Jamshedpur, Jan. 6: After techies and business graduates, it is the turn of doctors to get placements.
Campus recruitment was conducted at Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Medical College today by a team from Meghalaya. The team comprising officials of the Meghalaya state government and an NGO Citizen Forum selected 11 interns (resident junior doctors) after the campus selection on MGM College premises.
MGM college sources said the selected doctors would receive their appointment letter within a month. The successful candidates would be posted in the government hospitals in and around Shillong.
According to the sources, the Meghalaya government had expressed their interest to recruit some doctors from other states to the NGO.
The NGO officials got in touch with the Jharkhand government and conducted the recruitment drive. The campus selection conducted by the team today lasted for five hours.
The campus interview started from 10am today.
A.N. Mishra, the principal of the medical college, said it is a great opportunity for the students. This is the first time campus recruitment was conducted at the medical college in the city, he said.
"It is a great day for the government as representatives from another state selected fresh interns from the medical college to help the people of another state," said Mishra.
"Recruitment of doctors through campus selections at medical colleges was something unheard of and generally takes place in engineering and business schools. Fortunately the medical students got offers from other states with good pay pack- age and perks," said the principal of government college.
Mishra said the interns would get a handsome salary, free accommodation and car for the job in Meghalaya. He said the salary would be around Rs 33,000 per month.
He said the Meghalaya government had plans to recruit 30 interns but as various hospital and medical centres in the state already absorbed most of them they took only 11.
"They wanted to take in 30 interns and we informed the students about it. But only 11 turned up and incidentally all of them got the job," the principal told.Source:The Telegraph.
One of the selected candidates, on condition of anonymity, said the job would give him the exposure and would be a highlight on his CV. "I would join the job immediately after I get the appointment letter. I wanted to work in other states as it would help me in getting jobs in future," she said.
"Moreover, I will be a new experience as I would get the chance to treat people living in hilly areas that is climatic and topographically diffe- rent from Jharkhand," said the intern.
