BJMC, Ahmedabad will be among six such colleges in the India that will be raised on the lines of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi. State Health and Family Welfare authorities say that the college will be well-groomed and upgraded over the next four years. The timeline of the project is around four years which will require an investment of over USD$200 million. A fool-proof plan is being made by the government to refurbish the college’s 100-year-old infrastructure, which will include a new super-specialty hospital.
All BJMC students and my fellow Amdavadis must be proud of the fact that we will be happy to have such fantastic doctors. BJMC is the place to be.
