RGUHS says no to new council

The Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Science (RGUHS) has decried the recommendation for creating a National Council for Human Resources in Health (NCHRH) and scrapping the Medical Council of India (MCI) owing to corruption and other deficiencies, made by a national task force which went into the issue.

According to sources in the medical education department, the RGUHS has in a report to the Union government, strongly backed the MCI, arguing that its performance is satisfactory and the task force’s suggestion to set up the NCHRH in its place is “not in tune with the present day concept of decentralisation”.

While RGUHS agreed there were several problems with agencies overseeing medical education in the country, it felt they should be retained in the interest of maintaining high standards. “The establishment of NCHRH will undermine the autonomy of the MCI and other apex bodies which have undoubtedly brought appreciable changes in the health scenario,” the state medical varsity said.

“It is difficult to even imagine how a council with five members only will be able to guide and oversee all the faculties of over 1,000 health professional institutions,” it added. RGUHS also opposed the task force’s recommendation that professionals who have received medical-health related training from NCHRH accredited non- academic institutions, should be permitted to appear for PG programmes at the university level and obtain MD/MS degrees, saying this could dilute the quality of working professionals in the field.

Member of the task force, Dr Devi Shetty of Narayana Hrudayalaya, refused to comment on the stand taken by RGUHS saying, “our job is only to submit reports”.

A senior officer of the medical education department, however felt that RGUHS vice-chancellor Dr S. Ramananda Shetty should be held accountable for the institute’s defence of the MCI.

“To the best of our knowledge most rural areas of the state still do not have access to good doctors and the MCI is to blame,” he said.

Hi-tech copycat used device inside his shirt

He would wear the same shirt every day to the exam. Not because it was his lucky shirt. He would always pull the collar up. Not because it was the latest fashion. This student, Arun (name changed), had a speaker and wires tucked away in his shirt — to help him copy. He would receive and transmit information through the device. Arun and two other final year MBBS students who resorted to hi-tech copying have been caught.

Arun, a repeater, was writing part-I ophthalmology paper at J N Medical College in Belgaum in December. When the invigilators quizzed him on wearing the same shirt, he would reply: “It’s my lucky shirt.”

“He would never fold his collar and would always pull the collar near his mouth. This kind of unusual behaviour drew the attention of the invigilators,” S Vasantha Kumar, registrar, RGUHS, told TOI. “His shirt does not raise suspicion. But when we frisked him, we found batteries inside the shirt and when we folded collar, we found something hard. We tore the collar, and found wires and a speaker,” Kumar explained. The malpractice committee, which met last week, decided to debar all the students.

Eight dental students caught while copying

It was exam time and some students were busy chewing when the checking squad entered the hall. The moment the squad left, they spat out. No, they were not angry. They spat out the chits on which they had written the answers.

This incident happened at KGF College of Dental Science on Wednesday. A total of 33 students were writing the dental pharmacology exam (II BDS); human physiology and biochemistry (I BDS) and anatomy exam (I BDS).

Eight students were caught red-handed. In a swift move, the RGUHS (Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences) cancelled the exam centre. S Vasantha Kumar, registrar of the university, said: "All the students scheduled to take the exam in this centre have been directed to appear at the Devaraj Urs Medical College, Kolar, for the next examination."

The RGUHS was tipped off on Monday about mass copying at the dental college. Not taking any chances, the university officials immediately constituted a two-member committee comprising A G Prathab, associate professor (microbiology), M S Ramaiah Medical College, and B J Mahendra, professor and HoD (community medicine), Mandya Institute of Medical Science, on Tuesday.

"We caught eight students red-handed and left the hall. But when we came back, we saw heaps of chits in a corner of the hall. We were shocked. When we examined the chits, we found they were chewed by the students and were still moist. Worse, on the ground floor, we found a lot of study material,” Prathab said.

The chits of the eight students along with their answerscripts, study material and other chits too were confiscated. The members have taken the recording from the CCTV.
