Medical services in rural India

Medical services in rural India suffer from shortage of doctors. To address this issue, The Indian Health Ministry and Medical Council of India (MCI) have proposed to create and train doctors under the category, Bachelor in Rural Medicine and Surgery (BRMS). Some parts of the Indian medical association feel that this will only create poorly qualified and ill trained doctors because there is already a shortage of medical teachers in India. Lacking a comprehensive medical study, a BRMS doctor may mismanage patients leading to complications and even death. Also, the objective of providing medical care for rural India can never be met by creating this new category for doctors because these doctors may eventually migrate and start practising in urban areas. DoctorNDTV conducted the following survey to find out what the lay man thought about this.
