Radiology: hottest choice for MBBS Graduates TOI Reports
A recent TOI report on a postgraduate seat in radiology commanding a staggering Rs 4-crore capitation fee in Chennai has surprised some, but medical professionals are quick to point out that radiology is one of the most sought after specialties across the country. In Maharashtra, a radiology PG seat fetches a capitation fee of around Rs 1.45 crore; in Bangalore, colleges with just one or two seats charge up to Rs 3 crore. With only 268 medical colleges across India offering PG radiology, shortage of seats raises the price. Out of 49,418 medical students across India, only 688 get to do radiology every year.
But why are people willing to pay such stiff capitation fees?
