10th Foundation Day

The D. Y. Patil University has celebrated its 10th Foundation Day on 1st September 2015. The flag hoisting was conducted in the University campus at the auspicious hands of Dr. Arun Nigavekar, Raja Ramanna Fellow, Former Chairman, UGC, Former Vice-Chancellor, Pune University, Founder Director NAAC and            Dr. Vedprakash Mishra, Chancellor, KIMS Deemed University, Karad and in gracious presence of Chancellor Dr. Vijay Bhatkar, President Dr. Sanjay D. Patil, Vice-Chancellor Prof. Dr. S. H. Pawar. Invitees and all teachers, non-teaching staff and students of all branches of D. Y. Patil University and D. Y. Patil Educational Group attended the function. After flag hoisting all the guests and invitees and students assembled in auditorium for further function.

Dr. Vedprakash Mishra expressed his views on “Trained Health Manpower, Key to Global Supremacy”. In his speech he stated that after 2020 nearly 30% of the global requirement of the health manpower will be fulfilled by the Indian Medical graduates. It is therefore, not only that the responsibility of catering to the needs of our own country is vested on us but we are also supposed to contribute to the noble global cause when it comes to health and manpower. Recently England has invited a large number of Indian doctors to serve their Country.

Medical schools at present are expected to accept challenges at the national level and global contexts. We are not just graduate and post graduate production schools. We have to ensure that we are competent to contribute excellent service and expertise to the entire globe.

Every medical college in this country has to be quality based. Therefore, the quality concerns need to be addressed promptly more than quantity expansion. Here lies the trinity: 1) Objectives of medical education 2) The curriculum design 3) The capacity building.

There is the need of continual medical up-gradation. So for global competence to evolve there is pertinent need of autonomous, credible, transparent and accountable accreditating agency exclusively for health professional education. There should be an outcome based evaluation mechanism. There is the need to frame the policy on time frame and definite period schedule as well. The academic revolution has never taken place. So academic anatomy is necessary and vital, which could be ensured by an amendment to section 33 of the Indian Medical Council Act, 1956, to the effect that regulations on academic issues can be notified without the requirement of prior approval by the Government of India.

There should be a new plan for effective utilization of the manpower generated by medical schools. The Universities such as D.Y. Patil University is expected to be a centre of excellence to play a significant role in the global context. This healthy approach alone will take us to the global supremacy in medical care and practice.

Dr. Arun Nigavekar offered his views on “India Needs to go for disruptive innovation in Higher Education Sector”. He stated that the scenario is becoming complex mainly because of the rise in number of students in higher education and increasing pressure from employing agencies, industries and businesses. Today there are 13 million students in the higher education sphere; this number would rise to 50 million by 2020 due to the impact of Right to Education Act and a major push to primary education. Industries are demanding skills education for workers at various stages, namely lower-level, mid-level, upper-level workers and graduate experts. The new government has the opportunity and absolute power to take a proactive approach. Today state governments only bear the financial load connected with payment of teachers and supporting staff salaries. We are stuck in annual, semester and mini-modular structure for decades. The need is to be flexible. Innovation-and that too disruptive innovation-should be worked out as the backbone for an India education policy. We are in a phase where complexity is leading to indignity for our country’s education sector.
