    this kind of activity is going on in some of the medical college institutions. To prevent this.there should be a mechanism by which the HOD or Professors of various departments should not be vested with the power of deciding the fate of students especially log book signing, internal assessment and finally pass in the examination. The college / hospital authorities along with the students should work it out. The erring personnel should be punished severely and this should act as a deterrent for others not to commit this kind of act in the future.is there any ethics in the medical professional now? In all the other departments like engineering(engineering ethics), Business(business ethics), Humanities and social science(ethics is the part of the curriculum) are inculcated in the young minds, where as we don\’t teach things. we medical professionals feel that this is not necessary,it is not so. we have to go a long way in preventing this kind of happenings
