Dr. R P Singh, Head of the Dermatology Department, has been given the charge as the Acting Dean of Government Medical College and Hospital (GMCH), Nagpur. Dr Rajaram Powar, after being transferred to Mumbai, has handed over the charge to Dr. Singh. Dr. Singh will perform as the Acting Dean, until the regular appointment of the new Dean.
The GMCH Dean, Dr. Powar, who has been transferred to DMER, Mumbai as OSD, held the post of Dean GMCH for the past four and half years. Dr. Singh got the job as Dean due to his seniority and earlier also during the absence of Dr. Powar, he used look after the affairs of GMCH.
Lobbying for the regular Dean’s post has started with Senior Professors of GMCH staking their claims for the coveted post.
