Careers360 interviews Maulana Azad Medical College (MAMC) Principal, Dr. Deepak Tempe, who talks on medical research in India. In this interview, the MAMC principal also talks about solving issue of rural health disparity besides learning opportunities in public hospitals.
Dr. Deepak Tempe, in conversation with Careers360 also speaks on medical rackets in the country as he shares his views on winning public trust among doctors. Read the full interview below.
Dr. Deepak Tempe
Careers360: Medical research in India is a long way off. Do you agree?
Dr. Deepak Tempe: I think we can go a step higher, if the system supports us well. A good research is only possible if doctors get quality time to work on it. In our institutes, the doctors are overloaded with clinical care that they cannot think of anything beyond patients' care. For innovation to spring up, you really need good time for research. There is no curriculum or job profile that permits one day in a week or a month to devote for research. Despite challenges, MAMC has done some praiseworthy innovative work on no-scalpel vasectomy; the Balloon Valvotomy was pioneered from MAMC. The largest number of Balloon Valvotomy is performed at GB Pant Institute.
Careers360: Your take on medical racket in the country.
Dr. Deepak Tempe: One should not get tempted to make money as the amount of money that one can earn in this profession is unlimited, but honestly money has a limited role in your life. The satisfaction of finding a patient recovering from your treatment is worth a million dollars. It shocks me to see how some doctors have the intention of making all the money in just one day!
Careers360: How does learning happen in public institute/hospitals?
Dr. Deepak Tempe: In most good government hospitals you get an opportunity to treat diverse level of patients. Medical principles remain same for all. Unlike private doctors, I am never worried about how to gain more patients. In public level set-up, the in-flow of patients is in excess. You multi-task and value time well. The more you treat, the more you learn.
Careers360: Do you think the issue of rural health disparity could be solved if PG students are exposed to rigorous training in rural setting?
Dr. Deepak Tempe: In my opinion, it is a good idea to rotate PG students for a year to rural centres. This will certainly expose them to different sets of population and their clinical problems. The grass-roots level health problems can be utilized for learning and training and further used for medical researches. However, the rural centre must be reasonably well equipped in terms of infrastructure and manpower so that such training can be provided to the PG students. This also includes a senior professional working there who can act as an adjunct faculty for the student.
Careers360: What are your views on public trust in doctors and other challenges?
Dr. Deepak Tempe: The doctor-patient relationship is a major challenge in the medical field. Today doctors are struggling to restore the mutual trust and respect that used to exist between a doctor and a patient earlier. Healthcare is one of the most important needs of the society. Although needs are being fulfilled collectively by the government as well as corporate sector, the dismal situation of our country is that there are many hospitals with very basic or many times not even basic facilities with little manpower. My personal objective for MAMC is to produce a medical doctor, a teacher and researcher.

So as the time is near keep preparing and give your best
I am a NEET 2020 aspirant . I am a candidate from General caste and PWD ( 70% disability ) category from West Bengal. What is the minimum marks for me to get a government mbbs seat for my state medical colleges and for national colleges ( like AIIMS delhi , MAMC , VMMC etc. ) ? Can anyone help me ?
Arnab, AIIMS conducts its admissions through NEET score through All India Counselling. And this is the first time that AIIMS is conducting admissions through NEET score and so it might be tad difficult to predict the score. And PWD is a horizontal reservation within your Category. For AIIMS Delhi, you will need more than 625 while for an AIIMS Nagpur or Telangana even 600 might be enough. So for AIIMS, we would say you should target more than 600. Now if you belong to West Bengal for seat in VMMC or MAMC, you will have to try under All India Counselling. In 2019, under All India Counselling, an All India Rank of 64138 secured a seat in MAMC. This might total upto 550 and above. But this is again 2019 data and cut offs change every year. 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. So for a seat in MAMC or VMMC, we would say atleast 575 and above should be a decent score. Regarding State Medical Colleges, in 2019, under State Quota, an All India Rank of 671354 secured a seat in Nil Ratan Sircar Medical College under UR-PWD after Round 2. That might be around 450-500. But again because cut offs change every year, we would say you should target around 575 and above considering that you have MAMC, VMMC in mind and these are all filled through All India Counselling because you belong to West Bengal.

maulana azad medical college ke liye bhi koi alg se university ka form bharna h? if yes, kya date h last ?
Tarun, NEET is the entrance examination for admission to MBBS, BDS, Ayush and Veterinary courses across India. Few Medical Colleges like CMC Vellore, expect you to fill a separate application form but not MAMC. If you have Delhi Domicile, you can appear for its 85% State Quota and if you do not have Delhi's domicile, you can appear for 15% All India Quota but you needn't fill any separate application form except for NEET application form. You haven't mentioned your Category. Nevertheless, in 2019, under State Quota, the cut offs for various Categories at MAMC have been as follows:
General Category: 647
Now this is 2019 data and cut offs change every year. 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. So for a seat in this College, you should target to score more than 35-50 marks atleast than those mentioned against your Category here. And if you are preparing for NEET, you may as well try our NEET Knockout package: https://learn.careers360.com/knockout-neet-may/ . And because you have 2 more months to prepare for NEET, you may as well use this opportunity.
