The image of this medical profession in India is so incredible that whosoever passes out from the medical college is considered the most qualified person.
No matter how much educated or how much uneducated we are, we admire and respect the doctors to a very big extent. We may not be aware about the intelligence as well as the experience the doctor is having, for us being a doctor is enough. The most surprising fact is that almost 90 % of people have the same thinking. They believe that being a doctor is being the son of god. A doctor is considered the best above all professions as if other professionals of other fields have not studied at all.
Let me explain you how it is a corrupt profession and from where the corruption starts. The corruption of the medical profession starts from the beginning when the students work hard to pass the pre medical test popularly called as PMT. Most of the students know the in and outs to crack the PMT and there are many illegal ways by which Students pass the PMT and the most common is bribe which we all are aware about.
Again after PMT the students are confused as they either have to choose the dental world or the anatomy world. well surprisingly the dental world in india is considered low and degraded when compared to MBBS and other medicine lines. Students and parents want their child to be MBBS rather than being a BDS and in most of the cases students choose BDS just because they have not got the admission in MBBS. Although BDS does not have much value in the society in India but BDS Field is not less than MBBS when it comes to corruption.
As the students approach for medical colleges, most of the medical colleges are just like 5 star hotels who are ready to fetch money. They are not concerned with your marks and caliber as most of the colleges like and invite the students who can pay bribe. For colleges the bribe is called as donation which is obviously in lakhs and crores depending on the subject of the medical science. For dental world the bribe is in lakhs but in case of MBBS the bribe even goes in crores.
Generally there are very few students who actually work hard and get selected on the basis of marks rest most of the students offer donations to get the favorite department.
Moreover most of the PG students are appointed as the teachers just after their graduation by these colleges no matter how much unqualified or inexperienced they are. The PG students are generally at a very less pay which is again a best thing for colleges who only want to fill up the posts.
Most of the students compromise and please their teachers with gifts and money as they have already spend millions in the donation and fees and they don't want to ruin their carrier just for some more lakhs.
The internship students in the medical colleges are a night mare for common man as the patients are not aware about the doctors who are doing the treatment. Patients are just like a dead body for these learning doctors as they experiment their inefficiencies on the patients. The patient comes under the trap of free treatment or discounted treatment and get themselves exploited by intern doctors.
