Union Health Ministry asks 62 private hospitals to consider starting Medical Colleges

New Delhi : The union Health minister MansukhMandaviya has advised 62 top charity private hospitals to start imparting MBBS and PG medical programsconsidering the resources private hospitals can bring to uplift the country’s medical education sector. If everything goes as the Center expects, around 20 of these hospitals will likely begin programs this academic year.

The proposed move by the health minister aims to add more seats, which will help provide quality and affordable medical education in India as the vast range of health infrastructure already available at these top institutions can be utilized for learning by medical candidates. Therefore, to mollify the whole procedure for these private establishments, the Centre has promised to ease paperwork and relax some norms.

According to the ANI report, Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya met with around 62 well-known private charity hospitals without medical education and asked them to start ug and pg medical courses.Hospitals, including Apollo hospitals, Amrita Hospitals, Anandamayi, Jaslok hospital in Mumbai, and Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital hospitals, attended the meeting. Wherein they discussed the documentation and criterion of the government related to land, beds, infrastructure, rules and much more.

“We have urged these widely topmost hospitals to start medical colleges for medical education to Indian students so that they do not go abroad for medical studies,” Mandaviya stated.

As per the officials, many hospitals have already submitted their applications, and those that pass the inspections will take in students from the current academic year. However, the hospitals are reluctant regarding excessive paperwork and norms related to land and infrastructure requirements, on which the Minister has promised relaxation.
