Mandira Medical Hospital Madurai Tirumangalam

A group of non-resident doctors are coming up with a Rs 300-crore rural institute of medical sciences at Tirumangalam, about 30km from here.

The first phase of the institute, a 300-bed multi-specialty hospital, would come by December next year and a medical college would start functioning from August, 2014, P Madhu, coordinator of the project, told reporters here today.

The Institute -- Mandira Institute of Medical Sciences -- is fully an initiative of NRI doctors to contribute to the creation of an equitable healthcare infrastructure In India and augment the supply of its physician workforce.

"We will have 700-beds when the first batch of 150 students complete their MBBS by 2019," he said.

"The world class medical college would utilise modern, state-of-art medical education technology, including digital teaching boards and virtual dissection methodology," he added.

The college would be modelled on some of the best medical universities in the world, he said, adding, it would be staffed by a number of returning NRI doctors trained in some of the world's medical centres like Harvard Medical school and University of Pittsburg.
