Coimbatore: Health Minister Ma Subramanian on Saturday said getting a posting with the government hospitals in the state to serve the poor had become very easier nowadays. “Three years ago, doctors wishing to join the government hospitals needed to seek recommendations and approach someone for the job. However, in the past three years, the recruitment process in the health department has become transparent.Candidates no longer need to spend money or rely on recommendations to secure a job.”
He said 1,021 doctors were newly recruited and posted in their preferred locations through a counselling process three months ago. “The Medical Services Recruitment Board has issued a new notification to fill another 2,553 vacant doctor posts, which will also be filled transparently. The deadline to apply is July 15,” the minister said while addressing the 37th graduation ceremony of Coimbatore Medical College (CMC) and the third graduation ceremony of ESI Medical College at CMC here on the day.
Subramanian urged the doctors wishing to serve the poor to register with the Tamil Nadu Medical Council (TMC) and apply for the postings. The minister said he would instruct the TMC registrar to expedite the registration process for CMC and ESI medical college graduates.
The minister awarded degrees to 146 students of CMC and 88 students of ESI Medical College on the day. City corporation commissioner M Sivaguru Prabhakaran, CMCH dean Dr A Nirmala and ESI Medical College and Hospital dean Dr M Raveendran were present on the occasion.
