The interface of law with medical education brings to the fore a range of topics starting from establishing educational institutions to securing admission, from setting standards of medical education not merely of students passing out of colleges established in India but also to appraising persons who have graduated from foreign universities before being granted the license to practice in India. The IMC regulations provide the course content and admission norms but the preoccupation has been essentially in garnering the limited number of seats in colleges by application of rules of reservation without compromising on issues of merit. Private enterprise in establishing colleges has raised the costs of medical education and unconscionable levy of capitation fees. State control that began as attempts to abolish the practice have been tempered with over a time through judicial pronouncements that have not been consistent. Minority-run institutions have pressed home to enjoy immunities from state control in matters of admission and levy of hefty tuition fees. Flights of students to hitherto unknown foreign universities for acquisition of degrees have become common place.
