NHS Crisis Adding to Woes of Overseas Doctors in Britain
Apart from changes in work rules that have adversely affected Indian doctors' employment prospects, a financial crisis has gripped several hospitals in Britain's National Health Service (NHS), leading to hundreds of job losses. Almost every day, several hospitals announce job cuts to meet budget deficits. In recent weeks, the overall job losses in the NHS are said to be nearly 7,000 in 22 trusts and hospitals in different parts of the country. The financial crunch further lessens the prospects of thousands of Indian doctors currently seeking employment in Britain. New work rules have compounded the situation for them as now they can no longer work as part of "permit free training", and need work permits. Britain's health authorities are faced with higher numbers of local medical graduates and many more from the expanded European Union who have the right to work in Britain. The situation makes it difficult for non-EU nationals - such as Indian doctors - to secure employment in the NHS.

Overview of CBI Raids in AIIMS Conducted PG Exam Leak Case
Sleuths of the Central Bureau of Investigations (CBI) Wednesday raided clinics and residences of several doctors at 35 places across the country for their alleged involvement in the leakage of medical examination question papers. The raids were carried out in Delhi, Uttar Pradesh and Chennai and cases against 22 doctors were registered in Chennai and 6 cases were registered in Delhi. Officials said initial investigation had suggested a possibility of a scam and therefore raids were carried out by the agency. They said some doctors who were questioned during the raids confessed to receiving Rs.1 million for leaking the question paper and helping students answer the questions. They said the doctors had helped the aspirants by sending them text messages on their mobile phones. Question papers were taken out of the examination halls and then answers were sent through SMSs.

Pairing chronically ill patients with medical students to create better doctors
Can someone who suffers from a lethal genetic disease teach a pair of medical students to become better doctors? That's the goal of a unique, long-term patient-student pairing program at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. Doctors-in-training -- like Christopher Guerry, a second-year medical student at Penn -- are learning what it's like to live with cystic fibrosis (CF), and many other chronic health conditions. They're shadowing patients with chronic conditions such as HIV, asthma and kidney failure. The students are taking part in the "Longitudinal Experience to Appreciate Patient Perspectives (LEAPP)" -- a program at Penn's medical school - in which students are paired with chronically ill patients for several years.
