The Delhi government has decided to set up a medical college in Dwarka which will be associated with the Indira Gandhi hospital which was opened for Covid-19 treatment after the country witnessed a massive second wave.

The medical college will be constructed in Dwarka sector 17 and it is expected to be completed by 2025, as reported by Indian Express. 

“The country needs good doctors, and keeping this in mind, it was decided to open a medical school based on modern technology and health services in Dwarka Sector-17. This will benefit meritorious students and society as a whole. Meritorious students who cannot afford the fees of private medical colleges will be able to make their dreams come true in the medical field by getting a chance to secure a seat in this government medical college,” said Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain, as reported by News 18.

Apart from this, a 600-bedded maternal and child care hospital equipped with state-of-the art facilities will be built on the campus of the Indira Gandhi Hospital in Dwarka Sector-9 for providing better infant care in the capital.

“The number of beds in government hospitals will be increased rapidly during the next few years. We are also working to expand the capacity of various hospitals. The Kejriwal government is committed to its goal and is dedicated to serving the people, which is why affordable and quality healthcare is being provided to people of Delhi,” added Satyendar Jain.

Through this new medical college in Dwarka sector 17, initially, only MBBS courses will be offered and later on, PG courses like MD, MS, DM etc will also be offered. The government is yet to decide the number of MBBS seats that the college will offer.
