Karnataka is all set to have AIIMS, a new medical policy and more medical colleges as said by Dr. K Sudhakar, Minister for Health and Medical Education. There is a need for more medical colleges in Karnataka to meet the need of doctors in the state.
The establishment of Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Institute of Medical Sciences and Research Centre in Shivajinagar, an institute which has 150 seats for MBBS course can be considered as the first step of the new change. Karnataka is the second state to take up such a step after Gujarat.
As per the guidelines set by the World Health Organization (WHO), there is a need of one doctor for a population of 1000 but India has got one doctor for a population of 10,000-12,000. To decrease this ratio, there is an urgent need to build up medical colleges in India and medical colleges in Karnataka.
Dr. Sudhakar added that the state has a plan of setting a new medical reform and AIIMS in Karnataka can be considered as the first step towards it. The minister also said that the state has already started working on it. Better health facilities and medical education is the aim behind the new reform.
