I agree to the terms and conditions
yes the system should be more practical oriented than of theory, the faculty should also be scanned properly in terms of knowledge, during the internship the student should be sent in rotation to the best hospitals of the state, so that he may interact with different top notch doctors with variety and depth of experience,and during this rotation he can very well understand that superspeciality doctors do some thing differently that is whay they are superspeciality doctors.internship should be of 18 months.and every academic year should be of 1 yr each during ug.and pg needs to be more intensified and purpose oriented.with stipend should be revised

With the increasing number of private colleges,the quality of medical education has been a ?, especailly with dental colleges increasing in number like arts college in states like Tamilnadu, karnataka etc., Their quality is totally lost and the officials have to take some steps soon.
