Medical colleges asked to upload detailed records online

Info Regarding Attendance Of Faculty, Students' Feedback, Monthly Teaching Schedule To Be Placed On College Websites, According To New Rules. Medical colleges in the state, including six state-run colleges, have been asked to upload comprehensive information, including faculty attendance, on their websites by a Supreme Court appointed oversight committee on Medical Council of India (SCOCMCI). A circular issued on Wednesday , and signed by Medical Council of India secretary Dr Reena Nayyar, gives colleges an October-10 deadline to meet requirements and has asked them to maintain data in both electronic and physical form. Besides attendance record of faculty, students' feedback, monthly schedule of teaching, with the date and time of lectures, are among eight specific requirements made in the two-page circular.


Managements, however, expressed concerns over the circular. "How can the oversight committee expect us to upload detailed information on our medical college website on such short notice when all staff will be on Dasara vacation," said a furious private medical college association representative on condition of anonymity . Private medical college representatives also said they had been kept busy with delayed admissions process under Eamcet-III and NEET for the NRI and management category . In fact, what is likely to be more problematic for most of the 16 private medical colleges in Telangana is SCOCMCI's direction that they upload monthly census data of all patients with number of admissions, discharges, surgeries, procedures and investigations in each department on the college website.Managements say this will be a herculean task.


Telangana junior doctors' association (TJUDA) welcomed the circular, especially the students' feedback section that will allow medicos to give feedback on issues such as regularity of teaching, practical demonstrations, infrastructure facilities."All medical colleges must provide such feedback facility where students can anonymously post their problems so that the MCI can take note of them," said Dr G Srinivas, TJUDA state president. However, finding fault with the circular, MCI member Dr K Ramesh Reddy said it left scope for tampering as it allowed colleges to maintain physical records.
