BANGALORE: The Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS) is introducing a subject on Comprehensive Emergency Care and Life Support (ECLS) in the undergraduate medicine curriculum from the current academic year.

RGUHS Vice-Chancellor Dr K S Sriprakash told reporters here on Friday that students need to undergo training in this during their internship.

To teach them, RGUHS will organise a training programme for selected faculties of medical colleges across the state in association with the University of Utah, USA. The training will be held from June 23 to 27.

“In a first, we are training over 15 faculties from different college hospitals,” Sriprakash said. The university aims to train 24,000 faculties in emergency care and life support by 2017.

This training will be conducted thrice a year and those interested can contact the university. Training will be given in critical care, general medicine, paediatrics, trauma, obstetrics and gynaecology, chest and respiratory and cardiac emergencies.  Governor H R Bhardwaj will inaugurate the training programme on Monday at RGUHS’ campus  at Jayanagar. 

‘MCI sets HIGH STANDARDS for colleges’

Meanwhile, RGUHS appears to be unaware of facilities offered at colleges affiliated to it. Answering questions about the Medical Council of India rejecting renewal of affiliation for some colleges and denying permission to set up new colleges, RGUHS authorities said the MCI’s standards and specifications are high. “Being a university, we just give our consent to establish a new college or to continue the existing. There will be deficiencies after we give our consent which is later questioned by the MCI,” Sriprakash said. However, a university or a college can admit students only if the MCI permits.
