A clinical psychology doctor working at a premium hospital in India has been arrested by police for allegedly practicing using a fake diploma for two years. According to Indianexpress, this case came to light when a social worker complained. He admitted that someone left an envelope containing documents related to the doctor’s fake degree and professional information outside his home in April.
Based on the document, he conducted an investigation and found that the doctor’s degree claimed to be issued by a public university in Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh, was fake. After receiving the complaint, the police conducted an investigation and verified that his title was fake.
The fact that the perpetrator has been practicing with a fake diploma for two years provides a valuable lesson for organizations, including hospitals, about the importance of verifying the educational documents of their candidates.
As for legal universities or higher education institutions whose names are profiteered for fake diplomas, their reputation is threatened. Therefore, they must carry out their functions honestly and exert more effort to prove their integrity and ultimately maintain their reputation.
One of the efforts that can be taken is to verify the educational documents of their alumni. In practice, however, document verification by telephone, email, and fax is often inefficient.
A one-stop verification platform is the answer to this problem. Through a one-stop verification platform such as www.education-verification.com, the document verification process will be more efficient in terms of time and resources. In the Education Verification platform, the name of the verifier is recorded in the system, which maintains accountability in the verification process. Moreover, the verification is done in a two-step process: verification by the academic staff and confirmation by a supervisor, which promotes a check-and-balance process. All results can be accounted for and are guaranteed to be accurate.
