NEXT-A new way to medical education in India with EXIT Exam

{ Posted on 8:42 PM by V.C.Dave }

Government of India is inviting suggestions form all stakeholders for major change in medical education of India. The new addition in MCI bill will be known as "Exit Exam, Counselling for MBBS course and Post Graduate courses in medical colleges/institutions in India".

The amendment in bill says that there will be one designated body who will conduct National Exit Exam (NEXT) for all MBBS students in India. Also this NEXT will act as substitute of NEET-PG exam.

There is a suggestion of common counselling for UG and PG at same time. There shall be conducted a common counselling for admission of candidates to all medical educational institutions at the undergraduate level and postgraduate level. Counselling for 15% All India Quota seats at undergraduate level and 50% All India Quota seats at postgraduate level shall be conducted by Directorate General of Health Services and for remaining seats including Private Colleges and Private/Deemed Universities at the undergraduate level and postgraduate level shall be conducted through such designated authority by the concerned State Governments/UTs.

This modification is also suggested for students coming from out side India, they will not have to appear for screening test. They will also appear for NEXT as per interpretation. (No clarity in present write up)

Further "Upto 50% of the seats in Post Graduate Courses in Government Colleges may be reserved by the appropriate State Governments/UTs for Medical Officers in the Government services, who have served for at least three years in remote and difficult areas. After acquiring the PG Degree, the Medical Officers may further be required to serve for a period up to three years in remote and/or difficult areas by the State Governments/UTs concerned. Admissions to this quota would strictly be on the basis of NEXT merit list only. "

There is urgent need to write on this bill. Government is inviting suggestions and feedback on this by 6th Jan 2017 - General Public is hereby requested to send suggestions/feedback in respect of the draft Bill. Suggestions may be furnished to by 06.01.2017.
