  1. Looking for a healthy debate on this case-
    300-400LBS=~135-180Kgs 13 years old female w/ no other co-morbid conditions(as of now!!). Is she beyond the "dietary modifications/lifestyle change" criteria and close to a bariatric path??
    What could be the possible pros n cons of either??

  8. Is case report in indexed journal counted as a research publication? what exactly is the definition of research publication. Its not defined anywhere. Please clarify if anyone know

    ReplyDelete
  9. Well, As far as I understand there are no clear guidelines for as such research publications. Its better that we think that case reports are not accepted. Its better to publish some studies rather than case reports. These is totally my personal opinion. Most of journals worldwide ( Of Repute ) have stopped accepting case reports.

  14. how will it help to maintain standard by clearing bogus private medical colleges, cutting the number of medical teachers & lowering the standard of promotions from lecturer to Professor. Well it be Dr Ketan Desai or Dr Sarin all are there to help only the management of private medical college. Now I feel at least the MCI under Dr Ketan Desai had guts to say No to the political masters.Same manipulation is continued now ,earlier it was money now its the political pressure.

  15. CAN YOU MAKE IT CLEAR ABOUT THE PROMOTION OF FACULTIES IN MED COLLEGE TEACHING SERVICES.. IS PUBLICATION MANDATORY FOR PROMOTION.

  16. Hi Jessy.
    As i understand, the publications are not mandatory. The old rules stays. What happens with the publications is your promotions are earlier by few years. Also if you have publications you will be selected, in case there are many candidates for same post.

    Thanks of writing,

    Vikram

  19. If the Lecturer or Assistant Professor worked in more than one college for four years and those colleges are Govt./ Semi- Govt./ Private institutes then whether that experience is cumulatively counted for Associate Professor post in the present institute?
    If the Lecturer or Assistant Professor had worked on Adhoc basis i.e. Temporary basis for 29 days order / 3 months / 6 months / 1 year order then whether that experience is counted for promotion for Associate Professor Post in present Institute?
