Jamia Hamdard University will set up a new medical college and two hospitals under the Hamdard Institute of Medical Sciences and Research (HIMSR). According to a statement issued by GN Qazi, Vice-Chancellor of the University they have a traditional unani medicine college for undergraduate and postgraduate studies and they wanted to run a parallel modern medicine college.
Mr Qazi talking about the admission criteria for students to the new medical college has said that they will consider the all India entrance test marks and have 50% reservation for minorities as per the law. He informed that the courses offered in the new college will be MBBS and the university plans to launch other medical courses too when they get permission. He also added that they will admit 100 students per-year.
Moreover, while talking about future plans, he said that they want to set up another campus in Haryana. The new campus would cater to developing skills among school dropouts, matriculates and among the uneducated. Traditionally the Muslim community has been a skilled community of artisans, craftsmen and carpet weavers but over a period of time, it got diluted. They would like to bring them back to the mainstream. He also added that the country needs a skilled workforce. India’s workforce is not well educated and through the new venture, they want to provide them with rigorous vocational training.”
