âThis is a MUHS dream project. The university is keen to complete the recruitment process by the end of this month. Subsequently, the commission would carry out an inspection before giving its final green light. MPGIMER is expected to start operating from 2022-2023, âKanitkar said. Initially, MPGIMER would provide PG medical training in seven disciplines – general medicine, pediatrics, general surgery, orthopedics, anesthesia, obstetrics and gynecology, maternity and child protection, and emergency medicine.
âThe commission would decide the seats for admissions to the PG in the seven disciplines. I think there would be at least 50 places for all disciplines, âshe added.
The students would initially take classes at the Nashik Civil Hospital. The hostel facilities would be on the MUHS campus. Nashik Civil Hospital has approximately 600 beds and six operating theaters.
âI was impressed with the medical infrastructure at Nashik Civilian Hospital during my recent visit there. Seminars and lectures will be held at the hospital itself, âKanitkar said.
“The disappearance of CDS is a personal loss for me”
MUHS VC Lt. General (Dr) Madhuri Kanitkar described the deaths of Chief of Defense Staff Bipin Rawat, his wife Madhulika and 11 other members of the IAF and the military as his âpersonal lossâ.
She said she tried to call Madhulika after initial information about the crash arrived. âHis phone, however, was not reachable. I was worried that something serious was wrong, âshe said.
She said that during her posting as Deputy Chief of the Integrated Defense Staff in Delhi, she used to interact with Rawat frequently. âHe was extremely productive, clear in his thinking and hardworking. He never used to come home before 8-9 at night. The deaths are a national loss but for me it is a personal loss, âshe said, adding that she was extremely close to Madhulika.
