CM Yogi Adityanath says state to become hub of medical education, with PPP medical institutes in 16 districts
Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be inaugurating nine new medical colleges in separate districts of Uttar Pradesh on July 30, chief minister Yogi Adityanath has said.
At a COVID-19 review meeting on July 21, Adityanath announced that the medical colleges will be inaugurated in Deoria, Etah, Fatehpur, Hardoi, Pratapgarh, Siddharth Nagar, Ghazipur, Mirzapur and Jaunpur districts. The PM will be inaugurating all the colleges from Siddharth Nagar itself, he added.
According to a government official, the recruited doctors and staff at these medical colleges will receive their appointment letters from Modi during the inauguration ceremony.
These colleges will be functional by the end of this month, so that the people of Uttar Pradesh can get better health facilities. All necessary arrangements will be completed before Modi’s arrival in the state.
In a bid to make the state a hub of medical education, the government is also looking at setting up medical colleges on the public-private partnership (PPP) model across 16 districts which do not have any such institute.
According to the National Medical Commission, the state currently has 57 medical colleges, of which 29 are government-run. These include four premier medical institutes -- Ram Manohar Lohia Institute of Medical Sciences, Uttar Pradesh University of Medical Sciences, Sanjay Gandhi Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences (SGPGIMS) and King George’s Medical University (KGMU).
