Medical education has not yet been critically reviewed and discussed in independent India. While doing so, the overall health situation of the country has to be taken into account and the structural as well as academic aspects of medical education should be considered. The decisions should be worked out in relation to three parameters: an extensive access to medical aid for every Indian citizen; different medical systems in India should be integrated with one another and professionalism should be balanced against social justice in a manner that neither is sacrificed at the cost of the other.
