All-India MBBS entrance from next year

MCI keen on revamping medical education in the country, says Kurnool Medial College Principal
Uniform syllabus and teaching methods to be introduced in medical colleges across country
MD to be reduced from three to two years, rationalisation expected to strengthen teaching

KURNOOL: The all-India entrance to MBBS would come into force in 2012, said Bhavani Prasad, Principal of Kurnool Medical College.

Dr. Prasad, who attended a national-level conference of medical college principals sponsored by the Medical Council of India at New Delhi on March 29, said the council was keen on revamping medical education in the country by introducing a uniform syllabus and teaching methods.

Uniform syllabus

Medical colleges across the country would follow the syllabus framed by the Medical Council of India.

Also, the Medical Council of India noticed that the house surgeon training failed to produce the desired results as students were more interested in preparing for the post-graduate entrance examination during the period.

To avoid the clash, the Medical Council of India has suggested PG entrance soon after the MBBS examination and house surgeon training later.

After 2017, a final examination would be held after internship as house surgeon and the marks would be counted to the ranking for PG admissions.

To further rationalise and restructure the PG courses, the MCI has proposed introduction of a two-year master's degree course in various disciplines in place of diplomas and in case of diploma holders seeking to attend MD course, only one year additional training would be needed as the master's course would deem to be part of the MD course.

Reduction in course

The MD course would be reduced from three to two years. The rationalisation is expected to train more hands for teaching.

Also, unlike in the past, the theoretical and clinical teaching would go hand in hand. When anatomy of heart was taught, heart diseases would also be dealt with simultaneously.

Moreover, the students would be given exposure to primary health centres during the course so that they would be well-versed with the basic diseases.

Every MBBS student has to attend a two-month foundation course before starting the medical course by undergoing orientation in computers and other subjects.
