The Union Health Ministry has invited reputed charitable hospitals in the country to set up colleges for affordable medical education. Recently, Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya held a meeting with around 62 well-known charitable hospitals that have not decided to provide medical education.

The meeting was attended by Breach Candy Hospital Mumbai, Jaslok Hospital Mumbai, Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital, Amrita Hospitals and Anandamai Hospitals.

“We have invited these well-known hospitals to open medical colleges. The aim is to create more medical education opportunities for Indian students so that they don’t have to go abroad for medical education,” Mandaviya said.

At the meeting, they learned to highlight issues related to land and infrastructure documentation and government criteria. “We have relaxed some norms to allow these charitable hospitals to open medical colleges,” he said. The aim is to provide them with affordable medical education and harness their potential so that young doctors can learn from highly qualified doctors, Mandaviya said.
