NMC's New MBBS Seat Rule: Addressing Healthcare Disparities.



  Oct 13, 2023

NMC’s New MBBS Seat Rule: A Closer Look



The Issue:

The National Medical Commission (NMC) decided to link the number of MBBS seats to a state’s population. Specifically, they’ve set a ratio of 100 MBBS seats for every 10 lakh people in a state.

Rationale Behind the Decision:

Address regional disparities in healthcare professional availability.

Some courts had remarked on the crowding of medical colleges in the past years.

By ensuring the right teaching environment and capping seats relative to the population, the NMC aims to enhance the quality of medical education.

Criticisms:

Southern states, including Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Telangana, and Andhra Pradesh, will face challenges. Based on the new guidelines, these states can’t open new medical colleges or increase MBBS seats in current ones.

While the overall national seat count might still allow for approximately 40,000 more MBBS seats, the distribution of these seats might not be even across states.
