Indore: The Medical Teachers’ Association on Wednesday were up in arms against the direct recruitment process in Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Medical College and alleged that the college administration is moulding the norms of recruitment by their own under Model Service Rule 2018. The association also alleged that ‘unnecessary’ recruitment on the post of faculties will restrict promotion and opportunities of the existing faculty members and post graduate demonstrators.
Representatives of Medical Teachers’ Association also submitted a memorandum to the Dean of the medical college and requested her to stop the recruitment process. According to president of Medical Teachers’ Association Dr Poonam Mathur, there is no need of recruitment of faculties in any department as the college already has ample number of faculty members required for 250 MBBS seats, for which college has applied to Medical Council of India, in the college.
“College administration is changing rules by their own and now have started counting the experience of faculties in private medical colleges and giving them the post which is injustice with the faculties of MGM Medical College,” she said.
Dr Mathur added faculty members in government medical college get time bound promotion in 12 years from assistant professor to associate professor but the same is not followed by the private medical colleges.
“There is no need of recruitment of faculties in the medical college as we already have ample faculty members. We requested the dean to defer the recruitment process which affect the promotion and opportunities of in house faculty members. The process also out our juniors and students working in private medical college to join as our senior,” she added.
