    Advice to Management

    DANGEROUS FOR COUNTRY AND DOCTORS

    I totally endorse Kumarans views. I know very well whats happening there.

    This a dangerous trend for our country to monopolize surgeries/procedures in a field which is truly earned by individuals after decades of hard work. This would mean the rest of the doctors who come to work in corporate in hope of working with latest equipment are not even allowed to touch it and they are
    Are degraded to a resident doctor. No where in the world the post call doctors waits for 9 hours to go home just waiting for the chairman for taking his rounds for 5 minutes(No residents doctors cannot take rounds with him alone, he needs post call consultants)
    The corporate world is deliberately blocking the skill development of the younger doctors who were made by the self hard work of this newly building emerging economic India.
    The result of this would be, after a decade instead of young people getting nurtured like owner of this hospital himself got in western world, come back and do the exact opposite and choose blind eye to the reasons why they left India in first place. In turn the highly skilled superspecialists get frustrated and start working in nursing homes since public hospitals neither have jobs nor facilities for the skills they have acquired. This makes us a laughing stock in front of the world who fully understand the dichotomy of Indian medical system.
    This just cannot happen that the salary of the top guy is 100 times that of the same specialty consultant with same degrees who is actually doing majority of department work. He is kept in background allowed to rot till he decides to leaves this hospital or is shown the door if he shows displeasure. CMD talks about PPP models and he is going to extrapolate the same model he is planning with the government, should think twice before involving him before they burn their hands. Because these partnership would again polarize to a few people and exploit Indian tax payers by again creating an inequality of wealth, power and skills in hands of a chosen few.
    On one hand Prime minister is emphasizing on skill development, models like these are disruptive and demoralizing to the brilliant minds of country who are only now able to stand up to world with some pride after decades since Independence. What this does is, project to world that India have only handful of doctors who are stars,(rest all are non grate) rest of the even better skilled doctors are to be actively discouraged to prominence. In fact the names of the consultants do not feature in the website of the hospitals in-spite working for many years. Beside the fact doctors are working easily 16 hours every day. Amazing feat
    A lot of doctors are allotted clinics from 7–9 pm when hardly anyone comes to opd. Make them work (means waiting for rounds of the chairman on post call day till 6pm that is 35 hours continuous waiting for the big man to do his rounds. This is nothing but a tactic of humiliation and burn out to encourage them to leave before they become a threat. There is active strategyto deliberately degrade them
    Others may be having better ideas than the people he trusts in chairman lunch meets and may be willing to go the extra mile for him if he shows faith in them to grow in business.
    People laugh at us abroad as most Indian doctors are perceived as poor, low paid doctors which is a sign of weakness and weakness is not respected anywhere now a days. Let there be no moralistic stand on this. Only strength is respected. Today's world respects only well groomed doctors wearing expensive suits and flashy cars. No one respect humility and weakness in world. Do you want Indian doctors to create institutions of excellence where doctors from abroad would like to come and work here. As a result we will have low self esteemed doctors who may not be employable any where in world unlike today. Already UK has stopped training Indian doctors. And US plan would shortly be implemented.
    What this system will create is majority of under-confident doctors who will have just enough money to run their household. period. Corp-orates have to change its model if it really wants to be perceived as a hospital for common people and doctors to come there to be treated or for work.
    CMD should introspect how many consultant/Asso consultant level doctors are leaving rather than conducting chairman meet lunches. These young doctors can grow your bushiness leaps and bound if taken into confidence than being feeling left out in the dark ally as an apprentice
    People are asked to resign if they go for fellowship abroad and they are forced to stay back there due to job insecurity situation created by these corporates back home(and the same doctors on forums talk about brain drain) You want doctors to be brilliant but you will actively discourage them at every step to peruse academic activities(which is requirement by MCI)-Salary cuts during conferences,Not allowing most people to attend conferences, asking to resign when going abroad for fellowship for a few months. Besides the fact that it is almost 7 day working for all doctors(the rest of western world follows 5 days working and emphasizes on work life balance for better work productivity. Main work at -Filling papers, insurance forms, waiting for rounds, Least time allotted at patient bed/opd
    Thought for our country of Sushrutas and Aryabhattas.

    Pros

    leading institution in the field with the best of doctors, usually given a fair amount of responsibility early on (though with limited to no authority to execute)

    Cons

    Zero consideration to employee motivation or appreciation. A few overpaid legacy staff and family insiders own and run this place to line their pockets. Talented people are looped in with big promises, dreams of innovation, fancy suits then wrung through the system in stagnant jobs an humilated verbally and professionally every day. Avoid this place like the plague, there is no growth or recognition, no desire to change, and the worlds most ridiculous organization structure designed with only one objective, lining the pockets of the unmotivated, goo for nothing legacy staff.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together, if you are serious about the future, stop alienating good talent just to line the pockets of the legacy staff
