District Residency Programme for PG medicos to infuse life into States' decaying medical services
ANALYSIS: The novel rotational District Residency Programme for PG medicos will trigger a revolution in the medicare system in the countryside. Because it will have far-reaching implications for the healthcare delivery in India. Being rotational, it will be continuously pumping fresh blood into the stagnant district medical services, stinking since Independence. The medical services in the States will be redefined. This will also be a welcome change for the medicos unlike the earlier compulsory rural service scheme begotten by some sick minds, which was a total failure ending in wastage of funds and loss of precious services as nobody took it up.

NEW DELHI, Sept 27: The Centre has made it mandatory for all post-graduate medical students pursuing MD or MS in the country to undergo a compulsory posting for three months at the district hospitals in the States as part of their medical course curriculum starting from the 2020-21 academic year.

The rotation, called District Residency Programme (DRP), will be in the 3rd or 4th or 5th semester of the post-graduate programme. The DRP will be implemented with the PG batch joining in 2020-2021. The student undergoing the training will be called District Resident, the notification said.

The main objectives of the DRP are:-

  1. To expose the post-graduate student to the district health system and involve them in health care services being provided at the district hospital for learning while serving;
  2. To acquaint them with the planning, implementation, monitoring and assessment of outcomes of the national health programmes at the district level;
  3. To orient them to promotive, preventive, curative and rehabilitative services being provided by various categories of healthcare professionals under the umbrella of National Health Mission.

The district hospital should be at least 100-bedded with all facilities.

Satisfactory completion of the residency shall be an essential condition to appear in the final examination of the post-graduate course.

The concerned State Government will provide appropriate amenities to the residents. The residents will also get additional honorarium for their contribution to the healthcare services of the State. They will continue to draw full stipend/salary from their medical colleges.

The MCI's gazette notification has laid down the details of the programme.

The residents would be working under specialists at the district hospitals and would be working in outpatient, inpatient, casualty and other areas, and encompass night duties, PG medical of pre/para clinical disciplines (namely, Anatomy; Biochemistry; Community Medicine; Forensic Medicine; Microbiology; Pathology; Physiology; and Pharmacology) would be trained in and contribute to the diagnostic/laboratory services, pharmacy services, forensic services, general clinical duties, managerial roles and public health programs, etc., as applicable.

The district residents will serve in outpatient, inpatient, casualty and other areas, and will do night duties. The district resident will work under the overall directions and supervision of the District Residency Programme Coordinator (DRPC).

The programme will be coordinated jointly by the Department/Directorate of Medical Education and the Department /Directorate of Health Services with the MCI constituting a National Steering Committee to guide and oversee the programme.

The MCI has amended the Post-graduate Medical Education Regulations, 2000 for the purpose.
