More Medical Colleges to be established by Government
The central government is looking forward to set up more medical colleges across the country due to the increasing pressure mounting on the existing AIIMS. To execute the goal, the Finance minister is also trying to ease out the regulations in medical council and municipal norms. Jaitley has asked the health ministry to provide some support without getting into micro management of institute.
Jaitley said, "We need more medical colleges. Both public and private sector education has expanded. But medical colleges are still inadequate. A review of the policy is required as far as increasing the number of medical schools is concerned.” He also mentioned that India has the ability to produce enormous human talent as in the US every one of the seven patients is treated by a doctor from Indian origin and a large sector of medical field is operated by Indian doctors.
He added further, “"We need to expand quality institutions. The restraints on the great hospitals - unavailability of contiguous land, inability to have medical colleges next to it -- need a serious review. We have ready-made hospitals of excellence which have worked for decades and there is no reason why, by relaxing municipal laws and medical council regulations, we are not able to encourage the expansion of a few hundred more medical colleges in India.”
