SCB Medical College affected by shortage of senior faculty members

CUTTACK: The transfer of senior teaching staff from the SCB College of Medicine and Hospital to the newly established medical college and hospital has seriously disrupted the operation of the state’s main public hospital.

Within a month, up to 26 senior professors were transferred from SCB KIA to other medical colleges and hospitals in exchange for sending only four. In addition, three senior KIA SCB specialists also retired between January and March this year.

There are currently no teachers in the departments of nephrology, microbiology and physiology. Positions created after senior professors retire or move have not been filled, which has serious implications for patient care, the SCB Association of Young Physicians said, while urging state governments to cancel recent transfers and accept existing positions immediately.

“More than 700 PG students and 1,000 MBBS students are currently studying in various majors. “Scientific and research work has been impacted by an acute shortage of senior faculty,” said SCB JDA President Dr. Abhishek Biual at a press conference.

On March 11, the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare issued notices regarding the promotion and transfer of teachers from various medical schools and hospitals across the country. While 16 assistant professors were promoted to associate professors, 22 associate professors were promoted to professors.

Of these, 12 associate professors and 11 assistant MC SKB were promoted. However, nine professors have been transferred to medical colleges in Keondjar, Sundargarh, Koraput and elsewhere, but there has been no replacement. Similarly, 10 of the 12 associate professors who were also promoted to professor were transferred to other medical schools, while only two professors were appointed, according to the medical board.
