Government Doctors’ say ‘NO’ for training of MD Emergency Medicine in Corporates

Chennai :  Tamil Nadu Government’s , Directorate of medical education in a letter on December 20 instructions to the deans of the government medical colleges to depute emergency medicine postgraduates from their respective colleges to Ganga Hospital in Coimbatore “so as to ensure improved quality of emergency care services” has been opposed by the Doctor’s Association.

Opposing the move, President of Tamil Nadu Government Doctors Association, Dr K Senthil,  said the move is against National Medical Commission rules. “Such initiative can later be demanded or followed for all specialties,.” he said. He said the government specialists are more experienced and skilled than those at private hospitals. “The difference is the sophisticated infrastructure, more paramedics and less patients,” Dr Senthil said.

The Service Doctors and Post Graduates Association (SDPGA) in its statement said, “Tamil Nadu Health department has world-class infrastructure and trained and skilled faculty. In this scenario, deputing our postgraduates to corporate hospitals is a regressive step.”
