A three-member team will soon begin the process of integration of the staff at the Ernakulam Medical College into the government system under the Directorate of Medical College (DME).

Senior Administrative Officer from the DME, Deputy Secretary at the Department of Health and the Special Officer at the medical college will be involved in the process that will include verification of certificates and authenticating the personnel in various positions so far enrolled with the Cooperative Academy of Professional Education.

The team is expected to complete the process in three days beginning May 6.

The process of staff integration had been delayed even as the government takeover came about by extending all facilities to poor patients from March 1 onwards. The government had decided to take over the college in principle in December 2013.
