Ms. Sangita Reddy, Executive Director - Operations, Apollo Group and Fr. E. Abraham S J, Director of XLRI (Xavier Labour Relations Institute) signed the MoU at Apollo Health City, Hyderabad today.

This unique tie-up is an initiative to address the need for professionally trained hospital managers who will be an important step to improve standards in managerial and functional areas of healthcare.

XLRI are pioneers in satellite based education programs, which bring professional training to the cities of the participants and does not disrupt their work, said Fr. Abraham - Director of XLRI.

There is a requirement in our country to double our doctors, triple our nurses and quadruple our paramedics. And to make sure that all work efficiently, we need healthcare management professionals. This tie up will go a long way in improving standards of patient care, said Dr. Pratap C. Reddy, Chairman of Apollo Group.

The programs enlisted for the initiative include
1) Post Graduate Certificate in General Management - 350hrs over 1 year

The classes will be delivered via satellite video links from XLRI Jamshedpur to Apollo Learning Centres at Hyderabad, Chennai, Bangalore, New Delhi, Kolkota, Madurai & Bilaspur. 60 individuals have been shortlisted for the training this year.

The format of the programs include fieldwork and a project in a rural setting in India, besides related hospital projects, which is indicative of the partnership's larger interest in fulfilling the need for making healthcare more inclusive.

Understaffing of Emergency Departments in United Kingdom

Understaffing of Emergency Departments in United Kingdom

The College of Emergency Medicine (CEM), UK, is today calling on the next Government to address extreme understaffing of emergency departments (EDs) and ensure a high quality, guaranteed 24x7 point of access for patients.

The College says every ED needs a minimum of 10 emergency medicine consultants to be able to deal with the large number of patients who visit the ED per year. The current average number of EM consultants per ED is 4.2 and the average number of patients attending each ED is between 70-80,000 per annum. Increasing this number will mean more consultants in EDs at the evenings and weekends, ensuring highest standards of quality and safety. Significant cost benefits will also be achieved by helping to reduce expensive or inappropriate investigations, unnecessary admissions and unsafe discharges home.

Dr John Heyworth, President of the College of Emergency Medicine said, Emergency care in the United Kingdom is currently failing to deliver the service which the public expect and deserve. The single most important factor in providing a high quality, timely and clinically effective service to patients is care led by EM consultants.

Corruption at Medical Council of India (MCI)

Corruption at Medical Council of India (MCI)

Theres an alarming lack of quality in Indias vast universe of educational institutions set up over the last decade. Its no secret that the majority havent followed rules and qualifications. All this comes from the excessive corruption rampant in Indias multiple accreditation bodies, which are responsible for approving such educational institutions. Of the 13 existing councils, five are extremely corrupt.

Of these, the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) and the now-defunct Medical Council of India (MCI), the two highest bodies for accrediting engineering and medical colleges in India, are among the most corrupt organisations in the country.
