New Delhi: Prime Minister Modi will inaugurate nine medical colleges in Uttar Pradesh from Siddharth Nagar district on July 30. The announcement was made by UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath recently.
Aimed at providing better health facilities to people of Uttar Pradesh, the nine medical colleges will be made functional by July-end, said an official statement. The medical colleges will be in Deoria, Etah, Fatehpur, Ghazipur, Hardoi, Jaunpur, Mirzapur, Pratapgarh, and Siddhartha Nagar.
The state had only 12 medical colleges till 2017, but now this number is set to increase. UP has four premier medical institutes, including Sanjay Gandhi Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences (SGPGIMS), Ram Manohar Lohia Institute of Medical Sciences, Sefai Institute, and King George’s Medical University (KGMU).
The state government has planned to open medical colleges on the Public-Private-Partnership model in 16 districts of the state that do not have a medical college till now. The idea is to make UP a hub of medical education, where not only people of the state but people across the world can get all types of medical facilities.
