Some National and Six Regional Institutes of Paramedical Sciences are being established

Following is an excerpt from a report in Expressbuzz.com

Bangalore Medical College and Research Institution (BMCRI) will soon house the Regional Institute of Para-medical Sciences (RIPS), which is aimed at ensuring a steady supply of qualified paramedical staff in the state and across the country.

The proposed RIPS is one of the six such regional training centres proposed by the Centre to augment shortage of men in the health sector.The work on the two National Institute of Para-medical Centres at Najafgarh, Delhi and Chengalpet in Tamil Nadu is going on at brisk pace.The BMRCI already runs six courses in the paramedical discipline. “Once the RIPS starts, about 10 new courses will be introduced.

The institute will have a capacity of 1,000 students and the admission will be through the CET.In the line of IITs, IIMs and AIIMS, these institutions will become a model training institutions for paramedical education in the country.” said,Dr G T Subhash, Dean and Director, BMCRI.“

… According to an official estimated, there is 4.3 million shortage of para-medical staff world-wide with acute shortage in South-East Asian region.According to WHO report India needs to invest at least US$2 billion per annum to for the next six years. India faces a crunch of about 60-70 percent paramedical staffs, as the paramedical education system seems to be unorganised and as such there is no paramedical council and accreditation system. …

Paramedicals are persons trained to assist medical professionals in thediagnosis and treatment of patients. These includes:

● Medical laborotory technologists, blood bank technologists.

● Nurses, skilled birth attendants, operation theatre assistants.

● Radiographers, radiotherapy technologists, perfusion technologists, ECG, EEG and EMG technologists.

● Physiotherapists, occupational therapists, audiology and speech therapists, orthotists/ prosthetists.

● Optometrists, pharmacists, clinical psychologists, pre hospital trauma technicians, dental mechanics, dialysis technologists and medical records technologists.

Besides the above,  a Regional institute of Paramedical and Nursing Sciences (RIPANS) is already established in Aizawl and one is being tried in Kozhikode, Kerala. Following is an excerpt about the later from a news item in oneindia.in.

 

Kerala Health Minister P K Sreemathy today said the government was expecting a formal approval from the Centre for the proposed Regional Institute of Paramedical Sciences(RIPS) at the Kozhikode Medical College Hospital within three months.

Talking to reporters here, she said the government had allotted 25 acres of land for the purpose and the expert team, which inspected the site, had expressed satisfaction.

The institute, to be set up at a cost of Rs 90 crore, would conduct 57 new courses, she said and added that the project would be implemented as part of the second anniversary of the Left Democratic Front (LDF) Government in the state.

Ms Sreemathy said the Health Department would start three nursing colleges in Malampuzha, Uduma and Pallurthy and the government was waiting a formal approval from the Medical Council.

Why is not Orissa pursuing one of these?
