Plan to open medical college in Hazaribag

HAZARIBAG: Plans are afoot to establish a medical college and hospital under Vinoba Bhave University (VBU). A decision to this effect was taken at a 
high-level meeting attended by VBU vice chancellor Arvind Kumar, leading doctors and residents of the town, noted educationists and the vice-chairman of the Hazaribag Municipal Corporation here on Sunday.

Addressing the meeting, the VBU VC said that he mooted the idea after taking into consideration the sincere efforts of the state government towards providing financial assistance and necessary facilities to VBU to introduce engineering and management courses from the current academic session.

The VC said that the state's first dental college-cum-research centre, which is affiliated to VBU, is already functioning for the last few years. An OPD centre has also come up on the university premises under the guidance of Dr Rajat Chakrabortee.

Kumar said that the OPD centre would be upgraded with a 100-bed hospital. He said that the medical college at Hazaribag would be known as University College of Medical Sciences.

The meeting also deliberated on the ideal site for the medical college. It was of the view that over 100 acres of land belonging to the Calcutta Pinjrapole Society on the eastern part of the Hazaribag town would prove to be an ideal site for the medical college.

Secretary of the local unit of the Calcutta Pinjrapole Society Dhan Kumar Jain suggested that a delegation headed by the vice chancellor should meet the director of the Pinjrapole Society and impress upon him the need to donate the land to VBU to open the much-needed medical college at Hazaribag.

The VC said that he would approach the state government and the leading industrial houses in Jharkhand and seek fund to give shape to the idea.

Dr M K Singh of VBU and Dr Rajat Chakrabortee have been appointed co-ordinator and joint co-ordinator, respectively, of a 10-member committee constituted to work out the details of the proposed medical college. Source:timesofindia.indiatimes.com
