In order to improve the standards of post-graduate medical education Association of National Board Accredited Institutions (ANBAI) has sent the request to the government. The request was sent so that the problem of shortage of doctors in the country can be addressed.
One of the main area focuses of the ANBAI is to bring the innovative ideas in the field of post-graduate medical education.
ANBAI said "there is a need to empower every medical staff to take primary-level medical decisions to bolster the healthcare system."
Devi Shetty, Chairman, Narayana Health issued the statement "Healthcare is the second largest industry in the world. Yet, India has approximately 300 medical colleges producing 30,000-35,000 graduates every year, while there is a need for 500 new medical colleges, producing one million doctors every year."
Shetty in the annual meeting of ANBAI also requested the government to increase the payment of the medical staff in every hospital, as this will help medical services to reach more and more people and will help in providing better health services.
H.S. Chhabra, Medical Director of Indian Spinal Injuries Centre and the Secretary of the ANBAI said, "Through ANBAI we will continue to encourage innovative ideas in post-graduate medical teaching. The organization uplifts the standards of the students, taking them to an international level."
ANBAI President Alexander Thomas said "The unequal distribution of care, in terms of urban and rural populations is a worry, especially when it comes to the shortage of specialists. By increasing the number of postgraduate seats, if we can saturate the cities, there will be no choice but for doctors to go into smaller towns and villages."
