Medical Council of India (MCI) moots Licentiate Test for MBBS graduates

In a major shift from the 60-year-old tradition in medical education in the country, those who wish to practice in future would have to follow up their MBBS course with a licentiate examination.

The idea is to allow only those who clear the licentiate India Medical Graduates (IMG) degree  test, after a one-year internship, to do medical practice in the country. This is part of the crucial reforms mooted by the Medical Council of India (MCI) which will come up for discussion at the national summit to be held at Manekshaw Centre, Parade Road, Delhi, on September 12.

If the proposals are accepted, MBBS graduates would have to complete a one-year internship in a hospital for appearing for the licentiate examination.

Director of Medical Education (Kerala) Dr V Geetha told Express that the principals from medical colleges in the State have been invited to the meet.

They are expected to give suggestions based on the local needs of the state, she said.

Other sources also said that the Kerala University of Health Sciences (KUHS) had suggested some alternatives to some of the proposals included in the draft reforms. One of the main suggestion put forward by the MCI is the abolition of entrance examination for PG courses.

Students will be selected for the PG courses on the basis of the marks obtained at the MBBS level and the marks obtained in the internship to get the IMG. Students for the PG courses will be selected from a national-level merit list, prepared after taking into account the marks obtained in the theory test and in the licentiate test.

The MCI is planning to implement the new reforms as optional from 2013 and want to make it mandatory from 2017.

Students in the under-graduate level will have to do a foundation course for two months comprising of medical ethics, communication, health economics, biohazards and environmental issues,in tune with the proposed reforms.

For the PG programme, the suggestion is for introducing a new two-year M Med scheme.

After obtaining M Med, students will have the option of getting MD, dual degrees, PhD and DM.

As per the draft paper of the MCI, the number of examinations of MBBS will be reduced from four to three. 

The KUHS had suggested that all subjects now taught for MBBS course like Forensic medicine, ENT, Ophthalmology have to be retained. KUHS has suggested adding a few more subjects such as ethics and geriatrics to the curriculum of the course.

Another KUHS suggestion is that many subjects which have been proposed as electives like Immunology, Genetics, Human Nutrition and Emergency Medicine should be made compulsory subjects.

The National Council for Human Resources in Health Draft Bill

The NCHRH ( National council of human resource for health)  is likely to be introduced in parliament in the winter session

The Centre has proposed to set up an independent National Council for Human Resources on Health (NCHRH), which will subsume five existing health councils, including the powerful Medical Council of India, to generate quality healthcare professionals. 

A 15-member task force headed by Union Health Secretary Naresh Dayal has suggested introducing new legislation in Parliament to pave the way for the NCHRH. The bill may be expected in the coming winter session.

Once the new over-arching council is in place, the Pharmacy Council, Dental Council, Nursing Council and Rehabilitation Council besides the all powerful MCI—all created through various acts of Parliament between 1948 and 1992— will cease to exist. 

“Professional councils were set up by the statutes of Parliament to regulate the practice of their respective profession. However, many of these councils serve as little more than lobby groups for their members and have not served India’s health goals well,” says a ministerial note on the NCHRH in possession with Deccan Herald.

The 11-member NCHRH will look after both undergraduate and post-graduate health education. It is mandated to maintain a live electronic register of health professionals so that the exact number of doctors, nurses, dentists and pharmacists are known.

The NCHRH plans to revamp the medical education system by proposing national level exit examination at post-graduate level to begin with.

The NCHRH is aimed at keeping the entire gamut of medical education with the Health Ministry. 

It is being given an additional push by the ministry after the proposed All India Council for Higher Education headed by Yash Pal recommended bringing all tertiary education—including medical education— under a common regulatory umbrella. While there was a tussle between the ministries of health and HRD over the control of medical education sector till about a month back, it is learnt that the balance has tilted in favour of health, 
thanks to the intervention from the Prime Minister’s Office.

Setting up the council is one of the items in Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad’s 100 days agenda. The NCHRH chairman and secretary will be selected by the Appointment Committee of the Cabinet that will take the decision on the advice of a selection panel.

The selection panel will consist of cabinet secretary, principal secretary to the PM, health secretary and two technical experts. The NCHRH chairman will have a fixed term of three years. A search committee convened by the health secretary will shortlist 33 names for the NCHRH out of which the final eleven will be chosen by the selection panel.

The NCHRH will be constituted as a compact autonomous body independent of government control with adequate powers including quasi-judicial ones. An advisory body will guide the council.

Varsity pulls allopathy out of Indian medicine

CHENNAI: The allopathy versus traditional medicine crossfire in Tamil Nadu has intensified, with the MGR Medical University pulling out the allopathy content from the traditional medicine syllabus and the Central Council for Indian Medicine(CCIM) threatening to withdraw recognition for such courses. 

Caught in melee are 1,200-odd students of siddha, unani, ayurveda and homeopathy courses under the MGR university . The university had deleted allopathy portions from the undergraduate syllabus of traditional medicine courses this year as it wanted to curb traditional medicine practitioners from prescribing allopathic drugs.

CCIM, which prescribes the curriculum and syllabus for courses, is not too pleased. "If the university changes the syllabus , it would be a clear violation of the provisions of the Indian Medicine Central Council Act 1970," CCIM secretary P R Sharma said. CCIM has demanded that the university reintroduce the removed syllabus within 30 days failing which it will withdraw recognition and the state council will be asked not to register students passing out of the university .

University officials confirmed the revision in syllabus. University vice-chancellor Dr Mayil Vahanan Natarajan said the decision to prune the syllabus was taken on the basis of inputs from six senior allopathic doctors. "We have reduced syllabus for MBBS by 20% because we found that students face an overload of information . In Indian medicine stream, we cut down on the syllabus because we thought there were too many irrelevant things," he said. Dr Natarajan said the varsity is planning to change the nomenclature of the degrees it awarded to Indian medicine graduates.

Now, an undergraduate in Ayurveda will no more be Bachelor of Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery (BAMS) but only Bachelor of Ayurvedic Medicine (BAM). "Why should they be called surgeons when they don't do any surgery?," he said.

Tamil Nadu State Medical Council president Dr M Prakasam welcomed the university decision. "I am glad the purity of Indian medicine is restored . Allowing non-allopathic doctors to prescribe modern medicines and conduct surgery amounts to state-sponsored quackery," he said.
