There are 20 doctors available for every one thousand people in developed countries. There is only one bed for every 350 people in the USA, one bed for every 85 people in Japan, and one bed for every 1050 people in India. We need another lakh beds for our country to reach this level.
In the US alone, there are 32,000 seats in PG medical education, while for UG MBBS education there are only 19,000 seats. It is for this reason that many Indian medical students are able to go to the US and study higher education. The proportion of doctors in the US is four times that of India. This became possible due to the USMLE exams for medical students of other countries, based on their passing Opportunity and visa regulations.
Considering the situation in our country, 4% of students who want to study MBBS, seats are not available for them. It is estimated that there are about 32,000 medical PG seats available in India. But the number of people who are sitting for the PG entrance exam is 1.40 lakh. There is also a shortage of teaching staff in colleges that allow DNP qualified students to teach. Increasing the retirement age of central government doctors from 62 years to 65 years is also a part of the shortage.
Diseases that cause people’s deaths in our country are- heart, liver, brain, lungs, and diarrhea. According to the regulations of the Medical Council of India, only those doctors who are suffering from these diseases need to be treated. But only those who have read MBBS have no expertise in the treatment of these diseases and are not qualified to treat them. Keeping these circumstances in mind, it is clear that even if the present PG seats are doubled, the future needs of our country will not be met.
Students with medical education may consider trying this through an MCI screening test, FMGERA. The government has no way to overcome the shortage of doctors in our country.
We cannot change the circumstances, but we can mold ourselves according to the circumstances. So students who decide to study MBBS abroad will have the perseverance, dedication, and discipline along with proper planning to be able to excel in the USMLE, MCI and NEET PG exams. What is in the hands is unmistakable. We have seen many students study abroad before becoming great doctors.
