Nagpur (Nagar): Vasantrao Naik Yavatmal Government Medical College and Hospital (VNGMCH) has lost all of its 11 postgraduate in general medicine seats as a result of a reshuffle among medical faculty to comply with inspection requirements.Medicine faculty is one of the most critical and busy at medical schools.The National Medical Commission's (NMC) decision on August 24 to place the 11 seats on hold because of a shortage of teachers, facilities, and machines, was published.The inspection also revealed that the VNGMCH lacks an MRI machine.Faculty members from VNGMCH and Nagpur GMCH were taken aback at the decision.GMCH Nagpur avoided a potential loss of 24 seats by not relying on its PG medicine staff in a similar reshuffle process.During the same time, the NMC inspection was scheduled for Nagpur GMCH.Ironically, VNGMCH has lost the seats, though it does have the right teachers who have been sent elsewhere. The 24 PG medicine seats in Nagpur also faced the danger of being kicked out of the admissions process if their teachers had participated in the additional postings.The Medical Education Department and the Directorate of Medical Education and Research (DMER) have updated their data to show the same faculty members as working at different medical colleges, despite pressure to take on additional roles in other districts.Teachers and supervisors of various PG departments have been enraged by this.They have long opposed the scheme, but it has failed to provoke any response from the DMER chief Dr Dileep Mhaisekar and Dr Milind Fulpatil, the GMCH dean. This year, the college will no longer accept PG medicine students.This will result in financial loss for students as well as patients.Who is to blame for the loss of seats If no residents are available, who will lead medicine wards?They are the backbone of patient care. The college will have to wait for the next MCI inspection to uncover any anomalies.According to a professor, it seems that no one is concerned with medical education.
