Admission into Post Graduate Medical Courses Rules, 1997 – Certain amendments


Previously, the PG admission process was as per “Roster System”. Subsequently, Dr.NTRUHS proposed to make admissions “broad specialty-wise”. (The advantage of the system is that the seats in all the important broad specialties will be reserved for respective categories and their selection to the desired specialties is ensured. It was stated that the proposed pattern would facilitate the category candidates to obtain seats in broad specialties to enable them to pursue Super Specialty courses related to the Broad Specialty chosen by them.) Accordingly, in the G.O.3rd read above, orders have been issued to certain amendments to AP Medical Colleges (Admission into Post Graduate Medical Courses) Rules, 1997.

The Registrar, Dr NTR University of Health Sciences, Vijayawada has reported that the admissions into PG Medical Courses were made as per the orders issued in G.O. By implementing the G.O. certain problems arose during the counseling.

A series of meetings were held with Vice Chancellor, Dr.NTRUHS, Director of Medical Education and Principal Secretary to Government (Health, Medical and Family Welfare Department), Principal Secretary to Government (Social Welfare Department) to address the problems encountered while implementing G.O.Ms.No.43, HM&FW Department, Dated: 13/03/2013.

Consequently, in the letter 5th read above, the Registrar, Dr NTR University of Health Sciences, Vijayawada has proposed the amendments to the G.O.3rd read above.

The Government after careful examination of the proposal have decided to amend the Andhra Pradesh Medical Colleges (Admission into Post Graduate Medical Courses) Rules, 1997 with regard to selection of candidates for admission into PG broad speciality.

Accordingly, the following notification will be published in an Extraordinary issue of the Andhra Pradesh Gazette, Dated: 22/05/2014.
