Hassan & Mandya Medical colleges to have PG course

The Karnataka Medical Education Minister Sharan Prakash Patil said that the state government would start postgraduate (PG) medical courses at Hassan and Mandya government medical colleges.

He also said that they have plans to start PG courses at Bidar and Raichur government medical colleges as they have got a permanent affiliation from the Medical Council of India (MCI), New Delhi.

In a written reply to Raghunath Rao Malkapure in the Legislative Council, he said the government, which is keen on starting medical colleges in Karwar, Kodagu, Koppal, Gadag, Gulbarga and Chamarajanagar, has invited tenders and started the construction of buildings.

"The government is keen on starting the college from this academic year in Chamarajanagar, if it gets approval from MCI," he added.

He said the government has sanctioned medical colleges in all six districts of Hyderabad-Karnataka region.

"We have also started the recruitment of staff, purchased equipment like CT scan and provided 20 acres to comply with the observations made by the MCI team. However, the ensuing elections may delay the recruitment of staff and purchase of equipment," he said.

Prakash also said that the government would also appoint directors to the medical colleges.

Hassan Institute of Medical Sciences was established in 2006 and Mandya Institute of Medical Sciences was established in 2005.
