The government has made it mandatory for all medical students to serve in the rural areas for one year after internship in an attempt to ensure a steady flow of physicians to the remote villages where doctors are usually hesitant to go. This means that after the five-and-a-half years of MBBS (4.5 years study + 1 year internship) we will have to go to a Primary Health Centre in some remote corner of the state.

WHile I agree that it is beneficial from the point of a medical student to work in PHC (you will learn the art of practice), I disagree with your logic of 9 Lakhs
That is what we have been forced to believe
I repeat, I am one of the strongest advocates of the Rural Posting as it is immensely beneficial to the students. Even if that is not compulsary, I would advice my juniors to work in villages/small towns for atleast one year to know the challenges you are going to face in future in your profession.
But please don’t get fooled by the 8 lakh theory !!!
Its a very informative piece….
Keep Up the good work..
