For the first time in history, Baramulla district of Jammu and Kashmir will soon get its government medical college and allied facilities.
The college, which will comprise an academic block and a residential block, will not only benefit medical students of Baramulla, Kupwara and Bandipora districts of North Kashmir but also provide better medical facilities to the people of the region.
According to Dr Javed Choudhary, principal of the college, “Staff recruitment will be done at different levels. We will, hopefully, start the first batch of 100 MBBS students from
June this year, as soon as we get the permission letter. Students will be selected on the basis of a Common Entrance Test.”
It is to be noted that the Union government has approved the construction of medical colleges in five districts of Jammu and Kashmir, namely Anantnag, Baramulla, Kathua, Rajouri and Doda.
Jammu Kashmir Project Construction Corporation (JKPCC) is taking care of the construction of the Baramulla government medical college.
