THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: As many as 50 seats each will be increased for MBBS in the Thiruvananthapuram and Kozhikode government medical colleges this academic year, Minister for Health Adoor Prakash has said.
Mr. Prakash told reporters here on Friday that facilities at these medical colleges would be improved to help them cope with the additional students. The government would ensure that the State did not lose the additional seats granted by the Medical Council of India. It had been proposed to hold discussions with self-financing medical college managements soon.
The Minister sought a report on the number of teachers in government medical colleges on finding that certain departments in some colleges were over-staffed, while others were facing staff shortage. The issue of private practice of medical college teachers would be resolved through talks.
One proposal was to lift the ban on private practice on the basis of clear norms. A mechanism would be put in place to ensure that doctors were not skipping work for private practice.
