Uttar Pradesh to go head hunting in colleges for doctorsJune 7th, 2009 - 12:08 pm ICT by IANS
Lucknow, June 7 (IANS) The Uttar Pradesh government is planning campus recruitment of doctors to fill nearly 5,000 vacancies in the state’s provincial medical services, an official has said.
“The move will enable us deliver better health facilities across the state, particularly in the rural areas, where people rely on community and primary health centres for medical treatment,” Director General (Medical and Health) I.S. Srivastava told IANS.
A proposal to hold campus interviews in different medical colleges of the state for recruitment of government doctors has already been prepared and the order will come within two months, he added.
According to officials, the strength of the provincial medical services is 12,000, of which nearly half are vacant.
Delay in recruitment of doctors and lethargic response of medical graduates to the vacancies advertised by the state public service commission has prompted the government to opt for campus recruitment, the official added.
The state’s Provincial and Medical Services Association (PMSA) has hailed the government’s move.
“The move will surely help to upgrade the health management system in the state. It’s good that the government will now recruit doctors through campus interviews,” said PMSA secretary B.P. Singh.
