As far as CHS cadre is concerned, recruitment of doctors is made by the UPSC on the basis of the requirement projected by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare. Further, the hospitals/institutes concerned are also permitted to make contractual appointments against the vacant posts as a stop-gap arrangement in public interest so that the patient care does not suffer.

Selection process to fill up 103 vacant posts in AIIMS was initiated in 2012 and 99 candidates have joined so far to the faculty post against which they had been selected.  Further 138 posts of Assistant Professor have been advertised in 2012.

PGIMER, Chandigarh has also advertised vacant posts for their filling up. 40 posts of faculty of different specialties have been recruited by PGIMER, Chandigarh on ad-hoc basis so that patient care does not suffer.
