NIMHANS Bangalore gets its Dues, at Last!

26 Oct

The National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro-Sciences (NIMHANS), Bangalore has been elevated as an institute of national importance by the Union government. The Union Cabinet headed by Prime Minster Dr Manmohan Singh approved a proposal of the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare in this regard recently.

The move makes NIMHANS on par with All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh and Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education & Research, Puducherry.

The Cabinet also approved introduction of the “National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences Bangalore Bill, 2009” in Parliament. This will facilitate NIMHANS to develop patterns of teaching, with the flexibility to device new courses, constantly evolving syllabi. The Institute will be able to take up new courses that are required and are not currently part of the Medical Council of India (MCI) approved courses.
