I am astonished that you are debating on a topic which we in IAPS (Indian Associatio of Pediatric Surgeons) debated long back in 2009 in our Annual Conference. The situation is dismal here. There is hardly any taker of Pediatric Surgery MCh seats even in premier institutions like AIIMS New Delhi. Meritorious Students are opting for Neuro/Uro/Plastic Surgeries where income is more. Money is taking over love and passion as descent living needs a descent amount. Associations should formulate fee-structures for Pediatric Surgeons based on market value; those in service in their early life should have some sort of social security to par with income of other branches or more research grants etc.
