New models required to up capacity for medical education

For education seats to be auctioned blatantly and then blaming it on the educational institutes being “not-for-profit” has to be a new low. Capitation fee and underhanded dealing were rife, but sitting in formal auditoriums and auctioning medical education seats a’la IPL that’s a new one. We need to up capacity of educational institutions and make it attractive for talented people to teach in these institutions. Medical institutes require an upfront sizable investment for it to be suitable to deliver the requisite quality of education, in addition ongoing operational costs are also high. Any private sector entity will require a return on investment that will make sense for making that kind of investment. To get that return one will require margins one will push for higher volumes and higher price points, thereby making education un-affordable for large number of people. This model does not give hope for it to work. New models of delivery are required to up capacity, this may include government supported institutes in Private Public Partnership models, or students coming through a scholarship scheme that is transparent and supported by various bodies, or philanthropic and development agencies supporting building of such capacity. I can’t see that day far off where the government will levy a cess for creating higher education institutes in critical disciplines such as healthcare.
