(Video) Rajya Sabha TV (RSTV) The Big Picture: Medical Education Reforms

Topic: Medical Education Reforms


  • Dr. Naresh Trehan, (Chairman and Managing Director of Medanta)
  • Prof. Mahesh Verma, (Member, National Medical Commission & Vice Chancellor, GGS IP University, Delhi)
  • Prof. Rajendra Pandey, (Vice Chancellor, West Bengal University of Health Sciences)

Topic Description:

In a significant step towards affordable medical education, the National Medical Commission has notified its first major regulation. Titled as “Minimum Requirements For Annual MBBS Admissions Regulations, 2020”, the notification issued replaces the “Minimum Standard Requirements for Medical Colleges, 1999” of the erstwhile Medical Council of India. The new Regulation shall be applicable to all new medical colleges proposing to be established, and to the established medical colleges proposing to increase their annual MBBS intake from the academic year 2021-22. During the transitory period, the established medical colleges will be governed by the relevant regulations existing prior to the current notification. The new standards have been defined keeping the functional requirements of the institution(s). These allow optimization and flexibility in utilizing available resources, and harnessing modern educational technology tools to facilitate moving towards quality education, even when resources are relatively scarce.
