HYDERABAD: As many as 39 assistant professors would be promoted as professors in government teaching hospitals in the state. According to official sources the orders would be released in few days.
According to information the Director of Medical Education has sent the list to the state government for approval.
Among the 39 assistant professors 23 are pediatricians and 16 anesthetists.
They would be posted in teaching hospitals across the state once they get the approval from the government.
The move comes in the wake of Medical Council of India giving nod to additional number of seats in medical colleges across the state provided there are required number of faculty and necessary infrastructure.
Usually those who complete four years of service as assistant professors in teaching hospitals would be promoted as professors.
The teaching in the medical colleges in the state have been facing difficulties due to lack of faculty.
The state government has recently promoted 44 assistant professors in general surgery and orthopaedic departments and posted them in 10 teaching hospitals in the state.
