In a recent meeting of the Postgraduate Medical Education Committee of the Medical Council of India (MCI), the Committee derecognized the MD-Emergency Medicine for 1 seat at Vydehi Institute of Medical Sciences Bangalore. Vydehi Institute has 2 seats for MD(EM). The decision not to recognize was taken after the Committee reviewed the Assessment Report (June, 2014) on the standard of examination and other teaching facilities for Recognition of MD (Emergency Medicine) qualification at Vydehi Institute Of Medical Sciences & Research Centre, Bangalore granted by Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences, Bangalore. The Committee pointed out that several faculty members had postgraduate qualification in Medicine, Anesthesia and Orthopedics without any special training or experience in Emergency Medicine. In addition, there were other deficiencies which were pointed out in the report.
