Few of the bright students join MBBS courses in India, and among them, a chosen few , which are unarguably the brightest, finally join the post graduation courses. Do the medical colleges that we have , really have the resources and the capabilities to train this talented pool of graduate doctors into the specialists of this century. In most institution, the clinical training is not bad because of large number and great variety of patients available, but same can not be said about the medical research. An excellent article by MS Tullu and S Karande titled “Quality research in Indian medical colleges and teaching institutions: The need of the hour” throws light on this issue. Author succinctly points reasons why we should engage in research, and also elaborate that we have adequate resources at our disposal that it can surely be done here in India only.
