Coming up: Combined medical College for Modern Medicine, Ayush and Homeopathy

Mumbai:The Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Devendra Fadnavis has consented to the setting up of an integrated medical facility  worth Rs 1,270 crore,  and spread over a 47 hectare campus. The medical hub will  provide  healthcare services in modern allopathy, Indian traditional and homeopathy under one roof.

This  unique project would be set up in Jalgaon city, the home town of Medical Education Minister Girish Mahajan.

The integrated institution, which would be possibly first of its kind in India, would have a medical, a dental, an Ayurveda, a homeopathy and a physiotherapy college along with their dedicated hospitals. The move seeks collaboration of all branches of medicine and offer a bouquet of healthcare services to patients as per their need.

There would be 100 seats for MBBS, 100 for Ayurveda, 50 for dental and homeopathy and 40 seats for physiotherapy. Girish Mahajan, Medical Education Minister, informed that  the “Civil hospital of Jalgaon will be affiliated with this hub. Admission for all these courses will start next academic year.”

Mahajan justifies the selection of Jalgaon claiming that north Maharashtra has just 0.54 doctors per one lakh population compared to state figure of 0.64 for 1,000 population.

The government denies any plan to formulate interdisciplinary courses for medical students in this institution, however, sources say there is no harm if doctors recommend treatments unrelated to their branch if  they offers better results, reports DNA.

    Wow good decision

  5. 1. Why in Jalgaon city, the home town of Medical Education Minister Girish Mahajan – a typical example of favoritism / conflict of interest.
    2. Should not be in haste – Needs more thought and all aspects evaluated.
    3. May be first permit the allopaths to use all the systems as a trial basis.
