Media coverage of Sri Devaraj URS Medical College, Kolar Gold Fields Karnataka, Karnataka

NAAC report of Sri Devraj Urs Medical College

Section 1: Introduction
Sri Devaraj Urs Medical College started in 1986 and situated in Rural Area at Kolar, is affiliated with Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences, Bangalore, Karnataka. The undergraduate degree MBBS is recognized by the Medical Council of India, New Delhi with annual intake of 150 students. 10 Post Graduate Degree courses are recognized by MCI and 5 PG Programmes are still to be recognized by the MCI, though the approval to start the courses has been given. Post Graduate Diploma courses in 7 specialities are also being conducted in the college with the permission of the MCI.

The College prepared the Self-Study Report (SSR) based on the guidelines of the NAAC and same is submitted to NAAC in the month of February 2006. NAAC constituted the Peer Team to visit the College. The team comprised of Prof. Dr. Snehalatha Deshmukh, Former Vice-Chancellor of University of Mumbai, Maharashtra as Chairperson; Prof. Dr. T. Kamal Sheriff, Former Dean, Tamil Nadu Dr. M G R Medical University, Chennai, Tamil Nadu; and Prof. Dr. A. K. Agarwal, School of Health Sciences, Indira Gandhi National Open University, New Delhi as Members; Mr. B. S. Ponmudiraj, Assistant Advisor from NAAC facilitated the Peer Team.

The team interacted with the management, the Principal, Director, Medical Director, Superintendent, Teaching staff, Postgraduate students, Undergraduate students, Parents and Alumni Association.

The institution has a college building and attached Hospital. The campus area is 72 acres 13 guntas. Clinical, Pre-clinical, Para-clinical Departments are housed in the college building and lecture rooms seminar halls are well equipped.

The college has also applied for ISO certification and is in the process of improving the research activities as well as involving with national and international activities.

Section 2: Criterion-wise Analysis
Criterion I: Curricular Aspects
The college has been running MBBS course with 150 annual admissions and as per the necessary infrastructure required by the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences and MCI. The college is also running 15 post graduates, 10 of which recognized by MCI and 5 permitted by MCI. The college also runs 7 diploma courses, permitted by MCI. The Postgraduates are given adequate teaching by didactic lectures, bedside clinics, seminars, workshops, symposia and hand on training.

The curriculum prescribed by the university is strictly adhered to, as regards the course contents, the number of teaching hours, and the clinical posting of the students.

The college has the infrastructure of class rooms which are well ventilated, spacious and have facilities for power point presentation and audio visual presentations. The curriculum as prescribed by the university is strictly followed however there are additions in the teaching programmes done by the teachers taking into consideration the need of the society. An example in point is the AIDS control, and the various infectious diseases which are prevalent in the rural areas. There is no attempt to integrate teaching programme and this may be introduced in future.

Criterion II: Teaching-Learning and Evaluation
Admissions are based for the undergraduates and postgraduates on 50:50 basis i.e. 50% based on the marks secured at the Government C.E.T. examinations and 50% management quota through the test known as COMED-Karnataka. The NRI component of 15% is within the management quota. The eligibility criteria for SC, ST & OBC candidates in entrance test is 40%. During the interaction it was found that the standard of the students was quite good. Credit should be given to the institution for certain merited students. While further interacting with the staff and students it was found that a lot of attention was being paid to the slow learners and also to the additional students in the form of tutorial classes. These students are divided into batches of 10 under a staff member and special attention is paid to them. In short there seems to be an effective method of implementing teaching and learning programmes.

The staff recruitment is based on advertisements in the News papers and management is keen on recruiting qualified and merited teachers. There seems to be the disparity as regards the staff in various departments. While non-clinical departments like Anatomy, Community Medicine and Forensic Medicine are understaffed, clinical departments like Medicine and Surgery seem to be overstaffed. The non-clinical departments of Physiology, Biochemistry, Pathology, Microbiology and Pharmacology are postgraduate departments and on the clinical side General Medicine, Paediatrics, Dermatology, General Surgery, Ophthalmology, Orthopaedics, ENT, OBG, Anaesthesiology, Radio-Diagnosis are postgraduate departments. Generally the staff and infrastructure in both clinical and non-clinical departments are good wherever the postgraduate programs are going on. It is bound to improve in the other departments also with the little encouragement from the management side. The staff in all the departments are energetic and seem to take keen interest in teaching programmes but they seem to lack in taking up research activities.

The teaching is both didactic lectures / practical in the laboratory, case demonstration, ward rounds, bed side clinics, emergency management, basic procedures like starting intervenous fluids, dressings, conducting deliveries, minor surgical procedures and mother and child health care.

The teaching days are 180 and 75% of attendance is compulsory in all subjects.

Three internal assessment examinations are conducted, the 35% marks are reserved for internal examination.

Students are inquisitive, motivated, they are keen learners and are also participating in seminars and symposia. Students in the ENT department participated in the programmes conducted by the associations and they are recipients of Gold Medals.

The students who do not perform well in internal exams are given extra coaching by the teachers and there was improvement in the performance.

In all the subjects the performance of the students at the final examination has been steadily improving.

The teachers take keen interest in the students academic development.

Interaction with the students revealed that they are satisfied with the teaching process.
The library is spacious and is accessible to students.

There are regular continuing medical education programmes, guest lectures, clinical meetings, seminars and symposia.

There is a nursing school attached to the hospital.

The staff is knowledgeable, enthusiastic and committed and the management has provided facilities for those who are coming from far off areas. There is a hospital infection committee and ethical committee.

The various departments have also well furnished lecture halls with provision for projection facilities which is commendable as the use of these facilities make the lectures interesting. The ratio of student teacher is also maintained in most of the departments. As regards evaluating the teachers performance , more thought has to be given so that a fool proof system is developed to assess their performance and this has to be done on a regular basis. There is a medical education unit in the College, however, it needs upgradation. Some of the faculty members have undergone the specialized training in teaching technology either at Pondicherry or at Belgaum. Those who have undergone this training are only eager to upgrade the Unit and train their colleagues. The teaching faculty is a fulltime faculty and there are no part-time teachers.

The College functions 6 days a week and the total number of working days is 285 and the working hours are from 8 AM to 4 PM with a lunch interval between 1 PM and 2 PM. As far as the teaching programmes are concerned the guidelines of Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences and MCI are followed. The College also has centralized facility of the audio visual aids, and all the departments have been supplied with computers. Total teaching strength in the College is 222 out of which 160 are male and 62 are female. There are 7 Ph.Ds and 174 with postgraduate qualifications. All the departments have museums, with very good specimens, charts and posters. Special mention has to be made about the Anatomy museum and the Forensic Medicine department museum which are of very high standard. On the clinical side special mention has to be made about the ENT department and the Paediatrics department which are doing commendable work and need further encouragement from the management. Special attention towards planning and implementing community outreach activities is necessary in departments like Community Medicine, Paediatrics and OBG departments. There is a lacunae in the staff position of the Community Medicine department which has to be rectified at the earliest so that faculty members could be posted in the RHTC as well as the Urban centre attached to the College. The Ophthalmology department has been involving itself in a lot of community outreach programmes by organizing various camps and serving the rural poor.

Some of the faculty members have been regularly presenting papers in national conferences and also publishing the same in the National Journals. They need further encouragement so that they also send papers for publication in the International Journals. National and International linkages need special attention as nothing worthwhile has been done in this regard. The members of the peer team feel that much more can be achieved with the facilities and infrastructure available specially when the staff seem to be well motivated towards extending its expertise to the community at large and also in the field of research.

Criterion III: Research, Consultancy and Extension
Research, consultancy and extensions service seem to be the weak points of the institution. Baring the usual research related to the topics allotted to the post graduate students as their thesis work which is a must for submission to the University before they take up their examinations, not much of original research work has been under taken by the institution. For research work to be under taken by an institution, linkages should be established with the funding agencies like Departments of Science and Technology, ICMR, UGC, NACO, UNICEF etc. This seems to be lacking in the institution. Research activity should also be encouraged by the management by setting apart a fund exclusively so that small research projects could be taken up which do not require much funds. It is found that in some of the departments like Physiology, Pathology linkages have been established with Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences and some funding has been received for the research projects. Special mention is to be made of the Microbiology department for its initiative in forming an Hospital Infection Control Committee and for actively taking up studies to control infection and also render its expert advice. The Pharmacology department has also been undertaking research work in a limited way. Prescription Audit which is an important aspect of hospital administration has not been under taken and it would also be beneficial to have its own drug formulary. Special mention is to be made about the work being done by the ENT department which has a good team leader as its Head of Department and faculty who are interested in original research work.

As regards extension services in the community much is to be desired as not much attention has been paid to it except for the good work being done by the Ophthalmology department. It is the opinion of the Peer Team that much more could be done in this regard by the departments of Community Medicine, Paediatrics and OBG working together in tandem and providing their services at the community level. A concerted effort is needed with the backing of the management towards extending the services.

Medical institutions do have role in providing consultancy services though not in the real sense of the word. There is much to be desired as far as providing consultancy services and sharing of the expertise in this institution. The only redeeming feature is that the Pharmacology department has been able to interact with the drug industry and a few clinical trials are being undertaken. Much more could be done specially when the infrastructure available in the institution is good. There could be linkages developed with smaller institutions and sharing of knowledge and expertise could be attempted.

It is also felt by the peer team that there is further scope of improving the computer internet facilities being provided to the students at the Library. More computers with high configuration, and broadband facility could be provided specially when there are so many postgraduate students in this institution.

The Departments of Paediatrics, Anatomy, Physiology, Pharmacology, Microbiology, Pathology, Forensic Medicine, Anaesthesiology, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, ENT, Ophthalmology, Dermatology have been participating in conferences and presenting papers. However there could be more emphasis on research projects taken up and there could be improvement in national and international publications. Funding could be sought from ICMR, DBT, DST, NAMS, MCI and UGC for minor and major research projects.

Criterion IV: Infrastructure and Learning Resources
The Peer Team visited most of the Departments, Support Services, Library, UG / PG Hostels, Staff Quarters, Hospital and related administration and financial services.

The management is committed for improving the facilities to the teachers and the students.

An availability of latest equipment like, Sonography, CT-Scan, Eco-cardiography, Laparoscopy, is appreciated.

Motivation for ISO certification is also a step forward.

The Para-Medical and Non-teaching staff is dedicated.

The working hours of the library may be further extended and the undergraduate students may be permitted to use the library even during morning (9AM to 4 PM) also.

Management may provide the Group Health Insurance Scheme with active subsidies for both the Health Insurance and Indemnity Insurance.

Students may be encouraged to actively participate in Sports Activities and incentives to the best sportspersons may be thought of. The College should encourage more Cultural activities of different types. Both UG's and PG's should be encouraged to participate in indoor and outdoor games, debate clubs, cultural programmes etc. This will improve physical and mental health of the students.

The Hostel facilities both for UG and PG need to be given special attention for improving the sanitation in the toilets and quality food.

The Alumni Association may make itself an active body and may undertake activities such as preparing directory with complete address, organizing cultural and academic activities periodically, including the annual day celebrations. For all this the management should support the alumni association in undertaking such activities. The funds colleted under the 'alumni head' may be transferred to this registered body.
