AIIMS

Introduction

1.1 AIIMS, New Delhi

An Act of Parliament in 1956 established the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) as an autonomous institution of national importance and defined its objectives and functions. By virtue of this Act, the Institute awards its own medical degrees and other academic distinctions. The degrees awarded by the Institute under the All India Institute of Medical Sciences Act are recognized medical qualifications for the purpose of the Indian Medical Council Act and notwithstanding anything contained therein, are deemed to be included in the first schedule of that Act, entitling the holders to the same privileges as those attached to the equivalent awards from the recognized Universities of India.

1.2 Six other AIIMS

Under the Pradhan Mantri Swasthya Suraksha Yojana six new All India Institutes of Medical Sciences have been established similar to AIIMS, New Delhi. However, from this academic session the Government of India has decided that the admission in PG courses will also be done in four other AIIMS at Bhopal, Bhubaneswar, Jodhpur and Rishikesh. The proposal is for an intake of 35 (8,15,10 & 2 seats respectively) students for the institutions. As per the directives of the Ministry selection for admission will be done through the same Entrance Examination through which candidates are selected for AIIMS, New Delhi. The admission will be done on the basis of merit-cum-choice of the candidates.
