Teachers have submitted a memorandum to Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik here on Friday to fulfill their demands. More than 200 teachers are employed in various government medical colleges of the state. He was appointed through a selection process conducted by the Odisha Public Service Commission (OPSC).
Some of these, who were employed in block, subdivision and district level hospitals, have been deputed in these medical colleges. “We have all worked as faculty in medical colleges for nearly 7-8 years including senior residency and assistant professors. We are the backbone of these hospitals, ”said an assistant professor.

He said that for so many years, he has been kept as a faculty in the annual ‘Medical Council of India’ review. “We have been involved in both the treatment and teaching of undergraduate / postgraduate students for so many years and we are now part of Kovid-19 related activities like treatment of patients as well as management of Kovid hospitals in various fields. State, ”he said.
Another assistant professor said that the OPSC examination for permanent assistant professors at Government Medical College has not been conducted during the last four years. “Many of us have crossed the age limit to appear in the next OPSC exam which may be held in future (uncertain). Some of us will cross the age limit in the near future. ”
He said that with the opening of many new government medical colleges and the retirement of many senior faculties from almost all departments, there will be a shortage of senior faculties like Associate Professor and Professor in future. “Even new medical colleges require more faculties to maintain or increase MBBS seats or to open MD / MS seats in future as per MCI rules. Our 7-8 years of experience as teachers will be of great help in the medical education system. ”
Assistant professors in the memorandum said they were appointed at a critical time when the state was in dire need of MCI accreditation to increase MBBS seats to meet the state’s health care needs and seats in colleges. “We lose our precious years and seniority due to not conducting OPSC exams from time to time and it would be very unfair for all of us if we have to compete with freshers for seats. This is a request to regularize our services. ”
