To impart the medical education across the Telangana state, government has decided to set up 5 medical colleges in each district, where there are no medical colleges.
Telangana Deputy Chief Minister T Rajaiah informed in the Legislative council.
These new medical colleges will be established in Nalgonda, Medak, Karimnagar, Mahbubnagar and Khammam districts. Government has also planned to establish a health university in Warangal.
Currently, students used to go to Vijayawada for various medical course, but with the new health varsity in Warangal, students will be benefited. State government had already issued the orders for establishing a university named the Kaloji Narayana Rao University of Health Sciences and passed Rs 5 crores for this purpose.
Rajaiah said that there are 20 medical colleges in Telangana state, in which 5 government medical colleges, 3 minority institutions and 12 non-minority colleges with total of 2,950 MBBS seats.
State government has sent a written letter to the central government in this regard. The govt has identified 200 acres of land and sent the proposal to the union ministry of health sciences.
