MCI official satisfied with department of anaesthesia at Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) inspection

RANCHI: Students and faculty members of department of anaesthesia at Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) are keeping their fingers crossed expecting the nod of Medical Council of India (MCI) for
recognising post-graduate course in the department.

MCI inspector Poonam Bhadoria from Maulana Azad Medical College, Delhi, who was here on a two-day visit expressed satisfaction over infrastructure, cleanliness and strenght of faculty members. Talking to the media after inspecting the operation theatre, Intensive Care Unit, labour room and recovery room, Bhadoria said she was happy to note standard of cleanliness and latest equipment being used.

"Hardly any government hospital maintains such high standards," she said. Bhadoria, however, clarified that the report would be submitted to the MCI headquarters and a final decision on whether admissions to PG course be allowed, would be taken by senior officials.

Head department of anaesthesia, Ajit Kumar said no short falls were pointed in course of inspection. "We have been preparing for the inspection for quite some time now. We are hopeful that not only the admissions to PG course would be allowed but also the course would be recognised for the first time since 1988," he said.

PG course in anaesthesia was being conducted all these years with due approval of MCI but it was not registered with the MCI as a result of which students obtaining post-graduate degree from RIMS are not
allowed to apply for government jobs outside Jharkhand.

"Paper degree is hardly taken into account in the private sector and due to limited vacancy in government hospitals only few students complained about the course not being recognised by MCI," said a PG student.

The RIMS management invited MCI team way back in March 2009 for inpection but the institute requested the team to delay its visit in July the same year after it identified shortfall in faculty position. source-timesofindia.indiatimes.com
