India to get 75 new state-run and owned public medical colleges in the next three years by the year 2022. The establishments will be joined to districts and referral medical clinics in under-served areas that have a minimum of 200 beds, the administration said. In this way, 15,700 extra medicinal seats will get accessible for hopeful specialists under a formerly endorsed use program of ₹24,375 crores. 82 such universities were set up over the most recent 5 years, Union minister Prakash Javadekar said. India by and by faces a huge shortage of 600,000 medical professionals there’s only one government doctor is available for 10,189 people.
A new Foundation laid by the Indian Government for 75 State-owned Medical Colleges declared today in Phase 3, notwithstanding the nearly finished 82 Medical Colleges crosswise over India in the previous stages, will undoubtedly change the entire Healthcare services scene crosswise over India.
It will not only bring quality healthcare nearer to the rural population but also give a huge boost to class C and D cities. A lot of support and ancillary activities/industry will crop up alongside creating jobs and wealth too.
It will also have a cascading effect of ensuring a better quality of life thereby attracting more people and better investments to these places.
This opening of 75 medical colleges in the final damage to the medical profession done after NMC. Now you will find doctors in every corner of the street like garbage and quality is definitely going to deteriorate. India will no longer be known for quality medical professionals anymore.
Elated about the investment in medical colleges. Health and education should be the top priorities of the government if we are planning for the next 50-100 years. Without a healthy and educated population, the country can neither feed itself nor defend itself in the future. We will be left buying arms and ammunition from developed countries in exchange for coal and rice.
Seventy-five medical colleges are really a huge number. It will surely affect the quality of medical education. But, the most important thing is the facilities for each college. Recently opened AIIMS and IITs are already in the queue of getting facilities of their levels.
As long as quality standards of education are upheld, indeed it is a welcome move!
Will more medical colleges eventually improve the patient-doctor ratio?
