The vice chancellor of Jamia Millia Islamia, Najma Akhtar, declared that the university’s medical college’s construction had already begun and that admissions for 150 medical seats will begin the following year.
By creating a medical college on its campus, Jamia Millia Islamia University is making a significant advancement in the fields of education and healthcare. A hospital will also be built on an adjacent 5-acre site, according to plans. At a news conference, vice chancellor Najma Akhtar announced the university’s desire to investigate a public-private partnership strategy for financing the medical college.
The Medical College’s Vision
The management of the university is painstakingly putting together a comprehensive proposal for the medical college and the related hospital. A multi-story structure on the university campus will contain the medical college, which will operate under the heading of “Health Sciences.” With this bold decision, the community and aspirant students will have access to top-notch medical education and healthcare amenities.
Financing the Medical School
The government has granted the medical college its blessing, but it has not yet allotted cash for the project. However, Vice-Chancellor Najma Akhtar expressed optimism that the project might be launched through public-private partnerships. This approach comprises contacting private organizations and soliciting their assistance in bringing about the medical college. Such collaborations can greatly advance the institution’s development and increase its resources.
Admissions Procedures and Available Seats
It is anticipated that the new medical college will provide at least 150 places for prospective medical students. The National Eligibility Commitment Entrance Test (NEET), which has evolved into the required test for admission to medical colleges in India, would be used to administer the admissions process. The university is getting ready to start the admissions process at the beginning of the following academic year, providing qualified students the chance to follow their aspirations of becoming doctors.
Scores from CUET-UG for Admission
Jamia Millia Islamia University is examining the possibility of admitting students for a few undergraduate programmes based on their results in the Central Universities Entrance Test (CUET-UG), in addition to NEET. Twenty undergraduate courses at the university currently accept CUET scores. According to the vice chancellor, the university is looking into the prospect of expanding this program in the upcoming academic year, which would allow for the admission of additional students.
The initiative by Jamia Millia Islamia to build a medical school and hospital demonstrates the university’s dedication to all-encompassing education and neighborhood welfare. The university is planning to make a substantial contribution to the country’s healthcare industry by imagining a medical institution on its grounds and a hospital to serve the general population. The possibility of public-private cooperation makes the ambition of a top-tier medical college more feasible.
