If you’re a Licensed Doctor, You can earn Up to Rs 2000 for two hours in Rajasthan Government Hospitals. Find Out how?
Unclean surroundings, unavailability of qualified doctors and patients waiting in long queues—the condition of Rajasthan government hospitals was downright pathetic. For several years, Rajasthan health department struggled to meet the ever-increasing shortage of qualified doctors. Fresher switched to high-paying private hospitals whereas the experienced lot preferred to have their own clinics. To solve this problem, troubled health officers borrowed a smashing idea from the private sector. Part-time hiring of doctors seemed a practical idea to fulfill the demands of both healers as well as the patients.
Rajasthan health department will lure specialist doctors on part-time basis. The wonderful news is the department will be paying them Rs 2,000 per two hours, for their service in urban PHCs (Primary Healthcare Centers). A little birdie from the state health department revealed that part-time doctors will be available for patients on every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
This move is a sensible approach towards meeting the demands of junior resident doctors. Compared to private doctors, the government ones are paid in nuts. To top it, appraisals are slow and amenities limited. In this condition, strikes and resistance from doctors is inevitable. Seeing the high number of physicians employed at public clinics and hospitals, the government finds it unable to raise their salaries. That would put an additional burden on the state exchequer.
Hiring doctors on hourly basis will not just solve their monetary demands, but also ensure that the medical practitioners are available 24×7 for the patients. As of now, only the retired healers from the government service will be able to apply as part-time specialist medical officer in Rajasthan. However, the authorities might consider junior doctors, if the need arises.
For those who don’t know, an anesthesia specialist received just Rs 1000-1500 per visit. The idea behind raising part-time salaries of specialists to Rs 2,000 was to improve the quality of healthcare services in urban areas. It’ll also fulfill the outpatient demands of bigger hospitals that can treat more patients.
Rajasthan health department has already issued a list of 245 primary health care centers that require specialists in pediatrics, gynecology, orthopedics, skin diseases, ENT and medicine. Out of these, 39 of them are in dire need of specialist doctors, 20 of them being in Jaipur itself.
As notified by a health officer, the availability of part-time physicians is:
- 8 am to 12 noon and 5 pm to 7 pm, during summers
- 9 am to 1 pm and 4 pm to 6 pm, during winters.
If you wish to apply for part time specialist job in urban PHCs, you need to provide undated registration issued by the RMC (Rajasthan Medical Council). This is a good opportunity to save countless lives. Additionally, you’ll be making more money by treating patients in your leisure time.
