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.

Dear Praful, PWD is not a vertical reservation. It is a reservation given within your Category. For example lets say if you belong to General Categor, you will be eligible for General Category - PWD reservation. But you do not get separate reservation. In 2019, Bihar had one of the highest cut offs for its State MBBS seats. Irrespective of your Category, you should aim for atleast 600 for a seat in Patna Medical College. Now this is based on 2019 cut offs. But cut offs change every year depending on various factors such as no.of Candidates appearing for the exam, no.of Candidates qualified, top NEET score and difficulty of the exam. The cut offs might decrease with increase in the no.of availability of seats. Considering all these factors, 600 should be an ideal score.
Hello,After going through student reviews, I learned igims is much better than pmch. In general, students don't choose igims because of its high fee. The internship stipend is good here which somewhat compensates for the high fee. The students say, the college has great faculty.To know more about the college, go through the link below-http://www.igims.orgGood Luck!
