All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) dean is considering quitting the institution //, as he feels of being subjected to humiliation by some colleagues and misguided students.
The dean R.C.Deka, a leading ENT surgeon in the country and an expert in cochlear implant surgery is now contemplating leaving the premier institution on account of being badly treated by his colleagues and students. He explained that he would consider the post of vice-chancellor of K.G. Medical University in Lucknow, which had been offered to him around the same time he had become the dean of AIIMS.
He further stated that on the 15th of June, some doctors and students had surrounded his house and shouted slogans demanding his resignation. The doctor has alleged that a provocative speech by AIIMS director P Venugopal was the cause of the instigation. Dean Deka said, "After being in the profession for nearly 31 years and serving for 25 years at AIIMS, it becomes difficult to face humiliation from colleagues and misguided students. They surrounded my quarters, shouted slogans against me, and even demanded my resignation."
Deka, who is the head of the ENT department for the past 11 years, said he became so disturbed by the events that he had cancelled his trip to Russia this week. The doctor explained that he had been invited as a guest speaker at the annual session of the International Academy of Otorhinolaryngology (ENT) at St. Petersburg.
Reports have showed that there has been an exodus of top doctors, and seemingly AIIMS has not learnt from the past. Reports indicate that since 2003, 24 senior doctors have left, either for monetary reasons or because of infighting in the institution. Three of AIIMS' top doctors, V.S. Mehta (Head of Neurosurgery), Anoop Misra (Professor of Medicine), and S.N. Mehta (Head of Surgery) had left in March to join private hospitals.
