Tighter norms for inspection of medical colleges soon

New Delhi: The days of unscrupulous assessment of medical colleges by inspectors of the Medical Council of India could soon be over.

For the first time, members of the MCI or its inspectors would not know before hand which colleges they are to assess on a particular day till the morning of the inspection.

In order to put an end to the practice of fake medical colleges being tipped off before inspection so that they can put in place fake faculty, false patients and hired infrastructure like libraries, the six-member governing body of the MCI has tied up with the Indraprastha Institute of Information Technology to create a special software that will randomly choo- se which colleges will be inspected on a particular day and who the inspectors would be.

The procedure was given the go ahead by Union health minister Ghulam Nabi Azad a week ago and 8-10 medical colleges have already been inspected this way. Under the new procedure, the inspectors are given a sealed envelope on the morning of the inspection, while on the way to the airport or station which contains information on which college they have to inspect and which state it is in.

This way, medical colleges don’t have time in advance to prepare for the inspection and the MCI team gets the real picture of how the college is being run.


MCI govening body member Dr Ranjit Roychoudhury told TOI that 130 more inspections will be done this way. “False patients and faculty members are at present brought in hordes in buses on the morning of the inspection by event managers for those who run the colleges to show the inspection team that they have the required faculty, manpower and infrastructure to run a medical college.”
