Government Medical Colleges in J-K start PG courses
New Government Medical Colleges (GMCs) in Jammu and Kashmir have been accredited for Diplomate of National Board (DNB) courses in various departments, an official spokesman said on Saturday, marking a significant achievement for the healthcare department. The accredited institutions will receive two PG candidates in the certified stream per year as a result of this, according to the spokesman. According to the spokesperson, approved institutions will receive two PG candidates in the qualified stream each year as a result of this. The National Board of Examinations (NBE) has approved 30 Super Specialty and Limited Specialty courses so far, with the Union Territory scheduled to obtain 58 seats.
NBE has granted two seats in the department of Anesthesia to GMC-Doda, two seats in the department of Community Medicine and two seats in Pediatrics to GMC-Kathua, two seats in the department of Dermatology to GMC-Anantnag, and provisional accreditation to GMC-Rajouri in the department of Orthopedics to GMC-Anantnag, according to the spokesman.
According to the spokesperson, GMC-Jammu has also earned accreditation in the Hospital Administration and Psychiatry departments. He reported that the GMC-Srinagar has been granted accreditation in the Anatomy and Physiology departments of DrNB Neuro-Surgery and SKIMS Srinagar and that two seats have been accepted in each of these accredited departments.
DNB courses have been implemented in district hospitals, new GMCs, and SKIMS, in addition to old GMCs and SKIMS, to reinforce institutions, decongest GMCs, and resolve the shortage of specialists in the Union Territory, according to the spokesman. He said that the institutions of Jammu and Kashmir were given a total of 42 seats and that 21 candidates have already enrolled in the various accredited streams.
Eight district hospitals, all GMCs, and SKIMS had applied for DNB courses to the NBE under the dynamic leadership and concerted efforts of the Financial Commissioner, Health and Medical Education Department, Atal Duloo, and Mission Director, NHM, J&K, Choudhary Mohammed Yasin. "The institutions submitted a total of 129 applications, of which 23 applications from old GMCs/SKIMS, five applications from new GMCs, and two applications from District Hospitals were accepted by NBE, and a total of 58 seats were granted to accredited departments as a result of the institutions' concerted efforts and hard work," the spokesman said. Furthermore, he stated that the NBE has reviewed 28 more divisions of District Hospitals and GMCs, and that accreditation is pending.
NHM J&K has obtained additional staff nurse approval for DNB institutions in order to follow the Indian Public Health Standards (IPHS) norms, and 42 additional nurses have been given to each district hospital implementing the DNB program, according to the spokesman. NHM, he said, had given additional beds, as well as accessories and monitors, to these hospitals. According to the spokesman, the Centre has also approved the establishment of an eight-bed Hybrid ICU in each DNB district hospital. According to him, these steps are projected to dramatically boost health care coverage in rural areas, as well as services in tertiary care institutions. "It is also expected to substantially minimize referrals from far-flung districts to the Union Territory's already overburdened tertiary care institutes," the spokesman said.
