Faridkot, July 11
Amidst the allegations of some private medical colleges not adhering to the Indian Medical Council Act in making the admission in the postgraduate medical courses (MD/MS) and not making adequate payment of stipend to these junior resident doctors, the Board of Governors in Supersession of the Medical Council of India (BoG MCI) has announced to launch an online Student Admission Online Monitoring System.
The objective of this online monitoring system is to ensure faithful adherence to the norms of admissions laid down in the regulations and to promote transparency and accountability in the medical education, reads the letter sent by the BoG MCI to the Principals and Deans of all medical colleges in the state on Friday.
Every medical college has to provide details of the admission of every candidate. These details include his/her All India Rank in NEET-PG-2020, the state rank, percentile score and the amount of the stipend being paid to the junior resident doctor.
As most junior resident doctors, who are pursuing the MD/MS and Post Graduate Medical Diploma courses in private medical colleges, have grouse of them not getting the adequate stipend, the BoG MCI in its letter to all medical colleges on Friday wrote that the postgraduate students undergoing degree/diploma and super-speciality courses are to be paid at par with the stipend being paid to the postgraduate students of the state government medical colleges.
This online monitoring system will start from July 24 for all Broad Specialty postgraduate courses and all medical colleges/institutions must submit the admission details of every postgraduate student by August 10 for Broad Specialty Courses. After August 10, the colleges will not be allowed to enter the details of the students into the Student Admission Online Monitoring System for the current academic year.
No receipt of this information online from the medical colleges within the stipulated time will reflect on the recommendation to be made by the MCI to the Central Government for grant of permission and recognition to the medical college for that academic year and the subsequent academic years, warns the MCI.
The MCI can ask for the supportive documents like caste certificate, details of the NEET-PG exam as and when these are required by the Monitoring Cell, reads the letter.
The MCI has directed colleges that all admission be made only and exclusively through the NEET which was conducted by the National Board of Examination in January this year.
No admission is made beyond the sanctioned intake capacity and no admission is permitted beyond the cut-off date.
