    AIIMS Bhubaneswar soon to Start Ayush Wing

    BHUBANESWAR: All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Bhubaneswar, is planning to offer postgraduate courses in at least eight basic sciences and para-clinical disciplines starting December.

    Addressing a news conference, AIIMS director Ashok Mahapatra said the institute will offer MS in anatomy, MD in physiology, biochemistry, pathology, microbiology, forensic medicine, pharmacology and community medicine. Besides, it will also admit PhD students in these disciplines, he said on Tuesday, a day before the institute celebrates it foundation day.

    "We hope the governing body of the institute (chaired by Union health minister J P Nadda) will give the go-ahead for opening of the courses," he said.

    Just like its parent institute AIIMS New Delhi, AIIMS Bhubaneswar will admit students for postgraduate and postdoctoral courses twice a year, in December and July. Two students will be taken in each course every admission session.

    Mahapatra said the institute will start its AYUSH wing soon. Initially, there would be 30 beds for ayurveda and as many for homoeopathy. The infrastructure is ready and the institute is waiting for the health ministry's nod for appointing two doctors, one for Ayurveda and another for homoeopathy, besides the support staff.

    The institute has total 69 faculty members and recently advertised for 244 more posts (the online application process is scheduled to start on July 20). These include 43 professors, 38 additional professors, 73 associate professors and 90 assistant professors in altogether 41 disciplines.

    In the ongoing counseling for MMBS admission, 92 students have opted for AIIMS, Bhubaneswar. The counseling for the rest eight students will be held soon. The premier hospital has 330 beds and offered OPD care to 1.25 lakh patients and indoor care to 6,600 in past six months, hospital sources said.
