The National Medical Commission (NMC) is seeking comments from the stakeholders including general public on draft Teachers Eligibility and Minimum Qualification in Medical Institutions Regulation, 2021.

The draft regulation stated that the appointment and promotion of faculty in various teaching specialties imparting graduate and postgraduate medical education in medical institutions falling within the purview of the NMC, has to be in accordance with the minimum qualifications and experience prescribed in these regulations, so as to maintain a standard of teaching in medical institutions.

The maximum age limit up to which a person can be appointed or granted extension or re-employed in service against the posts of teachers or deans or principal or director, as the case may be, which are required to be filled up as per the norms of the NMC in any medical college or teaching institutions for imparting graduate and post-graduate medical education shall be 70 years, the draft regulation said.

The regulation further stated that all medical teachers must possess a basic university or equivalent qualification included in any one of the Schedules to the Indian Medical Council Act, 1956 (102 of 1956) and National Medical Commission Act, 2019 and they must also be registered in a State Medical Register or National Medical Register, except in the case of teachers with non-medical qualifications.

The appointing authority may consider holders of equivalent postgraduate qualifications, which may be approved by the National Medical Commission from time to time, to be the requisite recognized qualification in the subject concerned.

The regulation further said that those candidates who have undergone DNB training in a multi-specialty teaching hospital with at least 500 beds, involved in various postgraduate/super-specialty teaching programmes, such a qualification shall be considered at par with NMC recognized qualification.

The draft stated that the position of director of standalone postgraduate super specialty institution shall be held by a person possessing recognized postgraduate degree from a recognized institution with a minimum of ten years teaching experience as professor/associate professor, out of which, at least five years should be as professor.

NMC added, "For holders of MD - Ph.D. in medical subjects, the period spent during Ph.D. shall be considered equivalent to senior resident period and they are eligible for direct appointment as assistant professors in the concerned subject."
