After Russia Invaded Areas Of Various Cities Of Ukraine, many medical students there were forced to return home somehow. However, under Operation Ganga, the Government of India made every effort for their safe return. Despite this, all the students had to cross the border of Ukraine hungry and thirsty and return to India via neighboring Romania or Poland. It was an unforgettable experience for all of them. Due to fewer seats, admission in MBBS colleges in India through NEET is not available. Also, due to the total fees of the management quota being more than one crore rupees, students who want to study medicine have to go out of India. Such children move to Ukraine, Russia, Kazakhstan, Philippines, Kyrgyzstan, Georgia, Armenia, Nepal, Bangladesh. In such countries, they get a chance to do MBBS for 20 to 25 lakhs.
MBBS Colleges In India
However, students pursuing MBBS from abroad have to pass the Foreign Medical Graduate Examination to practice in India. In this also the success rate is significantly less. The Ukraine crisis has shattered the dreams of thousands of students studying there. Looking at the current situation, no one can say when the conditions will be expected. Given the massive devastation in Ukraine, the possibility of online classes also seems unlikely. No parent wants to send their children so far for education. He blamed the previous governments and said that earlier attention was not paid in this direction. It is why such a large number of Indian students have to go abroad to study medicine.
However, it has also been revealed in a report that in the last five years, the number of medical colleges in the country has increased from 300 to 700. The seats available in medical colleges have also increased from 70000 to 1.5 lakh. In such a situation, it is expected that students who want to study medicine will not have to leave the country in the coming days. It is proposed to open one medical college in every district. A few days ago, the Prime Minister had also appealed to the private sector to take the initiative in this direction.
Presently, NEET Is Conducted Every Year by NTA for admission to MBBS colleges in India. Through this, access is given to the country’s government and private medical colleges. But due to fewer seats, only a limited number of admissions are available. The irony is that the difference between the fees of government and private medical colleges is sky-high. Due to the limited number of seats in government colleges, not everyone can get admission. Due to the high fees of private medical colleges, Medical education remains a dream for a child of a middle-class family.
The Ukraine crisis has forced the government to think about it. Such steps should be taken expeditiously by the government so that parents are not forced to send their children abroad for studies. In India, in the name of admission in MBBS by private institutions, making huge donations and then charging high fees is an excellent example of making education a means of earning. Despite the acute shortage of doctors in the country, no initiative was taken to open more medical colleges. Apart from this, the private sector was also not motivated for this.
