It has been around 15 years since Central Council of Homoeopathy (CCH) had started MD (Hom) Psychiatry. The objective behind the course was to produce homoeopathic specialists at par with allopathic psychiatrists.
So what is the basis for recruiting allopathic psychiatrists in a homoeopathic hospital (CRI, Kottayam)?
If these posts, which are meant for homoeopathic psychiatrists, are filled by allopaths, then what is the role of homoeopathic psychiatrists?
If the argument is that homoeopaths are not capable, then whether it is an admission that the CCH has failed in producing quality specialists?
Even in such scenario also, allopaths can be appointed only as consultant for a specified period till homoeopathic MD Psychiatrists learn and get confidence to manage the case alone.
