Hyderabad: In a significant move to plug gaps in manpower shortage in teaching hospitals, the Director of Medical Education (DME) has completed the selection of 92 Assistant Professors who will be posted across various teaching hospitals in the State.
The selected 92 doctors for the posts of Assistant Professors are meant for deployment in super-speciality and clinical departments across the teaching hospitals in the State.
The recruited Assistant Professors, who have to undergo certificate verification process on November 19 at DME office, Koti, will go a long way in addressing the shortage of teaching faculty and clinical staff involved in providing healthcare services to patients at teaching hospitals.
In the last few months, during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the State health authorities have aggressively pursued the directions of Chief Minister, K Chandrashekhar Rao and Health Minister, Eatala Rajender, to fill-up vacant posts of doctors in Telangana.
In a landmark development, Telangana State Public Service Commission (TSPSC) in the month of October completed selection of 167 posts of Assistant Professors for various Government Medical Colleges in TS.
As part of these efforts, last month the State Government had accorded permission to the Director of Public Health, Telangana to engage nearly 205 personnel, who will function under District Medical and Health Officer (DM&HO), Hyderabad.
Earlier in August, close to 85 speciality posts were filled-up by DME at Telangana Institute of Medical Sciences (TIMS) and Gandhi Hospital.
