MBBS NEWS: BAMS TO FILL UP MBBS VACANCIES IN MAHARASHTRA


STUDYMBBSINRUSSIA: Mumbai: Facing acute shortages of allopathy practitioners to provide care in the public healthcare centres of the state, the Maharashtra government has now turned to Ayurveda graduates to fill up its vacancies. Confirming the same, a top health official stated that all vacant medical posts across centres including public hospitals shall be filled up with a deadline of two months and that the responsibility of hiring the doctors has been given to district collectors rather than officials of the Directorate of Health Services (DHS).
As a part of their responsibility, the district collector would publish advertisements walk-in interviews, select candidates and send the recommendations to the state. While obviously preference would be given to MBBS candidates, if there are not enough applications from MBBS candidates, they will fill up the posts with Bachelor of Ayurveda Medicine and Surgery (BAMS) candidates who are eager to work in rural and tribal areas. The appointment will be for 11 months which can be extended until an MBBS doctor is appointed.
Additional chief secretary (health) explained to HT, “In a rough comparison, we have 100 applications from BAMS doctors against one from an MBBS doctor. We will fill these posts on a temporary basis, so that every citizen has access to medical care.” The move comes in the light of severe shortage of medical practitioners in the government hospitals and in particular in the primary health centres of the state.
As studying medicine in India gets tougher due to limited seats and high capitation fee, a number of medical aspirants check out the options abroad to become qualified doctors. Although taking the overseas route in the healthcare industry has been in prevalence for quite some time, over the past few years there has been an average increase of about 10-15 per cent increase in the number of students going abroad for studying medicine.
