SKIMS gets MCI recognition for 3 MD Dermatology, 2 MD Psychiatry seats

Srinagar: Over a month after getting permission to start MS in Orthopaedics, the Bemina-based renowned Sher-i-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences (SKIMS) has bagged the recognition from the apex Medical Council of India (MCI) for its 5 seats in two Post-Graduate (PG) MD courses.

The confirmation to this effect comes via an official statement made by the medical college authorities which states, “The Medical Council of India (MCI) has granted permission to SKIMS Medical College, Bemina here to start post-graduation in Psychiatry, with three seats, and Dermatology, with two seats.”

As per the Letter of Permission (LOP) from Medical Council of India Board of Governors (MCI BoG) Government of India Vide letter dated 08.02.2019 and 27.02.2019, MCI permitted starting of Post-Graduation in Psychiatry with 03 (Three) seats and Dermatology with 02 (Two) seats thereby increasing the number of PG seats by 05 (Five).

Earlier, on the basis of the reports by medical council Assessor on the inspections conducted last year, SKIMS had been granted recognition for two seats of MS (Orthopaedics). With this, the Orthopaedics department of SKIMS had become the first Post-Graduate (PG) department of the institution to be recognized by the MCI.

Now, a month later, the medical college has succeeded in receiving MCI recognition for two courses, Dermatology and Psychiatry. The efforts of the medical college authorities are being lauded; as per recent media accounts.

The doctors have appreciated the role of Principal of the College and Director SKIMS, Soura in this regard. The statement said that the medical college and JVC Hospital has grown in the last few years in infrastructure as well as in providing health care services, reports Greater Kashmir.

Keeping in view the rush of the patients at the medical facility, the social activists and public want to draw the attention of Government towards the establishment of Mother & Child Hospital at JVC, Bemina as patients to face difficulties on account of non-availability of beds for children and pregnant patients from far-flung areas, adds KNS Kashmir.

    WHAT KIND OF LOGIC ? THE COLLEGE STRUGGLING TO FULL FILL THE NEEDS FOR U G COURSE , IS GETTING PERMISSION TO STATAT POST GRADUATE SEATS , THAT TOO IN A CLINICAL SUBJECTS . I THINK IT IS A MUST TO HAVE PRE & PARA MEDICAL PG COURSES BEFORE GETTING PERMISSION TO APPLY FOR THE CLINICAL SUBJECTS . OUR COUNTRY , OUR POLICIES, OUR POLITICS, THE BABUS THE BUEROCRATES AND THEIR MENTALLY SEEMS HIGHLY CONFUSING, COMPLEX AND COMPLICATED OF COURSE WITH OVER LOADED WITH CASTEIST COMMUNAL CORRUPT CROOKEDNESS , CARELESSNESS . THAT\’S WHY I THINK WORLD\’S HIGHEST NUMBER OF SOCIOPATH & PSYCHOPATHS MAY BE FOUND IN INDIA. GOVERNMENT MEANS HOLY COW ? AND PRIVATE MEANS DIRTY PIG , DESPITE THEIR CONTRIBUTION IN NATION BUILDING ACTIVITIES. I WISH THERE IS SOME KIND OF DEVISE TO DETECT THE HONESTY , INTEGRITY OF AN INDUSTRIAL.
