    Before Increase in the Number of seats in Postgraduate study, some important issues should be made compulsory. The Post Graduate students after completion of their course , should work for the Government for a minimum of 3 years.( Because the Government spends Millions of Rupees in making a specialist, Second the poor patients submit themselves to these trainee Doctors in their skill development. And they get Decent amount of Stipend, Accommodation etc. ). Coming to the Faculty issues. -they should remain in the Institution premises. They should not be allowed to take up private Practice like it is followed in almost all Reputed Institutions – AIIMS , the PGI Chandigarh, JIPMER Pondicherry, NIMHANS,Bangalore, AFMC, Poona, CMC, Vellore, KMC, Manipal, ST.Johns, Bangalore ………….These are the real Medical colleges of Repute bringing out the best of Doctors in the country. Similarly private practice should be banned in medical colleges across the country.Unfortunately in majority of Medical colleges across the country with Mediocre Teachers , we are adding up silly, stupid and Greedy Doctors. Therefore when it comes to Quality , commitment , knowledge and skills and confidence hell lot of a Difference amongst the Doctors in our country . Without commitment , we can never expect quality Doctors. It is not Quantity which matters , but quality the most. As a matter of fact ill trained Doctors are Dangerous like their Teachers and may be even worse with lack of ethics and Morals. Despite Having Shortage of Judges, Officers in Defense , and Fighter jet pilot s , Scientists in Our space program, DRDO I I I T \’s National Law colleges, IIM\’s etc ,we don\’t entertain everyone to get in or join these institutions. In a similar manner rules should be implemented in Medical colleges all over the country to bring out Quality Professionals. Otherwise recent incidents of violence against doctors throwing light on the deficiencies in the form of improper communication skills by leaving entire OPD ,casualty in the hands of Juniormost Doctors, indiscriminate referrals for unnecessary investigations enraging the patients and bringing forth their lack of clinical skills. Such things are unheard of in prestigious institutions with quality education and committed teachers.
