New Delhi: 3rd January 2012
India has found a way to increase the number of doctors specifically to treat cancer. The Union health ministry will soon allow every professor of three disciplines — radiotherapy, medical oncology and surgical oncology — to teach three students as against the existing norm of two. Besides, associate professors across all specialities will be allowed to take two students under their wing as against one as per the present norm. Assistant professors, who qualify to be associate professors, will also be allowed to take one student under their care.
