GMC faces staff shortage
Required Staff Will Be Inducted Soon: Principal
Srinagar, Aug 15: The Government Medical College (GMC), Srinagar, is facing acute shortage of faculty members thereby adversely affecting the functioning of the institution.
“The department of micro-biology is run by the one assistant professor and two lecturers. Similarly department of physiology is run by one assistant professor and two lecturers,” sources said. “The assistant professor in the department is nominated, not officially appointed”.
As per the rulings of Medical Council of India the college is recognized for Post Graduation and Under Graduate courses, when each department is run by one professor (having 12 years of experience), two officially appointed associate professors, two assistant professors, and 5 to 6 lecturers.
Like wise the other non-clinical departments like biochemistry, pharmacology and pathology are facing shortage of lecturers. “Only the department of Anatomy has full faculty.”
Due to shortage of staff the education of undergraduates and post graduate students has been hit.
“The admission of post-graduates in different departments depends upon the capacity of the professors,” sources said. “Hence a few post graduates are being enrolled for the courses”.
Contrary to GMC Srinagar, the Jammu Medical College has staff in full strength almost in all departments.
Keeping in view the shortage of teaching staff, the Government has suggested appointments of lecturer on contractual basis as an immediate measure to address the issue.
Posts were advertised as (No.GS-MC/Avert/L/2010/177), on May 26, 2010 by Public Service Commission, but till date no candidate has been called for an interview.
When contacted Principal GMC, Qazi Masood said, “We have written to the Government to advertise posts on academic arrangements for different departments. I hope the required staff will be inducted in different departments of college within a month.”
He, however, said the PG students were being enrolled in college and guides were available to them.
