Gujarat University defers PG medical exams
AHMEDABAD: Gujarat University has decided to postpone the upcoming exams for postgraduate medical students.
The decision has been taken keeping in view the recent surge in Covid-19 cases in the state, especially given the role played by these postgraduate students who are part of the frontline medical workers.
The medical colleges affiliated with Gujarat University including B J Medical College and Civil Hospital, GMERS Medical College and Hospital (Sola), NHL Municipal Medical College, and GMERS Medical College, Gandhinagar.
Given the rise in the number of cases at the 100-bed hospital at Civil Hospital, the hospital superintendent had written to the dean of B J Medical College that more hands were needed to handle the situation. The letter also mentioned that as students are finding it hard to cope with their studies while attending Covid-19 duty, the college authorities should consider postponing the exams slated to begin from May 1.
