In a major development for the state of Nagaland, the National Medical Commission (NMC) has given its approval for the establishment of the Nagaland Institute of Medical Sciences & Research (NIMSR) in Kohima.
This will be the first medical college in the state and will offer 100 MBBS seats from the academic session 2023-24, starting from June-July 2023.
The NIMSR will be located near Kohima, the state capital, and will serve as a much-needed boost to the healthcare infrastructure of the state. The medical college has been a dream project for Nagaland for several years, and the approval by the NMC has finally brought the project to fruition.
The NIMSR will be run by the state government and will aim to provide high-quality medical education and training to students from Nagaland and other parts of the country. The medical college will have state-of-the-art infrastructure and facilities, including a modern hospital, lecture halls, laboratories, and a library.
The establishment of the NIMSR is expected to address the shortage of doctors and medical professionals in Nagaland and provide better healthcare services to the people of the state. It will also help in retaining talented students within the state who otherwise have to go outside the state for medical education.
The Chief Minister of Nagaland, Neiphiu Rio, has welcomed the approval of the NIMSR and thanked the NMC for its support. He said that the establishment of the medical college is a historic milestone for the state and will go a long way in improving the healthcare system of Nagaland.
The NIMSR is expected to create employment opportunities for local people and boost the economy of the state. The medical college will also provide a platform for research and innovation in the field of medicine and healthcare.
The approval of the NIMSR by the NMC has been widely hailed by the people of Nagaland, and it is seen as a major step towards the development of the state.
The medical college is expected to attract talented students and faculty from all over the country and help in creating a pool of skilled medical professionals who can serve the people of Nagaland and the country at large.
