NMC grants Assam permission to build Dhubri’s medical college
A new medical college in this North Eastern state of Assam was given approval by the National Medical Commission (NMC) on Monday. According to a letter from the NCM’s Medical Assessment & Rating Board (MARB), Undergraduate Section, approval has been given for the MBBS programme to begin in the academic year 2022–2023 with an annual intake of 100 students.
The MARB reviewed the assessor’s report and comments from the UG expert group on infrastructural facilities, faculty availability, and other amenities, according to a letter written to the dean/principal of the new college. The Board approved the admission of 100 MBBS students yearly beginning with the academic year 2022–2023 after reviewing clarifications on the inadequacies during a virtual hearing.
“Glad to share that the MBBS course of new Dhubri Medical College (9th medical college of Assam) under Srimanta Sankardeva University of Health Sciences with 100 seats has received the approval of Medical Assessment & Rating Board under the National Medical Commission,” wrote Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma in a tweet sharing the NCM letter.
