Regulatory body to train doctors

The government is planning an overarching regulatory body, the National Council for Human Resources in Health Sector (NCHRH), to train doctors and paramedics. This will mean either scrapping of or combining the Medical Council of India, the Dental Council, Nursing Council and Councils
under Ayush. A taskforce constituted by Health Ministry will meet on July 31 to present the concept paper and action plan for NCHRH.

Key elements of the draft Bill for amendment in the Medical Education Act (Medical Council Act-1956) will later go to the Law Ministry and the PMO. The taskforce will look into shortage of doctors, ways of creating new resource, and cross-connectivity in medical education.

Sources said the decision to draft a concept paper was taken after HRD minister Kapil Sibal announced an integrated authority to sanction new professional colleges. The minister had said all regulatory agencies, including the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), Medical Council of India (MCI), Dental Council of India (DCI), are likely to be scrapped.

“The NCHRH was proposed by President Pratibha Patil in her address to the Parliament. Medical human resource and human resource development in other fields are two different things,” said an official.

Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad has said that setting up of the council is a part of a long-term policy to tackle the acute shortage of specialised doctors and trained paramedics in the country.

The taskforce includes eminent names like Dr Devi Shetty, Dr Ranjit Roy Chaudhary and Dr K S Reddy, among others.
