Jodhpur: AIIMS Vacancies finds NO takers

Jodhpur: AIIMS Vacancies finds NO takers

Jaipur: The All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS) Jodhpur Rajasthan, one of the six new AIIMS set up by the central government in the country, seems to have failed to attract quality manpower. Of the 305 posts sanctioned  by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare for faculty, a mere 99 have been filled so far.

The central government has set up AIIMS in Bhopal, Bhubaneswar, Patna, Raipur, Rishikesh and Jodhpur.

Senior resident posts numbering 327, have seen a mere 105 take on positions, while 301 junior resident posts haven’t gone beyond 84 appointments.

Reason for faculty shortage has been assigned to lack of resource and infrastructure. Jodhpur is also not connected to other major cities by air, except for the capital and Mumbai, which has been cited as another reason for faculty not joining.

AIIMS officials  however, also revealed  that recruitments at Jodhpur AIIMS are need based; keeping in mind additional services and facilities planned at the hospital. Vacant faculty posts are being advertised regularly by the institute, the sources added.

“We have not been able to fill up all advertised positions,” said Manish Srivastava, Administrative Officer. He said that the faculty appointment selection had recently ended and the matter has been sent to the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare for their approval. “It will be clear how many positions will be filled only after we get their approval,” Srivastava told HT.

According to an official, a separate Standing Selection Committees (SSCs) has been formed for AIIMS, Jodhpur, to fill up vacancies in earnest.

In order to attract quality teaching staff, various measures have been taken up said AIIMS officials. The upper age limit for direct recruitment for posts of professor and additional professor has been raised from 50 to 58 years.

Contract basis faculty appointments, as a stop-gap arrangement are also being made. The ratio of teachers to students has been revised from 1:1 to 1:2 for all MD/MS disciplines and 1:1 to 1:3 in subjects like surgical oncology, forensic medicine, radiotherapy, medical oncology, anesthesiology,  and psychiatry.

    What a shame DOCTORS are unwilling to join AIIMS, Jodhpur, still the Health Minister planning start New Medical colleges ?. In Existing MEDICAL COLLEGES it\’s Hard to Find Quality , committed Faculty Members. It quantity with out quality is nothing but Garbage. And it\’s not easy to get rid of the FILTH. Swatch Bharat becomes Swaha Bharth. The only thing which can save our country from FILTH is POPULATION control , control only. Chapman(56), Ek sou tiss(130), sounds good only to impress the Innocent , illiterate,( idiotic). Poor and Help less population Egerly waiting for freebies as delivered DURING elections. Truth is better , there Politicians avoid telling the truth, by feed sweet poison they Divert core issues and talk about useless things, or involve blame game. Let the Health Minister come out with a plan to train the Doctors to be the Knowledgeable, skill Full and committed teachers . Unfortunately most of MEDICAL COLLEGES are flooded with DUMMY DOCTORS, with out required knowledge and skills to teach and Train the students. Just imagine a PSI, to act as SP, or Thasildar to replace a D C. Or Dirist Judge replace the SUPREME COURT Judge. But the local Praticeners, DOCTORS sitting miles away from the Medical colleges and Retired DOCTORS from Government services or Jobless DOCTORS have appointed as teachers ( cheaters). Such Faculty Members Will be more than happy to the tune of college Management by giving excess of marks and attendance for the students to CLEAR the exams with out much knowledge and required skills . Such Doctors could be more dangerous than the disease itself , taking wrong treatment is more dangerous than not taking treatment at all . Our country is already flooded and fooled by QUACKS , there is no meaning adding Up of Few more qualified Quacks. Look at Judiciary DESPITE acute shortage of Judges with long pending cases , they are not APPOINTED Judges, SIMILARLY in Defense they don\’t appointment any body into the forces. It can happen in Politicis , the Politicians son to be Politicians even get elected as MLA , and very first time being elected he becomes a Minister also. Where as such things should not happen in this NOBLE profession called Medicine. Because you should live because of me……

    What quality? Enjoy reservations…
    Who open-category specialist would join a stupid place at Jodhpur? Govt is creating such places only for reserved category people. So, enjoy with low-quality specialists. All the best to Indian patients….
