Indore: A team from Medical Council of India (MCI) on Monday visited MGM Medical College to check whether the shortcomings pointed out last year by the council at the college have been rectified or not.
“A three-member team of MCI inspected the college and the MY Hospital. They reviewed facilities and infrastructure available at the colleges. The team also verified whether deficiencies pointed out by another MCI team last time were eliminated or not,” said Dr Sanjay Dixit, head of PSM department, MGM Medical College. The visiting team comprised of Dr Rajiv Kumar Mishra from Uttar Pradesh, Dr Anup Kumar Saha from Tripura and Dr CHN Rajkumari from Andhra Pradesh.
The trio assessed standards of the institution to make sure that it has adequate facilities, infrastructure and faculties to run MBBS courses. Based on the report of visiting team, the MCI will take a decision on 10-MBBS seats, which were increased after court orders. In September 2015 and May 2016, teams of MCI inspected the college and found many deficiencies, including lack of space at the library.
However, Dr Dixit said, “It is a regular inspection of the MCI. The team visited departments, head count of faculty in each department and hostel.” The team has taken note of space crunch in library during inspection. Meanwhile, college administration claimed that most of the issues were addressed by them except few which are still pending including increasing library space and hostel capacity. A compliance report has been submitted to the peer team.
