Hey Doctors

One of my friend was in MAMC for his MS ortho some 6 years back
He used to get a lot of stipend as compared to what's mentioned here.
Why is that so?

Arshad it depends on ...from which type of Institute you are doing your MD/MS
govt/private/mission hospital...!! eg. I did my MD Pathology from mission hospital and got 13000- stipend..... my friends who were in Govt. college use to get 55,000 starting..!!

These days trainees are considered employees and get fantastic pay as compared to what we got.

In the old days trainees were considered students.
These discussion about increasing pay started with the authorities about the time I was an ortho resident here in Kolkata (here the pay is less as compared to Delhi) and pay revision has been in place for the last 10-12 odd years. So, we were pretty much among the last batch of residents who survived on pathetic pay. And it also depends on the institute as [MENTION=1638]drvictor19[/MENTION] said.


Incidentally, my Dad got Rs. 18.25 during his internship.:grin: and his first job had a pay of Rs. 425 /- PM.
