Check on your doctor before check-up


Check on your doctor before check-up, 1 in 5 via management quota
Back-of-the-envelope calculations show that about 1 out of every 5 doctors passing out each year could be those who bought seats in medical colleges. 
 
The huge amount of money which politicians can make out of capitation fees and management quotas has led to an explosion of medical diploma mills ( who are allowed to call themselves medical colleges) which churn out doctors who are poorly trained and poorly qualified. Sadly, the Medical Council of India has failed sadly in ensuring medical education standards are met - it's easy to make doctors buckle under political pressure.

All the more reason that patients need to do their homework before seeing a doctor. Just the fact that your doctor has a MD degree is no longer enough evidence of his competence !
