NEW DELHI: The central government is grappling with a shortage of doctors and faculty in the newly established AIIMS across the country. The shortage will become more severe as more institutions are set up. So, the government is taking proactive steps to mitigate the impact of this paucity.

Even as the new All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) face an acute shortage of doctors, the central government has decided that appointments will be made directly by the AIIMS selection committee and ratified by the governing body later, India’s health minister JP Nadda has announced.

Nadda told DTMT, “We have formulated a protocol to induct all AIIMS post graduates during placement. This will ensure that we do not lose doctors to private hospitals because of any delay in recruitment process.”

The health minister declared, “For the same reason, we have also delegated powers of the Institute Body and governing body to the selection committee, which can now select and appoint doctors directly.”

Now all post-graduates from AIIMS will be appointed within the institutes across the country to fill up the huge vacancies of doctors and faculty positions.

Besides AIIMS-Delhi, there are six other AIIMS in Bhopal, Bhubaneswar, Jodhpur, Patna, Raipur and Rishikesh. The Indian government has announced setting up of 13 more AIIMS including two in Jammu and Kashmir and one each in Gorakhpur, Assam, Bathinda, Guntur, Nagpur and Kalyani.

While the quality of faculty at new AIIMS has been a concern, the government has decided to meet the shortage of doctors through a regular exchange programme, Nadda said.
