The recent decision to replace the Medical Council of India and replace it with a National Medical Commision is on the face of it a good step considering the irregularities present in the Medical Council
However the National Medical Commision Bill has a lot of major lacunae which need correction
Firstly according to the new Bill any medical graduate has to clear the exit exam if he wishes to go for post graduation .This is apparently being done to ensure quality and uniformity of syllabi .If he doesnt wish to go for post graduation can he practise. Also if he is unable to clear the exam for say 1 or 2 years what is he expected to do .Will any hospital or nursing home or Govt accept him .Clarity is needed on this
Secondly any medical college can start a post graduate course if it has got permission for undergraduate courses even without the necessary infrastructure .Also colleges are at will to increase the numbet if seats as they wish.This will lead to utter chaos and lack of properly trained post graduates .This too should be scrapped
Thirdly and most importantly practitioners from indigeneous streams of medicine like Ayurveda will be allowed to practise allopathy if they do a Bridge course in allopathy.This effectively is a legal nod to quackery and will result in massive number of medical complications and deaths which will definitely slur the already fragile health of the Indian health System
While we have nothing with AYUSH practitoners doing their work in their respective areas what is being objected to is the bridge course allowng them to do allopathy This part of the bill should be thoroughly scrapped.
Taken alongwith the firstpoint an MBBS graduate had to clear an Exit exam before he can do anything while an AYUSH Practioner has just got to do this Bridge course to do allopathy.This is complete injustice.
Therefore we demand that the concerned clauses in the National Medical Commision bill be removed
