Over 4,800 Increase in PG Medical Seats In 2020-21 Academic Session: MCI

18Mar,2020

In an endeavour to increase number of specialists across the country, the Government has set the ball rolling to add  PG medical seats  for MD and MS programmes by more than 4,800 to 36,192 for the next academic session 2020-21 a top official said on Monday. BoG Chairman and Niti Aayog member V K Paul said the increase is more than the total number of additional seats created in the past five years. 

"The Prime Minister Narendra Modi government in 2014 had promised to double PG and UG medical seats by 2024. So, in that direction the Board of Governors-vested with power of the Medical Council of India has given its approval to increase post graduate medical seats (broad speciality) in 2020-21 session by 4,807.

"So, as a result, in the new academic session counselling, 36,192 PG medical seats (MD/MS, broad speciality) will be available," Mr Paul told PTI. 

Mr Paul also said the capacity expansion would improve tertiary care in the country. 

"In 2020-21 academic session, approximately 44,000 post graduate medical seats (36,192 MD/MS seats and 8,000 DNB/FNB seats) will be available for 54,000 undergraduate MBBS pass outs," he said. 

MS is the post graduate degree in general surgery, while MD is the post graduate degree in general medicine.

In 2014-15, there were over 23,000 PG medical seats in both government and private medical colleges across the country. 

Mr Paul said the Niti Aayog is working with the Ministry of Health to encourage large hospitals to offer resident doctors Diplomate or Fellow of National Board (DNB/FNB) courses under the National Board of Examination. 

Recently, to address shortage of qualified doctors and bridge gap in medical education, the Niti Aayog had come out with the public-private partnership (PPP) model to link new or existing private medical colleges with functional district hospital to augment medical seats.

In its draft 'Model Concession Agreement for Setting Up Medical Colleges Under the Public Private Partnership' guideline document, the Aayog had said a scheme to link new and/or existing private medical colleges with functional district hospitals through PPP would augment medical seats and also rationalise the costs of medical education. Under the new district residency programme, planned by the Board of Governors, every post graduate medical student will need to serve at a district hospital for three months in order to be eligible to get their degrees.
