Placements in Professional Colleges

Hordes of students across the country plan on professional courses like MBAs, specialized diplomas and all types of engineering degrees. Till not so long back the competition for many of these courses was stiff and based on merit. The last few years however have seen a huge burgeoning of private educational institutions offering all kinds of professional course for a hefty fee. The market is suddenly flooded with seats and students no longer have to fall over each other for the IIMs and large regional colleges. If their parents can afford it or they are willing to take a student loan, most students can easily afford the fees to a private B School.

Unfortunately from what we see, few really should be at these courses and are there only to pad up their CVs and get the educational institution to give them a job. This is the prime reason why students choose a professional institution solely on the bases of whether they will get placement.

Placement is of course important. We all burn the midnight lamp and spend years of sacrifice so that we prosper professionally and economically, but to do a course solely for economic benefit, not apply oneself during the course and ask the educational institution to guarantee a job is down right arrogance on the part of most students.  If one applies oneself on the course in preparation of the competition ahead, there is no reason why most students can’t secure a job on their own merit.

The task of any educational institution is to teach and prepare their students for the task ahead, beyond that it is up to a student, from where then has this situation arisen, where in students want a job assurance for joining the course. Most educational institutions too feel hard pressed to advertise placements as it is this factor that fills their batch.

Part of the answer lies in that there are more professional seats available than needed. Sometimes the educational institution may not be prepared to fulfill its part of the ‘academic’ bargain as it is ill equipped on various aspects, including laboratories and poor teaching staff.

Poor quality infrastructure in an educational institution, admitting poor quality students and then attempting to place these poorly trained students can turn in to a vicious cycle for both students and institution.

During this time of recession many of you will be planning on studying further, if you are, stop for a while and question your true motivation for doing a course. Will the course help you get a better position in a company, will you succeed on your own steam. Marketing divisions of most educational institutions are like any other marketing divisions; they promise you the moon until your join the course and later show you the fine print.

If you are planning to do a course while working or by taking a year or two off, ensure you are spending your valuable time with a reputed educational institution. Those students who have it in them even get there through self study and experience, but that’s an article for another day.

Write in and tell us what your opinion is on this topic and we will be glad to publish them. But if you are seriously considering going back to books and looking for the right educational institution you might want to contact us at EduWorld Info.

Medical Transcription as a career option

Medical transcription or MT is the process of transcribing or converting recorded dictations into a written text. The dictation is by a physician or healthcare professional located in a foreign country and is regarding a patient’s medical records.

With spiraling cost of health care in countries like the US and other parts of Europe, there is an increasing trend to outsource medical transcription to cheaper destinations like India. This has resulted in a huge job opportunity and involves not only working from an office but from home as well.

In Western countries the entire healthcare industry is based on insurance and detailed medical records are needed for processing insurance claims. Hospitals and labs in Europe, US and West Asia find it cheaper to outsource laboratory tests and other medical processes to India. Outsourcing, is believed to result in a cost saving of anywhere from 30% to 70%.

According to NASSCOM, the MT industry will be worth Rs 40 billion by 2010 and could employ millions of young people. It estimates the size of the US MT industry, will be $ 16.8 billion by 2010. The work off shored is expected to be in the region of $ 860 million by 2010, of which India is expected to capture a whopping $ 647 million.

The industry, which currently depends mostly on the health care institutions of western countries for business, could expect to secure greater business from hospitals in India, in the coming years. This is because the health insurance business that drives the growth of the MT industry is set to gain greater acceptance in India.

Medical transcription follows prescribed and established document formats and is highly dependent upon trained professional Medical Transcriptionists. India has the potential to become one of the largest Medical Transcription (MT) centers in the world due to the large number of people with health care knowledge in the country and industry maturity.

Skills of a Medical Transcriptionist

India provides an ideal location for conducting medical transcription with the large population of educated English speaking people and the comparative low cost which encourages companies abroad to outsource their work to the Indian Medical Transcription field.

An ideal qualification for a medical transcriptionist is a graduation, with English comprehension skill. If the person has a course in medical transcription it is an added advantage.

Further, the candidate should be a good listener, able to adjust quickly to the different accents and diction, with specialized knowledge of medical terminologies, medical procedures and ability to spell medical words correctly. The person should also be able to detect medical inconsistencies in dictation and fix poor grammar and syntax.

A medical transcriptionist must also have a reasonable amount of patience, as the work may get monotonous and repetitive. Medical transcriptionists benefit greatly from on-the-job experience, and especially by handing records from a wide variety of medical specialties. A medical transcriptionist should have basic knowledge of computers and good typing speed would be added advantage.

Medical Transcription – A Great Career Option

The benefits of Medical Transcription as a career include the ability and freedom to work from home, especially for ladies who may not be able to come to office and work, especially pregnant women who may not be able to come to office and work during their maternity leave, etc. There is a good number of people currently enjoying the benefit of working from home and still earning around 25-30k average and as high as 50k to 60 k as well. The recent liberalization of Internet in terms of cost and bandwidth and other related technologies like 3G has accelerated the potential from working from home in an hassle-free environment. In light of the recent liberalization of Internet, it gives the ability to work even from remote parts of the country. A PC with decent configuration, a stereophonic headset, foot pedal (a device that controls the voice player), and other softwares necessary for reference of medical terms/drugs are more than that would suffice to independently work as a Medical Transcriptionist.

Services being Outsourced to India

The country is already witnessing a surge in outsourcing of processes like

  • Medical transcription
  • Claims processing
  • Medical billing and coding
  • Data management for clinical trials
  • Radiology services

Salaries Medical Transcriptionists can Expect

A trained medical transcriptionist could earn up to Rs 15,000-Rs 20,000 a month and with experience it could only go higher.

Should studying in the mother tongue be made mandatory for students

Your Education is Our World

The medium of instruction in schools is a highly contentious issue and draws strong reaction in just about every state of India. Politicians, literary personalities and other people in the State often demand that education of a child be in the child’s mother tongue. Parents and even older children demand that the medium of instruction be English.

The battle on which language a child should be taught, especially in the primary school, in their formative years, is not restricted to India alone. A quick research will tell you it is a topic of heated debate among parents, politicians, policy makers, thinkers in many other countries of the world too.

In most cases the discussion is, the mother tongue verses English. Undoubtedly, English is the 2rd most spoken language in the world and many parents feel that if their children study in the vernacular, they are at a disadvantage at various competitive examinations, when traveling abroad for further studies and when they desire to participate at a wider global level.

Regional thinkers and promoters of vernacular languages feel that a child is deprived of their collective consciousness and cultural roots if they are taught in an alien language, like English. Who is right? Should one language be chosen over the other, should students be given a choice, have students who have been taught in English instead of their mother tongue gone further in life as opposed to their counterparts who studied in the vernacular? These are just some of the questions that need to be mulled over.

Either way, if we look at these questions carefully you will notice that they actually take us away from major issues that should actually be the focus of discussion.

With or without the ‘medium of instruction’ wrangle, it is a horrifying fact that the literacy rate in India is an abysmal 66%. One of the points in the common minimum program (CMP)of the UPA government during its 1st tenure was to  invest at least 6% of the country’s GDP in Education, (many poorer counties spend a much larger part of their GDP on education than India). India spends more on its defense forces than on the future of this country, which is education. Not only did the government fail to increase its budget on education in keeping with the CMP in the 1st tenure of the government, there seems to be no move to ensure it materializes in the second tenure of the government either.

Today of course the education minister of India is able to create a furor, which lasts for months, about making exams for X standard students optional, but what about the millions of children still in the villages of India, who don’t have teachers, who don’t have schools, whose potential continues to be wasted.

How, for example, does it matter if the medium of instruction is ones mother tongue but the content in the textbooks is still about the Second World War and Greek history, and is in no way linked to ones state and regional culture? What is the use of the education if it does not impart life skills? Does not teach about civic participation, health and hygiene? These are very real issues that are often ignored.

State and regional politicians and thinkers often experience fear that young people will be uprooted from their local culture and customs if they are taught in an alien language, but how empowering is this local language and culture?, is it helping create  a more equitable society or does it perpetuate a status quo that has been around for millennia? These and some other questions need to be debated.

Things on the education front can change only when the government invests more into education. Giving every child in this country an equal opportunity to access education. Giving each child and parent the freedom of choice about what medium to study in. While politician’s say students should study in their mother tongue, what is the state of government run schools? Can they be turned around to deliver quality education?, then of course parents would be more than happy to send their children to government schools and root themselves in their culture.

What does a rule like ‘mandatory studying in the mother tongue’ mean to a cosmopolitan city like Bangalore, or any other state in India for that matter. Students come here from all over the country. The IT city has a huge BPO and KPO industry that services the US and Europe, how will young people join this highly lucrative industry if they not adequately proficient in English?

What are your thoughts on this?………. email us and let us know……….. we will be glad to start a discussion on this issue on our blog.
