In India, Medical education is being suffered from various shortcomings & controversies at conceptual terms as well as in implementation level. With proportional to the expansion in medical education in India, the doctor to the patient ratio has increased enormously. But the problem is that this ratio has never been aligned with the overall quality of medical care to the patients by the doctors.
Indian medical education is suffering from a mal-distribution of resources, unregulated growth. NEET, which was brought up to fulfill the lack of unique admission procedures had brought a slight static growth but, still, the innovations must be brought up to the traditional curriculum, which lacks in innovative approaches.
To achieve higher standards of medical education, an efficient accreditation system must be created, curriculum & syllabus must be implemented with improved assessment methodologies, which will generate efficient medical graduates.
India has the highest number of medical colleges in the world and still, there is a lack of rapid expansion with the trend changes.
A clear vision must be created with the goal of creating substantial changes in Indian medical education in order to generate an innovative rapid growth in Medical Care throughout the nation.
With the spontaneous instant rapid growth of medical colleges in India now total 381, with an admission capacity to an undergraduate medical course (MBBS) of 50,068 students per year and post graduate students of 22,349 per year (Medical Colleges in India 2013).
