Abstract

As India marches towards an exciting new future of growth and progress, medical education will play pivotal role in crafting a sustained development agenda. Efforts have to be undertaken to create a medical educational system that nourishes innovation, entrepreneurship and addresses the skill requirement of the growing economy. Last decade has been witness to phenomenal growth in numbers of the medical colleges, nursing colleges and other similar training institutions. This unregulated rapid growth in number of medical colleges has adversely impacted quality of training in India’s medical institutions. The policy of privatization of medical care has seriously undermined health services and further limited the access of the underprivileged. Therefore the only solution is centralization or nationalization or globalization of the entire medical education and health sectors or to join hands with world health organization, So that a uniform health cares facility can be given to each and every human being.
