3-member MCI team inspects medical college, MY hospital

Indore: A team from Medical Council of India (MCI) on Thursday visited MGM Medical College to check whether the shortcomings pointed out last year by the council at the college has been rectified or not.

“A three-member team of MCI inspected the college and the MY Hospital. The team reviewed facilities, infrastructure available at the colleges. It also verified whether deficiencies pointed out by another MCI team last time were eliminated or not,” said Dr Rahul Rokade, spokesperson of MGM Medical College.

The visiting team comprised of Dr Ram Mohanty from Orissa, Dr K Lakshminarayan from Karnataka and Dr Rajan Nanda from Rajasthan.

The trio assessed the standards of the institution to make sure that it has adequate facilities, infrastructure and faculties to run MBBS courses.

Based on the report on the 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.

Dr Rokade said, “It is a regular inspection of the MCI.

The team visited departments, head count of faculty in each department and hostel. They will be visiting urban and rural health centres on Friday.”

According to sources, the peer team has found several anomalies in casualty and wards during the inspection of MY Hospital. The team has taken note of space crunch in library and museum in anatomy department.

However, 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.

The sudden inspection of MCI had surprised the college administration as they were busy in taking decision on cancelling the excess admissions in private medical colleges.
