Indore: A peer team of Medical Council of India visited Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Medical College for inspection of the infrastructure and the head count for the PG seats of skin and anesthesia department on Thursday. Team has found various deficiencies including lack of journals and demonstration room during the inspection of both the departments. However, college officials believe that the deficiencies are not serious and it will not affect the number of seats.
According to dean Dr Sharad Thora said, “Likewise every year, the team inspected infrastructure and faculty head count in college. Few deficiencies were noted by the team which will be improved by us soon.” Dr Harish Kumar and Dr Ramchandeya Nandliya of Karnataka had come for the inspection of skin and anesthesia departments, respectively.
“In 2016, MCI had noted the deficiency of faculty in skin department but after the transfer of Dr HK Narang again in the college eliminated it. During inspection, team had found less number of patients in the ward and both males and females were admitted together in the same ward. Similarly, team also pointed the lack of demonstration room and faculty in anesthesia department.” college sources said. College staff had given the excuse of ‘Navratri’ for less number of patients and submitted a compliance report for demonstration room and other deficiencies.
