AIIMS to Increase Number of Seats to 100 for MBBS from 2017

From the next academic session, AIIMS will be admitting 100 students from across the nation. Seven foreign nationals will also be admitted to the institute from 2017.The current number of seats allotted by All India Institute of Medical Sciences is 72 for Indian Nationals and 5 to the Foreign Nationals for their UG course in India and now aims to add more reaching the count of 100.

Thanks to Mr. M. C. Mishra, Director of AIIMS who has announced and approved for adding more seats to this course. Even the Foreign Nationals get a chance to bag a seat for this course and might be allotted tentatively 7 seats from this next academic session commencing in 2017.

AIIMS was established in 1956. It was the vision of Rajkumari Amrita Kaur, the first Health Minister of India, that led to the establishment of a medical institute of international repute in India. Besides, the main Delhi campus, AIIMS also has six regional centres in Bhopal, Patna, Bhubaneswar, Jodhpur, Raipur and Rishikesh.

The regional centres currently admit 100 students each but no foreign nationals. So, the UG intake of AIIMS Delhi will be increased,” Lalwani said.

Besides, we have already increased by almost 90 per cent the intake for DM (Doctorate in Medicine) and MCh (Master of Surgery) programmes. We have been expanding facilities at our Masjid Moth campus here too and at Trauma Centre we have added 1,800 beds. In next 10 years, we target 6,000 beds for AIIMS,” Misra said.

Masjid Moth and Trauma Centre by them too have being enhanced with 1800 beds to serve the aspiring students. Courses like MCh (Master of Surgery) and DM (Doctorate in Medicine) have already being amplified by 90%.

Dr. Sanjeev Lalwani, AIIMS Registrar mentioned no change will be applied for reserved categories and the regional centers won’t include any Foreign National.

The journey of 6 decades has to be a great milestone for the institution, its students and the best supporting facility without them reaching this new height wouldn’t have to be possible and that’s what made them the best over these years marking their diamond jubilee, said Mr. Mishra.
