This State To Have 8 More Medical Colleges In 2 Years

Ahmedabad: Gujarat government is mulling setting up eight new medical colleges in the next two years in the state. There will be 1,200 MBBS seats more, which is about 21 per cent of Gujarat’s total number of prevailing seats, sources in the state health department told The Times of India.

The Admission Committee for Professional Under Graduate Medical Educational Courses (ACPUGMEC) carries out the admission process for 30 medical colleges with 5,508 seats in Gujarat. Two deemed universities carry out the admission process for another 300 seats, in which ACPUGMEC is not involved.

“The new medical colleges in Morbi, Godhra and Porbandar are expected to start in 2021-22. The inspection process by National Medical Commission (NMC) has been completed. The new medical colleges will add about 150 seats each,” an official in the health department was quoted as saying by TOI.

The new medical colleges are likely to be set up in Rajpipla, Navsari, Jam Khambhaliya, Botad and Veraval in the next academic year, he added.
