Read below expert insights of the PMCH Principal.
Careers360: How is India’s current medical education scenario?
Prof. S.N. Sinha: India’s current medical education scenario is in a very bad shape. Bookish knowledge and mechanical dependency has increased in medical education. There is a lack of clinical sense in medical graduates. They all depend on investigations.
Careers360: What are the possible reasons behind such a scenario?
Prof. S.N. Sinha: This is due to lack of exposure of clinical work in hospitals after graduation. They do not take interest in the hospital work during internship period. They are engaged in the preparation for PG admission, resulting in lack of clinical activities and knowledge and have only bookish knowledge.
Careers360: What advice would you to give for improving the scenario? Please elaborate.
Prof. S.N. Sinha: It is advisable to introduce a residency programme in medical education before appearing for the PG examination. Residency should be divided into two parts; first in the hospital and second in the Primary Health Centre. The duration should be of two years and then a certificate of medical graduation can be issued. During these training period there should be CME Programme followed by Evaluation & Accreditation by a CME-conducting board. In the hospital postgraduate residency should be awarded according to the points awarded in the clinical as well as marks obtained in competitive examination.
