PCMC Post­pones Med­i­cal Col­lege Launch Next Year

Citadel - - FLASHBACK -

Start­ing the post­grad­u­ate med­i­cal col­lege at­tached to the Yash­wantrao Cha­van Me­mo­rial Hospi­tal (YCMH) of the Pim­pri-Chinch­wad Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion (PCMC) is not pos­si­ble for the civic body this year. It has failed to com­plete the for­mal­i­ties re­quired to start the col­lege. The Med­i­cal Coun­cil of In­dia (MCI) has sanc­tioned 44 post­grad­u­ate seats for the pro­posed col­lege, which is likely to be­gin from the next aca­demic year. Ten spe­cial­i­sa­tions will be taught in the col­lege. The civic body has al­ready ini­ti­ated the process for hiring the staff for the col­lege. The PCMC has started in­ter­views for re­cruit­ing doc­tors as fac­ulty for the in­sti­tute on a con­tract ba­sis af­ter the end of the elec­tion code of con­duct. Ear­lier, the civic body had ob­tained per­mits and ap­provals to start the in­sti­tute. How­ever, it failed to kick off due to the lack of the ex­emp­tion cer­tifi­cate un­der sec­tion 8(1A) of the MCI Post Grad­u­ate Med­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion Reg­u­la­tions, 2000. Dr Pardeshi had ini­ti­ated the idea to start the col­lege, jointly with the Ma­ha­rash­tra Univer­sity of Health Sciences (MUHS), Nashik, in 2012.
