Dr. N.K. Singh
Careers360: What should be the focus of MCI regulations with respect to MBBS?
Dr. N.K.Singh: Focus of MCI regulations in MBBS teaching should be on quality of medical education. MCI's emphasis on infrastructure, clinical material and faculty strength is justified but there should be more emphasis on quality of medical teaching. Medical curriculum should be restructured to cater to the needs of our country, more emphasis should be on clinical skills, problems-based learning and management of health problems at primary level and less on memorizing facts.
Careers360: What are the growth opportunities in medical profession?
Dr. N.K.Singh: Current medical profession relies heavily on sophisticated investigations to arrive at a diagnosis. More emphasis should be laid on clinical skills and history, taking care to avoid undue economic burden on individual and society.
Careers360: Do we need to raise PG seats?
Dr. N.K.Singh: There is an urgent need to double the PG seats to ensure adequate specialized doctors in every speciality to cater to the entire population. Against the existing 55,000 MBBS seats there are only 22,000 PG seats. MCI should relax norms for PG teaching in branches where a huge gap exists between need and availability of specialized doctors.

i have scored 152 marks in neet under obc category from state up can i get paid seat under this college
Though you belong to the OBC category with such a low score you will not get a seat in a private college through Counselling. It's too difficult to get any seat through counselling. But as you have qualified the exam you can opt for management quota seats of private college. You may get a seat in any private college through management quota. But there is some disadvantage. Firstly the high fees and an additional charge which is also high. You may get a seat in private college for management quota. So you can try.
