Medical Council of India under Parliament Scrutiny

Sanjay Nagral, a surgeon practising in Mumbai and a member of the editorial board of the Indian Journal of Medical Ethics analyzes: A parliamentary committee has closely studied the failings of the Medical Council of India and has made far-reaching recommendations which, if implemented, may well transform healthcare delivery in India. The underlying disease, however, is not the failures of the MCI but the complete commercialisation of medical education and of healthcare in the era of market triumphalism. Can we join the dots and demand a more systemic change?
