New Medical Colleges in District Hospitals by PPP mode

Date: 03-Feb-2021

New Medical Colleges are to be set up in existing district hospitals through Public Private Partnership (PPP) mode according to the new budget 2020-21 presented by Union Finance Minister, Nirmala Sitharaman. These medical colleges will be built along those hospitals that are ready to provide all the facilities of the hospital to the medical college and are ready to provide lands at concession. These hospitals would be able to receive Viability Gap Funding; the details of the scheme would be worked out later.

The government is planning to encourage large government hospitals with sufficient capacity to offer resident doctors diploma and fellow of National Board (DNB/FNB) courses under the National Board of Examination. This is to fill up the shortage of qualified medical doctors, both general practitioners as well as specialists. Having more medical colleges in India wouldn’t only increase the number of doctors in the country but would also provide more opportunities for medical admissions for students.

The budget also proposed to introduce special bridge courses for teachers, nurses, Para-medical staff and care-givers to be designed by the Ministries of Health and Skill Development together. The minister said that with the increasing demand of these professionals abroad, their skill sets, many a time, do not match the employer’s standards which are needed to be improved. Introducing these special courses would bring ring in equivalence. The budget also proposed to look after the language requirements of various countries through special training packages.
