21st February 2010, Sunday
A meeting of State IMA leaders was held at New Delhi on 15th February 2010 to finalize the Rural Health Care model for India. Following are the excerpts.
Idealist model is that only MBBS Doctors must offer Health Care to Rural Indians too
When idealistic model is not achievable, a realistic/interim model is needed. It is wise to examine this Realistic Model and make it safe for the public and profession. All the leaders carried out this exercise very well and the conclusions are as below:
New Rural Health Course should be a Health Sciences qualification not a Medical Science qualification. It will be Diploma with three letters only.
The above were unanimously agreed by the members present. (Dr. S. Arulrhaj, MD)

Testing for thiopurine methyltransferase (TPMT) activity should be considered before initiating therapy.
