What ails Medical Education in India

  • Published
    10th Mar, 2022

India’s medical education system has attracted a lot of adverse attention due to the crisis in Ukraine and the resultant need for evacuating medical students, delay in post-graduate counselling because of reservation-related litigation and Tamil Nadu legislating to opt out of NEET. 

Status of Medical Education in India

  • At present India has 554 medical colleges that annually provide 82,950 MBBS seats.
  • In order to cater to the increasing requirements of society, the government is promoting the opening of new medical colleges and increasing the number of seats in existing medical colleges.
  • It is estimated that by 2024 India would achieve a ratio of 1.03 doctors per 1000 population
