University to hold Anatomy practicals again

Practical to be conducted by experts from outside state

Conceding to the demands of the students of Government Doon Medical College (GDMC), the HNB Medical Education University authority has ordered that Anatomy practicals would be held again. To ensure impartiality in the process, the university has decided that all four examiners would be brought here from outside the State. The students of MBBS First year of the Government Doon Medical College (GDMC) had started an agitation on December 17 after they had found that majority of them had flunked the practical examination in Anatomy. The students had been particularly peeved with the head of  the Anatomy department of the college, Dr S K Agarwal, alleging that he had intentionally failed 40 out of 52 students in the practical examination.  The students had further alleged that the HoD had openly threatened the students that he would make sure that all the students flunked the practical examinations. Parents of the students had also joined the agitation and sat on a dharna in the college for three days. The students had relented after an inquiry was ordered by HNB Medical University. The academic council of the university in its meeting held on Friday decided that the practical examination of the failed students of MBBS First Year (Batch 2017-18) in Anatomy would be held again. The meeting was presided over by the vice- chancellor of the university Dr Hem Chandra. The registrar and controller examination, Vijay Juyal said that the practice would be conducted from January 5 to 10, 2019 by four external examiners. He clarified that the students would not have to pay any additional fee for re-examination. Read more posts…
