The Telegraph – Calcutta (Kolkata) | Frontpage | Assam docs make beeline for VRS

At a time when Dispur is making tall claims of having brought about a sea change in the healthcare sector, senior doctors are preparing to retire early from government hospitals, citing poor job satisfaction and frustration in their careers.

A slew of measures adopted by the Assam government to improve the state’s health scenario has not succeeded in preventing what could be the beginning of an exodus from the state’s medical colleges. This has put under serious pressure not just medical facilities but also the strength of senior faculty in these colleges.

Sources said many experienced doctors at the Gauhati Medical College and Hospital (GMCH), the Assam Medical College and Hospital (AMCH), Dibrugarh, and the Silchar Medical College and Hospital (SMCH) had applied to the state government to allow them to avail of the voluntary retirement scheme. The applicants include professors and heads of departments in the three medical colleges.
