MD/MS students at Adesh University seek early final exams
Bathinda Postgraduate students of 2018 batch at Adesh University’s Institute of Medical Sciences and Research in the district have written to the National Medical Commission (NMC) to intervene and press upon the varsity authorities to conduct their final exams at the earliest.
A student said their three-year academic tenure for MD/MS courses ended in May, but the university had not even declared a date sheet for their exams. “The delay means that our chance to study further for super-specialty courses from this year could be wasted,” she added.
President of the Malwa chapter of the Association of Physicians of India, Dr Vitull K Gupta, said, “Other medical colleges in the state have started the process to hold exams. In a letter to medical institutions on June 22, even the NCM had advised these to start conducting exams.”
Institute principal Rajiv Mahajan said, “The pandemic has led to the delay in conduct of exams across the country. With the NCM giving its go-ahead, we will announce the exam dates soon.”
