Soymya swaminathan, Director of MICR says
- As many as 332 ( 57.3%) medical research colleges in India did not have a single medical publication between 2005 and 2014, according to a 2016. In comparison, the annual research output of the Massachusetts was 4,600 and the Mayo clinic 3,700. There are only a few medical colleges get involved in research
- Clinical researchers need to see patients. They cannot do research in isolation, when you are not involved with patients and their problems.
I read In this context, I wonder apart from medical education, what is the research position in science and social sciences, how many of those are being internationally acclaimed. This is important, for, the secret of development of a country lies in there only.
