The results of one vacancy will be announced after an interview. DME Assistant Professors is a specialised notification provided by TSPSC and filling the large number of assistant professors' vacancies would provide some respite in the current pandemic situation and help improve overall health services in Telangana, said Ghanta Chakrapani, Chairman of TSPSC.
