The Nashik based Maharashtra University of Health Sciences (MUHS) has rejected the applications for renewal of affiliation of 75 colleges teaching various disciplines of medical science. The vice chancellor of MUHS, Dr Arun Jamkar, told reporters on Thursday 28th July that the varsity has taken the step as these colleges failed to fulfill the criteria for imparting medical education to students. Jamkar said that all the 280 colleges affiliated to MUHS under various disciplines of medical science have to seek renewal. These colleges have to fulfill the prescribed criteria, including staff strength, course compliance, educational infrastructure and facilities provided.
The immediate fallout of the MUHS move is that these colleges cannot take fresh admissions. "Students seeking admissions should check the varsity website www.muhsnashik.com to ensure that their desired institute figures in the list of affiliated colleges," Jamkar said. "A committee appointed by the MUHS visits the colleges to examine whether the criteria have been met or not. The panel then submits a report to the varsity, which is discussed in the academic council before granting affiliation," he said.
According to him, the varsity had received many complaints from parents and students studying in different colleges. "Moreover, the officer of the chancellor of the varsity has been stressing on improving the quality of medical education. All these factors were discussed at the academic council meeting, which decided to take a policy decision on granting affiliation based on fulfillment of basic criteria," Jamkar said.
Initially, 122 colleges that failed to fulfill the criteria were given three months time to make amends. "Of these, 47 colleges fulfilled the criteria and became eligible for renewal of affiliation," Jamkar said. The colleges whose affiliation were cancelled include five dental colleges, 10 Ayurveda and Unani colleges, six homeopathy colleges, 11 physiotherapy colleges, four occupational therapy colleges, 26 basic nursing colleges, 10 post-basic nursing colleges, and three Bachelor in Audiology and Speech, Language Pathology (BASLP) colleges.
