Delhi Health Minister Satyender Jain had recently said the government is making efforts to appoint younger medical superintendents at its hospitals.

Sources said that it has become difficult for AAP Health Minister Satyender Jain to appoint medical superintendents at government hospitals in the prevailing situation.

He had recently said the government is making efforts to appoint younger medical superintendents at its hospitals.

“Efforts will be made to appoint younger medical superintendents at government hospitals. For instance, post graduates with 10+ years of experience or undergraduates with 15 years of experience,” Jain said, during a convention by Federation of Resident Doctors’ Association at Maulana Azad Medical College.

In October the AAP government had come out with a circular inviting applications for the post of medical superintendent, which according to sources did not get many applicants initially as senior doctors in Delhi are not interested in taking up the post of medical superintendent at government hospitals as they are reluctant to work with the AAP government.

The Delhi government then came out with a second order on December 2, extending the date for submitting application for the post of medical superintendent to December 31. Earlier, the deadline was October 31.

The AAP government has always been vocal about having young doctors on board. Accordingly, the government had also changed the basic criteria for applying for the post of medical superintendent.

Now, application forms have been filled out, interviews conducted, and the government is all set to come out with the list by the end of this week, sources said.
