On average, 9 out of 20 faculty members quit the job in RGUHS private institutions.

Bengaluru: The Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS) has issued a stern notice directing all its affiliated medical, dental, and paramedical colleges to not issue an experience certificate to the faculty who resigns before completing one year of service at the institute.

With this order in power, the university is determined to prevent faculty quitting their teaching jobs without serving one year.

The issue was recently reported in Deccan Herald which stated that private medical colleges in Karnataka face a tough time in finding a replacement for faculty positions which fall vacant in the middle of an academic year.

The university authorities came to know about the issue when they received a lot of complaints from medical students stating that the institutions are not conducting the classes on a regular basis and not even considering in the deserving candidates for faculty positions.

Informing about the same, a senior RGUHS official told the daily, “We received a lot of complaints from students about private institutions not conducting regular classes and not roping in the deserving candidates for faculty positions. When we inquired with the institutions, they replied that they were finding it difficult to retain faculty members as many of them quit in the middle of the academic year due to work pressure and other reasons.”

 “We lack information about the private college faculties. This measure will help us to know the exact strength,” Registrar, RGUHS informed Deccan Herald.

Besides, some go for higher studies, and some quit because of work pressure. Compared to other private colleges the attrition rate is less in our college.”

  1. Who cares about the issues faced by faculties. Private medical colleges r worst as an employer.

  2. What if the colleges checks out the faculty after MCI inspections. Payment big issue in many colleges. They pay regular before inspections and after wards just raise their hands RGUHS must put up some rehabilitation scheme for such faculty.
