Investigating the Trend of Super Specialization in Indian Healthcare:


The surge in Indian medical professionals specializing, driven by expanded postgraduate seats, presents a noteworthy trend. However, 40-50% of DM and MCh seats in private and government colleges remain vacant. In my college, only 40-50% of MD Medicine students express willingness for the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test for Super Speciality (NEET-SS), possibly influenced by the previous rural service requirement. Starting this year, the Karnataka government has lifted this obligation, deeming it a financial burden. Whether this signifies an oversupply of medical professionals remains uncertain. This abstract highlights the evolving dynamics in medical education, touching on seat vacancies, student preferences, policy changes, and the potential implications of an oversaturated market.
