Mumbai medicos take up jobs in villages

15-May-2011 :  MUMBAI: A week ago as gritty medical interns went on hunger strike for better stipends held their ground against the government, many raised a pertinent question.

Are these students? many of whom do not end up serving at rural hospitals despite enjoying subsidized education?justified to demand any more money?

Figures accessed by TOI show that the ever increasing vacancies in rural hospitals, and therefore indicating that very few students passing out from the medical colleges actually take up jobs in rural, cottage or district hospitals.

Statistics of the Directorate of Health Services (DHS) revealed that of the 2,136 applicants who showed interest in joining government hospitals in 2010-11, only 285 candidates actually ended up taking the job. Over the years, it clearly shows that the situation hasn't changed much.

In the last five years, out of the 7,486 applications received from doctors who were willing to serve in rural hospitals only 1,376 actually joined the service. The ratio has only worsened.

In 2005-06, out of 748 doctors only around 233 had joined the service, the percentage has only deteriorated. In 2008-09 only 174 candidates out of 1,217 joined state-run hospitals.

The Directorate of Medical Education and Research ( DMER) Pravin Shingare said that the trend has been that less than 100 out of the 2000-odd MBBS students passing out of the public colleges every year go to rural areas. Even for postgraduate students the situation is no better as out of the 1,000-odd who pass out every year, less than 50 are found taking up a job in rural areas.
