Mandatory 2 year rural practice for UP doctors

September 25, 2019

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has said that doctors graduating from government medical colleges in UP with an MBBS degree will have to work in villages for two years. The two year tenure will be mandatory and doctors will be asked to sign bonds to this effect.

Those who are going for higher studies after their MBBS degrees will be exempted but doctors with MD and MS qualifications will be required to work in rural areas for a year.

"The doctors will be made to fill up bonds. Those who did MD and MS will also work for one year in rural areas and no one will be allowed to influence the government for an internship," said CM Adityanath.

The decision aims to fulfill the shortage of doctors in the rural parts of Uttar Pradesh.

Adityanath made the announcements during an event to celebrate the first anniversary of the Ayushman Bharat Diwas.

He spoke about the success of various schemes such as the Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana ,CM Jan Arogya Yojana scheme and golden cards.

CM Adityanath said, "We had to face several challenges when we launched this scheme around a year back. There was a dire need to make the benefits of this scheme reach the beneficiaries in a time-bound manner. We chalked out such a strategy that could help in making this scheme reach the citizens."

Social media users responded to the announcement.

Dr K Kant tweeted, "@the_hindu Same cliche, will work provided they have better schools for their kids. Higher pay and remuneration and above all security. See in other countries all doctors and teachers in primary set up get very high emoluments than urban counterparts."
