Medical Colleges In Orissa To Increase 300 Seats
Now-a-days, the government of Orissa has seriously felt for shortage of qualified medicos in the state. As per the available information, there are 10,288 doctors on duty, while the present vacancies are for 11,763 doctors. The health minister has expressed concern for this in the recent session of state assembly.
Over the years, the state is reeling under the shortage of doctors. As the government is seriously considering setting up more medical colleges at various parts of the state, as an immediate measure, it has decided to increase 100 seats for students' admission in each of the three colleges in order to contain the problem in future.
In Orissa, treatment for mental patients is also a marginal one because of unavailability of qualified doctors and modern apparatus. There is need for qualified and skilled Para-medical staff in all the hospitals.
