Main Article Content
The 21st century is witnessing remarkable revolutions
and changes in the primitive trends globally in
every field. The medical profession is no exception but
in our part of the world, some conventions still prevail
and are rigid enough to modify. It is being observed that
the majority of medical graduates opt for post-graduate
training in the major fields of medicine, surgery, paediatrics
and gynaecology / obstetrics, whereas training slots
in other specialties, both clinical and basic sciences, are
either under-filled or left fully un-occupied. There is a
dire need to explore the reasons for this biased attitude
of medical graduates towards different specialties.
Over flow of trainees in a few specialties is not a
fruitful trend even for those particular specialties. Excess
of trainees causes over-saturation of the respective
departments with trainees who cannot receive due attention
from supervisors owing to their large numbers.
Since medical resources are limited, trainees cannot get
hands-on experience in all the major and minor procedures
that are expected from them at the completion of
any particular year of training. Specialties that are under-
filled on the other hand cannot accomplish vertical
mobility due to lack of enough human resources and
so with the passage of time they persist as conformist
fields unable to exercise latest trends
