Dr. Subrat K. Acharya, HOD and professor of Gastroenterology at AIIMS New Delhi has been offered the Directorship of the AIIMS-like institute in Bhubaneswar

September 20th, 2011

Following is an excerpt from a report in Times of India.

Four top doctors of All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) have been chosen as directors for the four upcoming AIIMS prototypes. The Union health ministry has sent a letter to professor of neurology Dr Kameshwar Prasad, professors of medicine Dr S K Sharma and Dr Rita Sood and professor of gastroenterology Dr S K Acharya offering them the coveted posts.

While Dr Prasad has been asked to take over the institute in Raipur, Dr Sharma has been offered the Jodhpur branch, Dr Sood the Rishikesh branch and Dr Acharya the Bhubaneswar branch. All of them have been asked to join on November 1.

… Union health minister Ghulam Nabi Azad said in the Rajya Sabha recently that the medical colleges of these six institutions will be functional by next year. Ministry officials said the colleges would be functional from July, 2012, while the hospitals would be in place by early 2013.

"For the first year of medical education, students don’t require hospital visits. That’s why the colleges will start from next year," an official said.

Each of the six medical colleges – a Rs 10,000-crore project – will have 100 MBBS seats. Each of the hospitals will have 960 beds, including 500 beds for the medical college hospital, 300 beds for speciality/super speciality and 100 beds for ICU/accident trauma.

The Union health ministry has also put three of the best known existing medical institutes – AIIMS, Delhi; JIPMER, Puducherry; and PHI, Chandigarh, in charge of helping the six new institutes stand on their feet. AIIMS, Delhi, has been mentoring the two new institutions in Patna and Bhubaneswar, PGI has been mentoring those coming up in Rishikesh and Jodhpur, while JIPMER has been overseeing the prototypes in Bhopal and Raipur.

"The existing institutes will help the new ones select their faculty, establish their laboratory network, conduct entrance exams and plan their curriculum," an official added.

The web page of the AIIMS New Delhi Department of Gastroenterology is at http://www.aiims.edu/aiims/departments/Gastro/gastrofaculty.htm and lists Prof. Subrat K Acharya as its HOD.

A doctor friend tells me that Prof. Subrat K Acharya did his MBBS from SCB Medical College, Cuttack.

Update: Prof. Acharya did his MBBS from MKCG Medical college; but he was a faculty at SCB medical college before he went to AIIMS New Delhi.
