Congratulations to Prof. Dr S Elango on receiving
the Best Medical Teacher award.

This news clipping has not mentioned how this selection was made.

In my opinion the medical students studying the graduate programme (MBBS & BDS) should directly vote in favour of the teacher whose names may be nominated by medical degree holders of the same university in selecting the Best Teacher.

The nomination process and selection methods for awards like Dr B C Roy Award are dubious and not transparent. There are a large number of excellent teachers in medical colleges across the nation. They however never get the recognition which they deserve to receive for their dedicated service they had rendered/ or have been giving now, towards the student community.

The nomination and voting could be done on line.

The award should ideally be given to more than one teacher considering the total number of medical teachers in the state.
