doctors attached to the college and hospital; it had gone up to 216 from 150. Similarly, nine more doctors had taken charge in hospital attached to the college, Dr. Muralidharan added.

New buildings come up at government hospital, medical college

Four new buildings were inaugurated for the benefit of staff and students at the KAP Viswanatham Government Medical College Hospital (KAPVGMC) and Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Government Hospital (MGMGH) attached to it on Friday. Chief minister J Jayalalithaa inaugurated the buildings through video conferencing.

The medical college, which was established in 1997 with 100 MBBS seats, was sanctioned additional 50 seats in 2013-14. However, the recognition to the seats was put on hold, after officials from the medical council of India (MCI) found that the facilities at the institute did not meet the specifications of the council. To cope up with the demands of the increased number of students in the undergraduate course, the college has had to improve its facilities.

A two-storey new examination hall which has a total area of 1264.60 square metres was inaugurated on Friday. The building, which came up at a revised cost of Rs 1.69 crore, can accommodate 150 students at a time. The old examination hall will continue to function.

Residential quarters for medical professors and non-teaching staff working in both the college and the hospital have also come up. Constructed at the revised cost of Rs 7.53 crore, the quarters can soon house 24 medical professors and 36 non-teaching staff.

In addition, residential quarters for doctors have been constructed at cost of Rs 3.22 crore to accommodate 90 post-graduate doctors and was inaugurated on Friday. The building has four floors including the ground floor, with an office room and dining room on the ground and first floors respectively and bedrooms attached with bathrooms on third and fourth floors.

Sanitary workers at the hospital will also get new accommodation. Residential quarters specifically for sanitary workers was inaugurated on the MGMGH campus. Eighteen sanitary workers are expected to occupy the two-storey building.

All the buildings, except the sanitary workers' quarters, were constructed at revised costs.

18 CCTV cameras installed at super-specialty block of MGMGH

To ensure safety of patients, the Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Government Hospital (MGMGH) here on Wednesday brought the Rs 100-crore super-specialty and trauma care block under the surveillance of CCTV cameras. In the first phase, 18 cameras have been installed at vulnerable places, including paediatric intensive care unit (PICU), in the six-storey building.

Inaugurated in February 2014 by chief minister J Jayalalithaa to provide specialty treatment to the poor people, the 600-bedded block has been equipped with the surveillance facility now.

The cameras have been installed on the first, second, third, fourth and fifth floors where seven, five, one, four and one cameras were installed respectively. There are three cameras at the main entrance of the block. The installation of a camera outside PICU on the fifth floor would be a crucial one.

Dean Dr MK Muralitharan would monitor the footages from his chamber in the new block. "Taking into consideration the need for ensuring safety and security to both the patients and the hospital, we have installed cameras in 18 places in the first phase. The cameras would be placed in more places in rest of the wards in the block in the next phase," Dr Muralitharan told reporters.

The new super-specialty block houses nine departments, including orthopaedics, neuro surgery, neurology, nephrology, urology, cardiology, cardio thoracic and plastic surgery.

Though the purpose of the super specialty block was yet to reach the public due to the delay in appointing doctors and getting high-end equipment, the block is being used for providing regular treatment to the patients.

MGMGH had been equipped with the CCTV facility for the first time in July 2013 after some serious incidences of child thefts raised questions on the safety and security to the patients and the new born babies. Unfortunately, most of them remained unused due to official apathy.

Police sources said that two cases of child theft are pending with the government hospital police station since 2011. Dr Muralitharan said steps were being taken to repair 18 CCTV cameras which remain unused on the hospital premises.

AIIMS dream turns sour

After petitioning the State and Central governments on its demand for setting up the All India Institute of Medical Sciences in Tiruchi, the Federation of Consumer and Service Organisations has sought an appointment with the President for its members to surrender their Electors Photo Identity Cards as a mark of protest. City residents, the federation pointed out, have been fighting for setting up the AIIMS in Tiruchi since 2005, but the city missed out on two early proposals. Both the Dravidian parties, AIADMK and DMK, had expressed their support and assured to set up the hospital in the city. But it was shocking that Tiruchi was not part of the places shortlisted for setting up the AIIMS. The city is also being deprived and neglected in terms of various other projects and introduction of rail and air services. While political parties consider Tiruchi the ideal location for conducting conferences, they were neglecting the city when it came to sanctioning development projects, the federation regretted and hence the move to surrender the EPIC cards to the President.
