From the President

Last year, in my message in the 47th Annual Report, I criticized the poor implementation of
the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) for undergraduate and postgraduate
medical courses. We also argued that at the post graduate level, marks of a single examination
should not be the single criteria to judge the worth of a student.
The present format of the NEET examination is flawed at several levels. The examination
calls for a different kind of preparation which has led to the mushrooming of coaching
centres. These coaching centres make huge profits and are not accessible to children of
poor parents. The examination format does not give enough weightage to clinical acumen,
making clinical teaching in colleges redundant. We will end up producing a generation of
doctors who might be theoretically great, but will not have the essential practical skills to
deal with patients.
In the last two years after the introduction of NEET, we now have evidence to show that our
initial fears about NEET were not unfounded. A report by Rema Nagarajan (The Times of
India, 11 June 2018) analyzed the NEET scores of over 57000 students who were admitted to
over 400 medical colleges last year. They found that the average NEET score of students in
government colleges was 448 out of 720, while that of students who were admitted in
colleges under private control was just 306. It is a known fact that the annual fees of some
private medical colleges are almost three times that of government colleges, which makes
them away from the reach of the common man.
Another report by Rema Nagarajan (The Times of India, 15 Apr 2018) shows how NEET’s
percentile system has played havoc with merit. With no specified cut-off scores (that were
previously in place), NEET has made it possible for students with barely 5% in physics and
less than 20% in chemistry to qualify for a medical seat. It is dismaying to note that students
with scores of zero and even negative marks in chemistry and physics were admitted into
medical colleges. Several poor students had to opt out, while students who could afford the
exorbitant fees of privately controlled seats managed to get in despite abysmal scores.
The 109th report on the National Medical Commission Bill 2017 from Rajya Sabha’s
Parliamentary Standing Committee on Health and Family Welfare states that “the purpose
of the competitive examination stands defeated when one has to fill the seats in a medical
college with all and sundry, rather than the best candidate under the guise of 50th/40th
percentile.” It goes on to say:
“NEET has allowed the admissions of candidates who were lower in ranks, who
probably would have never been admitted in medical schools in pre-NEET days.
The one who loses out on admission following NEET, is often the weakest student
in terms of money and influence, whose only asset maybe merit that probably
does not count much in our country.”
Clearly the claims that NEET brings uniformity, transparency and fairness to the admission
process have now proven to be a farce. A single test has managed to create a huge divide
based on money. Merit has taken a backseat. These selection processes must be looked into
and amended at the earliest, before we unleash a horde of undeserving health professionals
on society.
Recently the Oxford University Press published a book titled Healers or Predators?: Healthcare
Corruption in India which is edited by Dr Samiran Nundy, Dr Keshav Desiraju and Dr Sanjay
Nagral. The last section of the book titled “Beacons of Hope” carries some success stories
which light up the bleak scenario. MGIMS Sevagram was invited along with two other
institutes (CMC Vellore and St John’s Hospital, Bangalore) to showcase how individual
institutions can and have taken a stand and attempted to foster a high level of teaching and
ethical conduct. In the introduction to the book, the editors write how MGIMS has persisted
both in maintaining its high standards of teaching and in its adherence to Gandhian values.
So what makes MGIMS different from others? Some of our special features are no capitation
fees and no NRI quota. We have explicit guidelines for functioning which ensures that every
employee contributes to institutional development.Our flagship educational innovations-
the orientation camp, the village adoption scheme and the social service camp, continue to
influence the new batch of medical students every year. We have a unique code of conduct
where faculty and students don khadi, participate in shramdhan and in weekly all-religion
prayers. We have made health care affordable with our health assurance schemes and low
cost drug initiative. Our doctors have rendered remarkable service in the community,
empowering people to take care of their own health, making maternal health services and
eye care accessible. We run a peripheral hospital in the remote tribal areas of
Melghat.Despite our rural location, we have always been at the forefront of adopting
technology and have a state-of-the-art hospital information system and campus wide wi-fi
access. We must acknowledge that much of this is possible because we have consistently
received support from governments across the political spectrum. Overall, MGIMS is a unique
example of public-private partnership where the private party has no profit motive.
Our story goes to show that when you are determined to walk down the right path, you will
always find support from the like-minded. Institutions need freedom and flexibility to design
and implement curricular innovations. In our own small way, we continue to seek excellence
within the stringent boundaries of regulation. We believe that every ripple has the potential
to make a wave of difference to the way medical education is imparted. And we shall continue
persevering along this path.

From the Dean

The mission of MGIMS is to provide knowledge as well as rigorous training that will prepare
students to meet professional and scientific challenges dominating the 21st century.
Committed faculty with outstanding teaching quality, research and patient care- all serve to
attract the most deserving students from all over the country to the Mahatma Gandhi Institute
of Medical Sciences (MGIMS).This institute is one of the best places for learning with 934
beds and 13 operation theatres running daily. It caters to 100 undergraduates and over 75
postgraduates and postdoctoral students per year, who are trained by experienced faculty
members and clinical residents.
The science of medicine is advancing by leaps and bounds. Keeping pace with the abundance
of knowledge is a challenge. It is a greater challenge is to make this knowledge available for
the benefit of patients in regions of the country where accessibility to health care is a major
hurdle. Aspiring medical students have the challenge of adapting to these demands of time
and society. It is here that MGIMS stands as a beacon of hope. MGIMS handles this onerous
responsibility of equipping students with necessary knowledge and skills by training them
within its extraordinary environment.We train the next generation of medical professionals,
by giving them ample opportunities to practice in real community settings.
While we have strived for excellence over the last 49 years, I am confident and sure that we
will be able to reach out to all sections of society, especially the marginalized, ensuring that
each citizen has access to good health care. The local communities within which we live and
work matter to us deeply. We recognize the issue of diversity, inclusion, and access as
challenges and empower our students and staff to improve health outcomes at the local
level. Our faculty and students are committed to promoting Gandhian culture and philosophy
that ensures equal opportunities for women at the workplace. MGIMS strives to become an
institute of medical eminence by pursuing excellence as a continuous process.
Our faculty is highly regarded for the quality and excellence of its teaching and learning. Its
student support system is evidenced by high standards and throughput rates. Our faculty’s
research output has grown in response to the needs relevant to the improvement of health
care. The diverse research focus areas are reflected in our research pages, as is our research
support system. The number of PhD graduates, postdoctoral fellowships and research grants
have grown substantially and we are an institute of choice for those committed to being
serious health science researchers. It is indeed a privilege to have such a committed faculty
staff especially when the lure of private practice and national/ international opportunities
are so strong. We are proud to play a leading role in the various health professional activities
exemplified by staff members serving at MUHS, ICMR, Govt.committees, and professional
and statutory bodies.
This year we are proud to have received Grade A in the second cycle of accreditation conducted
by NAAC. Plans are afoot to build algorithms to interpret radiographs using artificial
intelligence. A number of infrastructural improvements including a digital library, a state-
of-the-art auditorium with two lecture theatres and a new gymnasium for boys are being
constructed. Last year we received a grant of Rs 5 crores from MOHFW New Delhi towards
the Swachchta Action Plan and we were also assessed by an external team for the Kayakalp
award for sanitation, cleanliness and hygiene. We are looking forward to start a molecular
laboratory and to start an MD in Accident & Emergency Medicine.
Open communication and good cooperation amongst our faculty is the key for successful
implementation of positive changes. I am convinced that it really is all about teamwork, not
only among the members of faculty, but also among all academic and non-academic staff,
and of course, the students. The team work is particularly crucial because not all the steps
that await us will be easy, and not every body will be able to identify them. I know my job is
to ensure and maintain a dignified, friendly, motivating environment for all staff and students
and to strive for the maximum possible consensus. Faculty is primarily a one big team where
my mission is to connect people, motivate them and foster a good atmosphere to develop
the intellectual and creative potential of the staff and students.
We are approaching the 50th anniversary of the foundation of MGIMS. This obliges us to
follow such an ideal and we should work together to pursue this ideal to the best of our
ability. Only with incredible team work we will be able to accomplish this really challenging
task which will take MGIMS family to a whole new level. Teamwork, team spirit, good non-
violent communication and open exchange of views needs to be adhered and we seek new
ways to involve all in our common efforts to manage and improve MGIMS further so that we
do not miss out on any inspiring and inspirational ideas.It is said that the world is maintained
only by work which is incremental and continuous. I believe that with the approaching 50th
anniversary of the foundation of MGIMS all of us should be inspired not only by this idea but
also by MGIMS’ profound approach to the life and work.The key driver for our exponential
growth and success at MGIMS has been our President, Kasturba Health Society, Hon’ble
Shri Dhirubhai S Mehta.

M G I M S : An introduction

The Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences, Sevagram is India’s first rural medical college. Nestled in
the karmabhoomi of Mahatma Gandhi, in Sevagram, this Institute was founded by Dr Sushila Nayar in 1969.
Kasturba Hospital has the distinction of being the only hospital in the country which was started by the Father
of the Nation himself.

VISION
The vision of the institute is to develop a replicable model of community oriented medical education which is
responsive to the changing needs of our country and is rooted in an ethos of professional excellence.

MISSION STATEMENT
In the spirit of its Founder, the Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences, Sevagram is committed to
pursuit of exemplary standards of professional excellence in medical education, research and clinical care by
evolving a pattern of integrating value-based medical education with accessible and affordable health care,
especially to underprivileged rural communities.

HISTORY
When Mahatma Gandhi left Sabarmati Ashram and set up his ashram at Sevagram in 1936, the epicentre of
India’s independence struggle shifted to this obscure village in Maharashtra. In 1938, attracted by Gandhiji’s
leadership in the Indian freedom struggle, a young graduate from Delhi’s Lady Hardinge Medical College, Dr
Sushila Nayar, arrived in Sevagram. Her selfless service to the community endeared her to the local people.

In 1944, when Gandhiji returned from his last imprisonment at Aga Khan Palace, Sevagram was experiencing a
number of epidemics. In this situation, Bapu had no use of the guest house built for his guests by Shri GD Birla.
He got it converted into a dispensary, and later, into a 15 bedded hospital for women and children. He put Dr
Sushila Nayar in charge of the same. It was christened “Kasturba Hospital” in memory of Kasturba Gandhi, who
had passed away in 1942. Initially this hospital was run by the Gandhi Smarak Nidhi. The hospital was later
expanded and its services were also extended to men.

After independence, on 11 September, 1964, the 'Kasturba Health Society' was set up by the Gandhi Smarak
Nidhi with Dr Sushila Nayar as its President to manage the hospital.

In 1962, Dr Sushila Nayar became the Union Health Minister. She realised that the distribution of doctors in
urban and rural areas was skewed and there were no takers for rural health care. While addressing the Central
Council of Health in July 1965, Prime Minister, Shri Lal Bahadur Shastri, suggested starting medical colleges in
rural areas so that young doctors trained in rural settings would be sensitive to the health of people in the rural
areas. Kasturba Hospital at Sevagram was the natural choice for setting up India’s first experimental rural
medical college.

The enthusiasm and hard work put in by Dr Sushila Nayar and her dedicated colleagues made it possible to start
India’s first rural medical college by admitting the first batch of 60 students in August 1969. It was started as a
Gandhi Centenary Project. The Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Medical College, Sevagram was designed to be an
2017-2018 1
48th Annual Report
experimental model institute where medical education was reoriented to meet the needs of the rural areas.
The expenditure of MGIMS was to be shared by the Govt of India, Govt of Maharashtra and the Kasturba Health
Society in the proportion of 50:25:25.

MGIMS is 49-years-old now. From a 15 bedded hospital, the Institute has gradually grown into a 934-bedded
one. Today Kasturba Hospital has 690 teaching beds, 100 service beds and 32 private rooms. The hospital
provides 62 beds in different intensive care units (neonatal, pediatric, medical, coronary and burn) to care for
critically ill patients. The institute also runs a 50-bedded Dr Sushila Nayar Hospital, in the tribal areas of Utawali,
in Melghat in Amravati district.

QUALITY MEDICAL EDUCATION


The institute strives to produce doctors of high clinical competence, professional attitudes and ethical behavior.
The Institute believes that Gandhian values and principles are relevant even today and it displays a fierce
commitment to advancement of medical education without losing the humane touch.

We, at MGIMS, are conscious of the fact that medical education needs to maintain the right balance in the
eternal triangle of ‘quality, relevance and equity’. In our perennial quest to attain the perfect blend, we never
forget that these three arms are not in conflict, and equity cannot be kept in abeyance. The students at MGIMS
are drawn from all parts of the country and come from all kinds of social backgrounds. Every effort is made to
acquaint the medical student to the real rural India. Our approach to medical education with the spotlight on
rural community oriented education makes our doctors sensitive to the felt needs of the people they would be
serving in their future. Our students are expected to adhere to professional norms which include altruism,
compassion, empathy, accountability, honesty and integrity.

The students and staff of the Institute adhere to a unique code of conduct, where they are expected to wear
hand-woven khadi, participate in shramdan and attend an all-religion prayer every Friday evening. Non-
vegetarian food, alcohol and tobacco are taboo.

The Institute offers MCI recognized degrees and diplomas in 20 postgraduate disciplines and PhDs in nine
departments. It boasts of a well equipped library which is a recognized resource library for HELLIS network in
Western India. Two of its present faculty members, Dr BC Harinath (1992), and Dr (Mrs) P Narang (2002) are
recipients of the National BC Roy Award.

Since 1991, the Institute had asked all its graduates to serve for two years in rural areas. 80 non-governmental
organizations have joined hands with the institute to fulfill this dream. This rural service was mandatory
criterion for applying for post-graduation in this Institute. With the introduction of NEET this criterion had to be
abandoned. The Report of the Task Force on Medical Education of the National Rural Health Mission spells out
the need to draw upon MGIMS Sevagram’s initiatives and experience in curriculum innovation and rural
placement of its graduates. It suggests launching a participatory exercise with MGIMS and other like-minded
institutions, so that national guidelines can be formulated. Several such visionary and innovative education
strategies which started from the Institute have now been adopted by the government.

RURAL HEALTH CARE


The Institute primarily caters to the rural populace. Almost three-fourths of the patients who visit our hospital
come from rural backgrounds. The patient load comes to us not only from Vidarbha in Maharashtra, but also
from adjoining parts of Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Chhatisgarh. Kasturba Hospital is a rural institute
but it does not lack in any of the modern health care amenities and is able to provide health services at
affordable costs. Kasturba Hospital offers the benefits of modern technology with compassionate health care.

2 2017-2018
48th Annual Report
In 2017-18, 995323 patients attended the hospital as outpatients and 50825 patients were admitted for various
ailments. The Hospital has state-of-the-art intensive care units in Medicine, Surgery, Obstetrics and Gynecology
and Pediatrics which provide excellent critical care. A well equipped hemodialysis unit is available for patients
of renal failure. The Sri Satya Sai Accident and Emergency Unit provides succour to patients of trauma. The
Institute has a Blood Component Unit which provides components not only to patients in Kasturba hospital, but
also to adjoining private hospitals. Facilities for MRI, CT Scan and Mammography are available. The Institute
also has a Linear accelerator which is used for treatment of cancer patients. The Pathology, Microbiology and
Biochemistry laboratories have in-house facilities to conduct a battery of diagnostic tests. All departments of
the hospital are connected by an advanced Hospital Information System and have wi-fi access. The Institute has
also added digital subtraction angiography, brachytherapy and a cath lab to its armamentarium.

COMMUNITY SERVICE
The Institute’s commitment to the community is well known. Community-based programmes have been
consistently implemented to enhance health care services. The Department of Community Medicine has adopted
Four primary health centres and developed a model of decentralized healthcare delivery at village level through
Community-based Organizations and the Panchayati Raj Institutions. It has formed 285 Self-help groups, 10
Kisan Vikas Manch and 89 Kishori Panchayats in the adopted villages. Through innovative strategies, family life
education is provided to adolescent girls in all the programme villages.

The health insurance scheme of the institute has won several accolades as it seeks to create health consciousness
in the community. A villager can insure himself and his family by paying Rs 400 a year and in return he gets 50%
subsidy in OPD and indoor bills. In 2017-18, 22438 families (99576 members) around Sevagram volunteered to
obtain health insurance from this hospital. Similarly 40 villages were totally insured and 133617 rural people
were insured under this scheme. No other medical institution has achieved this kind of coverage so consistently
over the years and at so affordable a rate.

The National Rural Health Mission has lauded the ‘positive contribution of MGIMS in maternal health activities
conducted in partnership with the Govt of India’. In 2006, the Institute was awarded the Mahaveer Award for
Excellence in the Sphere of Education and Medicine by the Hon’ble President of India.

RESEARCH
The focus of the Institute has been on community based medical research. Quality research has been the
hallmark of this rural institute and the large number of funded projects awarded to the various departments is
ample testimony to the potential of the researchers. We have consistently received funding from the Indian
Council of Medical Research, Department of Science and Technology, Department of Biotechnology, WHO,
UNICEF, National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Heart Lung Blood Institute (NHLBI) and other such
organizations. Being located in Sevagram has never been a hurdle in acquiring either funds or facilities as the
enthusiasm and the dedication of the faculty surpasses all other deterrents. Each year, the large numbers of
national and international peer reviewed publications from this Institute provide evidence of excellence in
research.

Over the last four and a half decades, the MGIMS faculty has been striving hard to imbibe the philosophy which
makes it pursue excellence in academics, healthcare and research, more than mundane needs and money; and
to maintain excellence in quality. Today, MGIMS has impressive academic standards and excellent research
facilities. In the 49 years of its existence, 2600 doctors have graduated from the hallowed premises of MGIMS.
Our alumni, spread far and wide across the globe, continue to bring laurels to their Alma Mater.

Kasturba Hospital now offers cardiac services under MJPJAY scheme

Kasturba Hospital, Sevagram recently got empaneled under Mahatma JyotibaPhule Jan Arogya Yojana (MJPJAY)
for carrying out cardiac procedures like angioplasty and angiography in its vascular centre. Kasturba Hospital
shall now be able to register patients under the universal health scheme run by the Government of Maharashtra
for the underprivileged people of the state.

Kasturba Hospital’s angiography suite is equipped with sophisticated technology that produces high-resolution
images with the lowest dose of radiation possible. It also has a ten-bedded intensive coronary care unit (ICCU)
that offers affordable, appropriate and accessible cardiac healthcare to people with limited resources. Since
its opening in November of 2014, the hospital has successfully performed over 1500 procedures comprising of
1400 angiographies and 152 angioplasties.

WHO conducts training for Polio Vaccine study at MGIMS

A team from World Health Organization (WHO) India country office completed a 3-day training for a path-
breaking polio vaccine study involving ICMR and Government of India at the Department of Pediatrics, MGIMS
from 13-15 Jul 2017. The study will evaluate whether a fractional dose of Injectable Polio Vaccine (fIPV) given
via the novel intradermal route is safe and whether it really helps is building immunity against Polio. The
Pediatrics department at MGIMS is one of the only 5 sites across India selected for this historic trial that is
keenly awaited by the whole world.

Dr Mohammed Ahmed, the national research officer of WHO India office and head of the training faculty team,
explained that with the eradication of polio, the world is shifting from Oral Polio Vaccine (OPV) to Injectable
Polio Vaccine (IPV). On 25 Apr 2016, the whole of India simultaneously shifted from trivalent OPV (P1+P2+P3)
to bivalent (P1+P3) dropping the notorious P2 strain that was solely responsible for vaccine derived mutated
polio virus. Since the new babies born anywhere in India after this switch date wouldn’t have had immunity to
P2, it was very essential to start IPV in the national immunization schedule. Due to the worldwide shortage of
IPV, India initially decided to give only 1 dose of IPV intramuscularly but later shifted to 2 fractional doses of
IPV given intradermally to further cut down the countrywide IPV requirements. This was necessary to tackle
the crisis of IPV shortage but didn’t have robust Indian data to support the usage. Thus, the Indian Government
urgently approached WHO & ICMR to conduct this study on safety and immunogenicity of Intradermal route of
IPV. In addition, an alternate schedule will also be evaluated based on the assumptions that all the vaccines for

Shape of Things to Come

New MGIMS library being constructed

Exciting plans to design a futuristic library are afoot. Construction for the new library, 1500 square meters, has
started. The library, located on the first floor of the hospital, will be centrally air-conditioned and will provide
enough space to about 50 faculty members, 75 residents and 225 students. The nearly 300-foot-long hall shall
house 30000 journal volumes and books; it shall have 50 computers, areas for informal group discussions and
team study, an audiovisual hall, staff rooms, reprography area, a cafeteria, and self-service kiosks. The self-
service kiosks shall eliminate queues, allow libraries to open 24/7 and free up library staff time to help students.
To meet the demands of the end users effectively, the library shall identify and adopt good practices and
benchmarks and shall provide wireless connectivity.

The RG Manudhane Foundation for Excellence -a Mumbai based charitable foundation has agreed to donate
substantial funds to equip the library. The library is expected to be functional by July 2018.

in view of their demands, a new 800 seat auditorium is being constructed at MGIMS. The sprawling state-of-
the-art auditorium is being builtover 1495 sqmetres. The auditorium complex will have green rooms, facilities

DEPARTMENTAL PROFILES
Anatomy
SERVICE
The Department of Anatomy is one of the Basic Science departments where teaching is the main activity.
Anatomy and Genetics are taught to students of I MBBS, I and II BSc Nursing and MD (Anatomy) courses of MUHS
Nashik. The Department has a well-established cytogenetics laboratory with an expert geneticist and trained
technical staff for routine cytogenetic investigations (like karyotyping) and genetic counselling. Recently, a
molecular genetics laboratory has been established for research purposes. The staff routinely
performs embalming of the dead bodies for transportation purpose. Embalming is  also done for preservation
of donated bodies for the purpose of dissection and teaching.

EDUCATION
The Department has utilised the following teaching-learning methods to impart the knowledge of Anatomy
and to make learning more effective, interactive and practical:
• Small group teaching: to introduce interactive learning in osteology, gross anatomy, embryology and
histology. Theory to practical/ demonstration ratio is 1:3
• Reciprocal peer teaching: Students volunteer as group leaders and a topic which has previously been discussed
with corresponding teachers is briefed before table-mates in the dissection hall. Teachers supervise the
activity on each table and provide guidelines wherever needed.
• Fortnightly review of topics: Topics taught during the previous fortnight are discussed with students. This
helps the faculty in identifying and helping slow learners. Special sessions are then held for slow learners.
• Live histology demonstration with trinocular microscope, digital camera and television monitor: to provide
better understanding of the microscopic details of tissues at different magnifications. In addition, histological
transparencies, 3D models and charts are also used.
• Computer aided learning: For gross anatomy and embryology, educational CDs are available.
• Students from other colleges have been given training in the Cytogenetics lab.

RESEARCH
The molecular genetics and research labs provide the basic infrastructure for carrying out research in the field
of genetics, histochemistry, histomorphometry, anthropometry and dermatoglyphics. The department is
approved for PhD and has two approved PhD guides in Anatomy and Genetics in addition to 5 PG guides.
Incorporation of some newer equipment such as CO 2 incubator,  automatic  tissue  processor,  an  imported
microtome with disposable blade, CCTV, microscope with digital camera for photomicrography, Magnavision
and cryostat microtome has boosted the research potential of the department.

Anesthesia

health care to the rural populace. Through innovative strategies, family life education is provided to adolescent
girls both in schools and out of schools in all the programme villages.
The department runs General OPD within the Kasturba Hospital which acts as a replica of a primary health
centre under a tertiary health care setting. It is the first contact point for all patients visiting the OPD of
Kasturba Hospital. The General OPD also has Maternal and Child Care cell, psychosocial cell, leprosy treatment
cell, DOTS centre and microscopy centre.

EDUCATION
The Department strives to provide the best learning opportunities to medical students through its innovative
community-based medical education. For each batch of medical students, the Institute adopts a village. In this
village, each student adopts 3-4 families covering the entire village. Initially, a 15-day residential camp is
organized in the village when students build rapport with their family members and facilitate the health
examination and treatment of the villagers. The residential camp is followed by a monthly visit to adopted
families for the next three years. Through these visits the students take care of the health care needs of their
2017-2018 31

Forensic Medicine & Toxicology


SERVICE
Besides carrying out routine post mortems, the department runs a clinical toxicology laboratory attachment
that caters to several types of patients and helps clinicians in prompt diagnosis and treatment. The department
looks after a number of medico-legal aspects. It routinely attends to summons delivered by courts on behalf of
the government and provides expert opinions on several cases. The faculty of this department often visit
crime scenes on requests of district authorities (Collector, Superintendent of Police) to assist in investigation
of crimes. It guides police personnel, medical staff of other institutes and doctors of other departments of
MGIMS in dealing with several types of medico-legal cases. It helps investigate cases of custodial death, sexual
assault, medical negligence and helps estimate age and establish alcohol intoxication. The department helps
in conduct of clinical post-mortems to detect cause of any death or its pathology.

MGIMS has developed a unique Clinical Forensic Medicine Unit (CFMU), which works round the clock and
hand-in-hand with the emergency centre. All medico-legal cases (MLC) are handled under direct supervision
of experts from the forensic department; the doctors from clinical departments are thus no longer required to
spend time in courts for cross examinations. The judiciary had passed strictures about the illegible handwriting
of medicos in the medico-legal reports (MLR) which made it impossible to decipher them. To overcome this
constraint, MGIMS has also developed forensic medical software that generates printed and organized reports
and helps the cause of justice as well as education.

EDUCATION
The department is engaged in undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and training. It conducts regular
undergraduate seminars. Research is in the form of postgraduate theses works and related researches. The
Department of Forensic Medicine & Toxicology also shoulders the responsibility of taking lectures for nursing
students on medico-legal aspects. The postgraduate seats of Forensic Medicine are recognized by the Medical
Council of India. The department is also taking efforts to revamp the curriculum of the subject of Forensic
Medicine at undergraduate level.

RESEARCH
The Department of Forensic Medicine has done pioneering work on the “Quality of forensic medical examination
of sexually assaulted victims in India”. This 258-page report prepared was forwarded to the Union Ministries of

34 2017-2018
48th Annual Report
Health and Law. A public interest litigation was filed on the basis of this report and the Mumbai High Court-
Nagpur bench took immediate cognizance of the seriousness of this issue subsequently issuing a directive
consisting of guidelines and a proforma for medical officers to follow to ensure proper forensic examination of
victims of sexual assault. Police officers probing such cases have also been supplied with revised guidelines by
the Govt. of Maharashtra after another such report was submitted by our department, a report highlighting the
absurdity of certain questions asked to the victims amounting to human rights violation.

Another report “Emergency Medical service in India – a cause of concern” showed that 1.5 lakh people killed in
road traffic accidents in India die due to lack of emergency medicine services. The National Human Rights
Commission has taken serious cognizance of this report and directed the Union Ministry of Health and Family
Welfare to upgrade emergency medical services in the country.

48th Annual Report
Undergraduate Research

At MGIMS, Sevagram, over the last two decades, efforts have been made to build research aptitude of
undergraduate students through provision of a capacity-building workshop followed by participation in
community-based group projects under Problem Solving for Better Health initiative (PSBH), and later through
a structured research mentorship programme for interested students. These efforts at the institute level
succeeded in building a norm and more and more students came forward to apply for research studentships
under Indian Council of Medical Research short-term studentship (ICMR STS) and/ or Maharashtra University of
Health Sciences (MUHS STRG).

Dr Sushila Nayar Scheme for Promotion of Undergraduate Research


In order to nurture the research culture at MGIMS further, in 2014, an annual award was instituted for
undergraduate research named after its founder Director, Dr Sushila Nayar. The award session provides a
platform for young researchers to hone their skills in presenting scientific research and prepares them for
dissemination of research findings in scientific fora.

Beginning 2017-18, the undergraduate award was made part of a comprehensive approach to build a
conducive environment for undergraduate research, known as ‘Scheme for promotion of undergraduate
research’, and includes research grants, travel grants, incentives for publication of papers and periodic need-
based workshops in order to build the research aptitude of undergraduate students.

48th Annual Report
Utawali Project, Melghat
Coordinator: Dr S Chhabra
Melghat is a tribal area in Dharni and Chikhaldara of Amravati district.Located 250 Kms north-west from Sevagram,
this area attracted wide media coverage because of malnutrition-associated deaths in the last decade. Three-
fourths of the population is tribal- inhabited by Korku Adivasis. Most people, poor,illiterate and struggling to
make both ends meet, live in dark ages and have little or no access to health care facilities, education and
communication channels. To access specialized neonatal care most people have to travel 160 Kms on a difficult
and hilly terrain. Men, women and children trapped by the grimmest poverty and are further hit by inequality
of health services. Children, in particular are the worst sufferers. Most of the sickness and deaths are due to
malnutrition, pneumonia, malaria and diarrhoea.

The institute planned a long term project in this area and posted an Associate Professor in Medicine, and an
Ophthalmologist, who have voluntarily opted to reach the unreached. A base hospital at Dharni -Trimurti
Hospital and 36 villages of Melghat have been chosen for research work. These villages are difficult to access,
lack proper transport facilities and are located in the midst of dense forest and hills about 50 Kms from Dharni.
Health education on malnutrition, breast feeding, diarrhoea and sexually transmitted diseases has been started
since the last 8 years. This area is known for the highest under-five child mortality (80 per 1000 live births) and
the highest mortality in the age group (16-50 years) in Maharashtra.

Kasturba Health Society has been providing health facilities in this region through the Mahatma Gandhi Adivasi
Hospital and Dr Sushila Nayar Netralaya since the last 16 years.KHS had been running an OPD and 6-bed
hospital as part of its Tribal Health Research Project in Melghat since the last 16 years. However in view of high
maternal and infant mortality rates, it was decided to take this initiative forward and expand this endeavour
with the help of the faculty and residents of MGIMS.

The Kasturba Health Society (KHS) started its OPD in the Dr Sushila Nayar Hospital (earlier called Mahatma
Gandhi Adivasi Mother and Child Hospital) on 1 Jan 2012. A 30 bed hospital for women and children in the tribal
area of Utawali, Dharni was also initiated with funding support from the Shri Brihad Bharatiya Samaj, a Mumbai-
based non governmental organization. The Government of Maharashtra has recognized this as a referral unit.

A multispeciality hospital has been commissioned on the site on 4 Feb 2016, and 7.5 acres of land has been
acquired for the purpose. A team of obstetrician-gynecologists, pediatricians, anesthetists, medical officers,
interns, administrative officer and nurses are working at Utawali hospital round the clock and managing
emergencies, outpatients and inpatients. The team soon realized that more than ill-health, they had to battle
the social circumstances. The tribal folk had their unique beliefs, superstitions and cultural practices. Coupled
with these prejudices, poverty and illiteracy, it has been an uphill task to counsel patients and ensure compliance.
It is a challenge, but the team has been running an operation theatre too in these resource-limited settings.
The doctors working here have several heartening stories to share of how they managed critical patients using
their ingenuity and expertise. The hospital is now equipped with essential infrastructure including blood
storage facilities (whole blood and components), instruments for anesthesia, newborn resuscitation, multipara
monitors, suction machines operation tables etc. have been procured. Earlier there were no facilities for
conducting Caesarean sections in the entire area. The very first Caesarean section in Melghat was conducted in
Utawali hospital on 20 Jan 2012. The first hysterectomy was done to remove a large uncommon ovarian tumor
180 2017-2018
48th Annual Report
on 15 Feb 2012. Caesarean sections, major and minor gynecological surgeries are now regularly being conducted
in the hospital. An USG machine has been installed with the approval of competent authorities. Permission to
perform female sterilization and induced abortion has been obtained.
The area is prone to load shedding, and hence a new 7.5 KV generator as been installed in the hospital. A
pipeline has been laid from Utawali village to the hospital to counter the water scarcity. Arrangements have
been made to enable proper waste disposal and sanitation. A total of 100 villages receive community based
maternal, neonatal care in Dharni block of Melghat.
In 2017-18, a total of 9921 patients were seen in the OPD. 1052 patients were admitted in the wards of the
hospital. The numbers of patients admitted in each speciality are as follows: Medicine (73), Ob/Gyn (473),
Pediatrics (368), Surgery (49) and Ophthalmology (89). 280 babies were delivered, 109 by Caesarian section. A
total of 390 surgeries were conducted (Gynecology-19, Obstetrics-152, Ophthalmology-170, Surgery-49) of
which, 304 were major surgeries. Medical officers examined 928 patients in community clinics, while 2954
patients were seen at the prenatal clinics.
A diagnostic and therapeutic multispeciality health camp was organized at Dr Sushila Nayar Hospital on 9-10
Feb 2018 with funding from Kasturba Health Society, where 3873 patients availed the services of clinical
specialists from MGIMS. 35 patients were operated, 235 hematological investigations were performed, 47 X
rays were taken, 70 ECGs were performed free of cost to patients. 482 patients received spectacles while
hearing aids were distributed to 75 patients with funding from Jan Kalyan Trust. A blood donation camp was
also organized on 9 Feb 2018. Follow up surgical camps were held on 9-10 Feb, 23-24 Feb and 27-28 Feb where
49 patients were operated.
Regular ophthalmology services and free cataract surgeries have been started from 9 Mar 2018 onwards, when
two free cataract surgery camps were organized on 9 March 2018 and 20 Mar 2018 respectively. Of the total 89
patients registered, 47 were operated at Dr. Sushila Nayar Hospital, Utavali and 42 patients with immature
cataract and other associated complications were sent to Kasturba Hospital Sevagram, where they have been
operated and brought back home with good results.
A number of research projects are being conducted in Melghat. Some of these are:
 Magnitude of day to day life health problems in elderly women of Melghat: Funded by Global Health
through Education and Service (GHETS), USA
 Services for health problems in elderly women of Melghat: Funded by Jan Kalyan Trust, Mumbai
 Community based study of magnitude of abortions, spontaneous and induced, immediate and late

leader. Presentations were made by Dept of Pediatrics, Ophthalmology, Anesthesia and Medicine. A total of
30 people attended the CNE.
