medical M.Sc faculty in India


Medical M.Sc courses in Anatomy, Physiology, Biochemistry, Pharmacology or Microbiology have been conducted in the medical colleges in India since 1950s. These courses were once included in the First Schedule of the Indian Medical Council Act (1956) and the medical colleges used to seek MCI's nod to start these courses. Currently, MCI neither regulates these courses nor registers persons with this degree. There is no count of number of persons who have acquired this degree since the inception of these courses. Therefore, a need was felt to bring all medical M.Sc degree holder under one registered association.

A clarion call is being sounded to invite all eligible medical M.Sc persons to register in NMMTA as life-members. All medical M.Sc degree holder, irrespective of their profession are requested to enrol in NMMTA to strengthen it. From the data available in MCI's website (2017), around 13% of teaching faculty in medical colleges are 'non-medical'.
