Jorhat Medical College to get a new neurosurgery department
Jorhat: A neurosurgery facility worth Rs.11 crore is soon to be introduced at the Jorhat Medical College and Hospital (JMCH), by the state government.
Saurav Borkotoky, JMCH Superintendent on Tuesday, said "The government has sanctioned Rs 11 crore for constructing a separate building and purchasing medical instruments and equipment for the neurosurgery department. We have started the required work which we hope to complete by April this year. The government has newly appointed a neurosurgeon in our hospital to monitor the ongoing process and he has already joined work."
JMCH is Assam's fourth medical college and was established in 2009.
JMCH authorities in conversation with the Times of India informed that a feasibility study had already been completed by the Medical Council of India in response to the college’s demand for postgraduate courses in 9 of its departments.
"An MCI team visited JMCH for introducing postgraduate courses in the college. They have given some recommendations regarding the number of faculty members and accordingly the government has sanctioned 23 new posts," said JMCH Deputy Superintendent, Nilutpal Bhattacharya.
