V. Kanagasabai, Dean, Madras Medical College (MMC), was given full additional charge of the post of Director of Medical Education (DME) on Monday. This was consequent to the retirement of C. Vamsadhara from the DME’s post.

Dr. Kanagasabai, who has four more months in service, will continue as Dean, MMC, too, according to official sources in the health department. Meanwhile, preparations are on to constitute a panel to select a full-time candidate as DME, and this would take some time, sources added.
