Super-specialists declared ineligible after interview
Srinagar, Dec 15: Super-specialists who have completed three years as adhoc lecturers in Government Medical College here on Thursday decried government’s decision to declare them as ineligible for senior positions.
Talking to Greater Kashmir a group of senior doctors said, “We have already completed three years as lecturers in GMC and were supposed to be promoted as senior faculty positions through a proper interview.”
They said that GMC through a notification invited applications for various posts in September 2011 for academic arrangement basis initially for a period of one year. “We applied for these posts. The eligibility criterion for the assistant professor was fixed as three years experience as lecturer in the concerned discipline. We appeared for the interview on October 1 and 2 respectively after our applications were accepted formally,” doctors said.
However, soon after the interview Principal GMC wrote a letter GS-MC/ADV/2011 to Commissioner Secretary Health and Medical Education Department stating that promotion to higher posts for those in-service doctors who have only adhoc/contractual experience has not been considered.
Doctors alleged the letter was written ‘owing to some pressure from faculty members’.
Substantiating their claim doctors said, “Had we been ineligible GMC authorities would have rejected our applications before the interview itself. How did they allow us to appear for the interview at first place?”
“After the post interview stage, the faculty members pressurized the principal to stall the selection process,” disclosed an insider.
The apex body, Medical Council of India, in its guidelines states three years teaching experience from a recognized medical college as resident registrar or demonstrator for the post of assistant professor.
“Let Government call for lateral entry through proper recruiting agency like Public Service Commission. Everyone will face competition so that real talent comes to fore,” they added.
Despite repeated attempts Principal GMC Srinagar Prof Qazi Masood didn’t respond to repeated calls.
