Hyderabad: Doctors are unhappy with the recent notification from Kaloji Narayana Rao University of Health Sciences (KNRUHS) regarding admissions to PG, MD, MS, and Diploma courses.
There are 20 per cent clinical and 30 per cent non-clinical seats available in the university, in the government college. Doctors believe that government order 155 poses a threat to government doctors with regard to admissions in PG courses. They have demanded the order be cancelled.
Speaking of the 20% and 30% reservation in clinical and non-clinical seats which the order stipulates, “Dr Putla Srinivas, president of, Telangana Government Doctors’ Association, sought the state government to recognise the selfless services of in-service doctors during the hard times, reported Hans India.
He further stated that, if the quota is increased the hospitals would aid the state of Telangana better. He urged the government to increase the allocated seats to 30% in clinical and 50% in non-clinical courses.
The Telangana Public Health Doctors’ Association also criticised the notification labelling it as a “humiliation and disrespect to public health doctors for their relentless, selfless commitment towards public health.”
