UP Plans for 14 New Medical Colleges

Uttar Pradesh cabinet has approved the setting up of 14 new medical colleges in the state which is aimed at strengthening medical education and provide manpower to hospitals, medical research institutes and other centres, according to Mr Suresh Khanna, State Education Minister. Once functional, at least 45 districts in the state will have a government medical college. For the remaining, the state government was working out a public-private partnership model. Since Yogi Adityanath assumed charge as Chief Minister seven new medical colleges have been constructed. The affiliation board in Uttar Pradesh is the Atal Bihari Vajpayee Medical University that would start giving affiliations to new medical colleges. With the new colleges being set up, students need not go to South Indian states and pay huge donation fees to study medicine, Mr Suresh Khanna added. In addition to 14 colleges approved by Cabinet, 14 more are likely to be approved in phases.
