CIMA Gallary

MCI visit to health cradle

A Medical Council of India team arrived at Anugrah Medical College and Hospital (ANMCH) on Monday for an inspection, which would decide on the number of MBBS and postgraduate seats.

The two-member team will assess the hospitalís available infrastructure on Tuesday as well. The team would prepare a report for the council based on available infrastructure, including equipment, strength of teachers and non-teaching employees at the medical college and hospital.

Based on the report, the MCI would decide on further recognition and number of seats in the MBBS and postgraduate courses. Last year, the number of MBBS seats was doubled to 100. The team would assess whether the medical college has the capacity and adequate infrastructure for taking in 100 MBBS students.

The team pointed at the need for central registration in the pathological laboratory.

At present, the medical college has been allowed to admit two students each in the gynaecology, anatomy and pharmacology departments. The health department recently decided to appoint retired teachers on contract for the institute, which is short on teachers and non-teaching employees.
