Profile of All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS)


Introduction
Creating a country imbued with a scientific culture was Jawaharlal Nehru's dream, and immediately after independence he prepared a grand design to achieve it. Among the temples of modern India which he designed, was a centre of excellence in the medical sciences. Nehru's dream was that such a centre would set the pace for medical education and research in Southeast Asia , and in this he had the wholehearted support of his Health Minister, Rajkumari Amrit Kaur.

The health survey and development committee ,chaired by Sir Joseph Bhore, an Indian Civil Servant ,had in 1946 already recommended the establishment of a national medical centre which would concentrate on meeting the need for highly qualified manpower to look after the nation's expanding health care activities . The dreams of Nehru and Amrit Kaur and the recommendations of the Bhore Committee converged to create a proposal which found favor with the government of New Zealand. A generous grant from New Zealand under the Colombo Plan made it possible to lay the foundation stone of All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in 1952.The AIIMS was finally created in 1956,as an autonomous institution through an Act of Parliament ,to serve as a nucleus for nurturing excellence in all aspect of health care.

All-India Institute of Medical Sciences was established as an institution of national importance by an Act of Parliament with the objects to develop patterns of teaching in Undergraduate and Post-graduate Medical Education in all its branches so as to demonstrate a high standard of Medical Education in India; to bring together in one place educational facilities of the highest order for the training of personnel in all important branches of health activity; and to attain self-sufficiency in Post-graduate Medical Education.

The Institute has comprehensive facilities for teaching, research and patient-care. As provided in the Act, AIIMS conducts teaching programs in medical and para-medical courses both at undergraduate and postgraduate levels and awards its own degrees. Teaching and research are conducted in 42 disciplines. In the field of medical research AIIMS is the lead, having more than 600 research publications by its faculty and researchers in a year. AIIMS also runs a College of Nursing and trains students for B.Sc.(Hons.) Nursing post-certificate) degrees.

Twenty-five clinical departments including four super specialty centers manage practically all types of disease conditions with support from pre- and Para-clinical departments. However, burn cases, dog-bite cases and patients suffering from infectious diseases are not entertained in the AIIMS Hospital. AIIMS also manages a 60-beded hospital in the Comprehensive Rural Health Centre at Ballabgarh in Haryana and provides health cover to about 2.5 lakh population through the Centre for Community Medicine.

Objectives of AIIMS
*To develop a pattern of teaching in undergraduate and postgraduate medical education in all its branches so as to demonstrate high standard of medical education to all medical colleges and other allied institutions in India.

*To bring together in one place educational facilities of the highest order for the training of the personnel in all important branches of the health activity.

*to attain self sufficiency in postgraduate in medical education.

Functions of AIIMS
*Undergraduate and postgraduate teaching in medical and related physical biological sciences.

*Nursing and dental education

*Innovations in education.

*Producing medical teachers for the country.

*Research in medical and related sciences.

*Health care : preventive, promotive and curative; primary, secondary & tertiary.

*Community based teaching and research

Research And Clinical Programs
At AIIMS research is not just a routine activity but rather a mission with three objectives. As anywhere else, the primary purpose of research is to gratify curiosity by disciplined activity, thereby leading to creation of new knowledge. But at AIIMS, we are also conscious of the role research can play in improving the quality of teaching. A teacher engaged in research is up to date with recent information, and can also inculcate a sprit of enquiry and freedom of thought into his/her students. Finally, research at AIIMS is apart of our national endeavour to cultivate a scientific temper and to eliminate from our society the way of authority and superstition.

Image Analysis System
Image analysis system for quantitative a and stereological study of tissues.
Research at AIIMS is a part of our national endaeavour to cultivate a scientific temper and to eliminate from our society the sway of authority and superstition .

While AIIMS attracts sizeable grants from national and international agencies,the Institution itself also offers modest research grants. The grants are sanction after the projects submitted have been screened by a Commitee and are primary meant to initiate the junior faculty into research. Thus, other things being equle, preference is given to younger application. After an investigator has made some progress,he or she can apply for biger grants from other agencies.

There is a wide variety of research performed at AIIMS. On the one hand we do sophisticated investigations in the neurosciences, in genetics and on computer simulation of hormone-receptor interaction.On the other hand ,we undertake clinical and epidemiological studies on the prevention and treatment of national health problems. We are trying to apply advanced techniques such as DNA recombinant technology, immunology and electron microscopy to study the common diseases in our country such as leprosy, malaria , tuberculosis, diabeties, diarrhoea, hepatitis, fluorosis and iodine deficiency. We have large internationally funded programmes on goals-oriented research in reproduction aimed at widening the variety of acceptable contraceptives. The scientific publications emanating from the Institute have been quite steady at about 2 publications per faculty member per year.about half of these publications are in journals covered by the Science Citation Index.During the 8 year period from 1980-88, AIIMS topped the list of medical colleges in India with (mean SD) 237.5 37.3 Science Citation index-listed publications per year (Reddy et al. Natl Med J India 1991; 4: 90-92).During the 7 year period from 1987-94, AIIMS topped the list of institutions engaged in medical research in India with 1630 Medline-listed publications (Arunachalam. Current Science 1997; 72:912-922).

The quality and range of research at AIIMS may be judged from the following highly selected assortment of some thrust areas.

Control of Diarrheal disease
In 1980s,40% of pediatric beds in hospitals were occupied by cases of diarrheal dehydration. In 1997 it is dificult to find such a case even for demonstration in many parts of India.Basic, applied and operational research done at AIIMS has played a pivotal role in achieving this transformation. Recently we have developed two types of super oral rehydration solutions based on amino concentration.

We are trying to apply advanced techniques such as DNA recombinant technology,immunology and electron microscopy to study the common diseases in our country.

WHO will formally introduce this new formulation in the Global Diarrheal DiseaseControl Programme this year.AIIMS has developed an algorithm for the treatment of persistent diarrhea, which the WHO introduced in the Global Diarrheal Disease Control Programme in 1994. The bacterium responsible for 50% of the cases of persistent diarrhea has been discovered at AIIMS and provisionally named Enteroaggregative E.coli. AIIMS research on the role of zinc deficiency in diarrheal disease was cited by the "Time Magazine" in 1996 as good news for child health.

Flowcytometry
Flowcytometry in progress in the Biotechnology Laboratory for identification of DNA ploidy and surface markers in cancer cells.

Rotavirus was demonstrated at AIIMS to be the major cause of diarrheal disease.Now we have developed a rotavirus vaccine in collaboration with the Department of Biotechnology, which is ready for phase-1 trials to be started this year.

Early and sure diagnosis of tuberculosis
AIIMS has developed a PCR test for the diagnosis of tuberculosis. The test, which is specially useful for extrapulmonary tuberculosis, gives the diagnosis within 24-48 hours of receiving the sample in contrast with conventional tests which take 6-8 weeks.
Leprosy

Contributions of AIIMS towards research on this dreaded disease include:
* Development of an anti-leprosy vaccine which is undergoing trials in Kanpur district.

* Trials of interferon in the treatment of leprosy.

* Use of DNA technology to identify genes of diagnostic significance.

* Development of tests that identify patients at risks of developing life-threatening reactions.

Physiology Study In Progress
A behavioural physiology study in progress.

Malaria
By using modern DNA technologies at AIIMS, it has now become possible for the first time in India to study the strains of the parasite responsible for an epidemic.

HIV Diagnostic test
AIIMS has developed indigenously a highly sensitive and specific ELISA system for detecting HIV antibodies. It costs less than half the imported test kits, and has detected many early cases which the imported kits could not.

AIIMS has developed indigenously a highly sensitive and specific ELISA system for detecting HIV antibodies.It costs less than half the imported test kits, and has detected many early cases which the imported kits could not.AIIMS has been one of the Reference Centres for HIV/AIDS since 1986, and the National HIV Reference Centre since 1992.

Research To Control Liver Disease
Epidemiological,clinical and basic research at AIIMS has assessed the magnitude of the problem, led to the development of an indigenous diagnostic test and a candidate vaccine, and a diagnostic assay system for screening blood donors for hepatitis C virus.

Diagnostic Test For Plague
AIIMS was the first place in the world to use PCR on formaline fixed autopsy material to detect and confirm plague during the1994 outbreak.We have cloned, sequenced and expressed the f1 and pla genes of Yersinia pestis which are immunoreactive. These are being used for developing a serological test for plague.

Iodine Dificiency Disorders
AIIMS has defined the effect of iodine deficiency on growth and development,specially the role of thyroxine in brain development in human fetuses.Laboratory and field studies done at AIIMS paved the way for the 'Universal Salt Iodisation Programme of the Government of India in 1986.Our Contributions to control of iodine deficiency extend to Bhutan,Nepal, Bangladesh,Maldives,Indonesia,Thailand and several countries of Africa and the middle east.

Titration Method
Titration method for estimation of iodine in salt.This simple is very important for ensuring the success of the universal salt

Laboratory and field studies done at AIIMS paved the way for the 'Universal Salt Iodisation Programme of the Government of India.

Anti-Fertility Vaccine
Much of the research that has been carried out in the last 25 years towards the development of an anti-human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) vaccine began with research initially carried out at AIIMS.

Morphometric Analysis
Morphometric analysis of immuno cytochemically stained endometrium and photomicrography inprogres in the Primate Implantation Biology Laboratory.

Post-Coital and Post-Ovulatory Contraception
Basic Research on the endocrine and paracrine mechanisms in embryo implantation of pregnancy and the development of post-coital and post-ovulatory contraceptives.Our Primate Implantation Biology Laboratory has been recognized as a non-US Centre for Contraceptive Research and Development Programme of the Andrew Mellon Foundation and is also one of the 13 such Centres in the world supported on a long-term basis by the Rockefeller Foundation.

Exploration Of Antarctica
AIIMS has been participating in India's efforts at exploration of Antarctica since 1990.Besides providing health care to members of the expedition,AIIMS has also been using the opportunity to conduct research on chronobiology of the human organism, physiological responses to the stress of the hostile antarctic environment, and performance under the harsh and lonely conditions prevailing in antarctica.

Dr. B.B Dikshit Library
The library, named after the first Director of the Institute, is a treasure house
having 61423 books, 53547 journals and 14008 reports in the field of Biomedical
Sciences.The library receives 490 journals and 80 newsletters every year.The
library is open to the readers from 8 a.m. to 2 a.m seven days a week. The
library has a computer facility, microfilm library reader and reader-printer facility
The rich and efficient is a potent force for energising our research activities.

Profile
AIIMS (All India Institute of Medical Sciences) was established in 1956 as an autonomous institution through an Act of Parliament. AIIMS was established with the objective of developing patterns of teaching in Undergraduate and Post-graduate Medical Education in all its branches so as to demonstrate a high standard of Medical Education in India.

All India Institute of Medical Sciences Delhi runs a number of undergraduate courses in medicine, nursing and related areas, and postgraduate courses in virtually all the basic and clinical medical specialities and superspecialites. A total of 42 disciplines are taught at AIIMS, New Delhi. Admissions to all the courses are made on the basis of entrance examinations conducted all over the country.

All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) is a medical college and hospital in Delhi, India.
AIIMS is considered one of the most prestigious medical colleges in India[1][1][2] and is globally recognized for providing low-cost medical care to a large number of patients.[3] It was established as an institution of national importance by an Act of Parliament with the objects to develop patterns of teaching in Undergraduate and Post-graduate Medical Education in all its branches so as to demonstrate a high standard of Medical Education in India; to bring together in one place educational facilities of the highest order for the training of personnel in all important branches of health activity; and to attain self-sufficiency in Post-graduate Medical Education.

Location And History
Location
Central lawn, with teaching block in the background
AIIMS is located in Ansari Nagar, an upscale locality of South Delhi. It is adjacent to the South Extension market, and lies on the Inner Ring Road. Across the road from AIIMS is Safdarjung hospital, a large facility which caters to Delhi's population as opposed to AIIMS, which is a referral centre. Adjacent to AIIMS lies the headquarters of ICMR (Indian Council of Medical Research), the body that coordinates and funds medical research in India. Beyond that is the National Medical Library, run by the Directorate-General of Health Services (DGHS) of the Government of India. It has a vast collection of scientific and medical journals that can be accessed by researchers. Farthest along the stretch is the NAMS house, the official building of the National Academy of Medical Sciences, which is a prestigious body of eminent doctors from across India.

History
The Foundation Stone at AIIMS commemorates the gift from New Zealand
Foundation stone at the Academic Building of AIIMS, placed by Queen Elizabeth II

AIIMS was inaugurated in 1956, and was built with a grant from the New Zealand Government. AIIMS was established in New Delhi after former Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru's intitial proposal to set up the institute in Calcutta was turned down by the then Chief Minister of West Bengal Dr Bidhan Chandra Roy.[4].It was the vision of Rajkumari Amrit Kaur, the first Health Minister of India, to establish an institute of such nature in India. She envisioned an autonomous medical institute where students, doctors and teachers would live and learn side by side, with freedom to experiment with teaching and curriculum.

Ranking
AIIMS has been consistently ranked the top medical college in India to pursue an MBBS degree by India Today in annual surveys starting in 1997.[1][1][2] AIIMS has held the top slot for the last six years in a row, and has been ranked first for 11 out of the 12 years that India Today has conducted the survey.

AIIMS' excellence has to do with several factors - small class size (50 per year), excellent library facilities, liberal clinically oriented teaching, research exposure and the ability to set its own curriculum.

Several surveys by The Week and Outlook magazines have named AIIMS the best hospital in India overall, as well as the best in several individual fields such as Cardiology, Neurology, Gastroenterology, Gynaecology and Ophthalmology, ahead of several specialised institutions.[6][7]

The hospital has been able to maintain high standards of quality while seeing large numbers of patients (3.5 million in 2006) at very low cost to patients (10 Indian Rupees for outpatient doctor consultation equivalent to approx US $0.25), many of whom live in extreme poverty.[8]

Admissions
Undergraduate course
Every year AIIMS accepts 45 Indian students, of which 33 belong to General Category and 11 belong to the reserved category (SC/ST) and 1 orthopedic physically handicapped, based on the results of an all-India entrance examination for its undergraduate M.B.B.S program. The number of students who take the entrance exam every year varies from 70,000 to 80,000. The acceptance rate for admission to the undergrad course (medical school) is thus 45/75000 i.e 0.06%. This makes the AIIMS entrance exam, conducted on 1st of June every year, one of India's most difficult.

Five international students (nominated by Government of India from SAARC nations) complete the class size of 50. AIIMS also specializes in paramedical and basic science training for its undergrads. AIIMS is one of the few institutions where the faculty-student ratio is actually the reverse of the norm, i.e there are more faculty members than students. PG Cert. in Sociology

Post-graduate courses
There are about forty-two speciality post-graduate courses conducted at AIIMS. The entry is through a nationwide competitive examination held every six months. Each year more than seven thousand medical graduates across the country compete for the limited number of positions, approximately 2% of the candidates are admitted through the process- making it one of the most difficult tests. These courses are highly coveted by the medical graduates across the country because of the institution's excellent medical services, exposure to unusual and referred cases and excellent opportunities for research.

Integrating clinics and research
AIIMS was originally built as a Superspeciality tertiary care (refers to India's three-tier health system with Primary clinics, which refer cases to secondary district level hospitals, which in turn refer cases to regional tertiary hospitals) centre with primary emphasis on research and specialized training facilities. MBBS is the basic medical course, the same as medical school. This is followed by specialization, which is the term for postgrad training in General Surgery, General Internal Medicine, Pediatrics and other fields. Superspecialities are those healthcare fields whose practitioners need specialised certification after completing their postgraduations, examples being cardiothoracic and vascular surgery, rheumatology, Neurology, Pediatric Neurology etc.There are at least 45 superspecialities at AIIMS. Having clinical superspecialities in the same campus as its major research facilities makes AIIMS optimally suited for nurturing best quality translational research, which can translate into clinically useful end products, in India. 1234 AIIMS publishes the National Medical Journal of India, among India's most prestigious clinical journals.[9][10] Its impact factor is the highest among Indian journals after the Indian journal of Medical Research (published by the Indian Council of Medical Research).

Medical services
As per the AIIMS Citizen's Charter,[11] doctors & staff at AIIMS strive to provide comprehensive, high quality tertiary care services including specialty and super-specialty services to all without consideration of caste, creed, religion, sex, economic status or disability. However, there may be some deficiencies due to extreme patient load and finite resources. Acquiring newer equipment for investigation, research and patient care is expedited as it is not constrained by funds.

All-India Institute of Medical Sciences was established as an institution of national importance by an Act of Parliament with the objects to develop patterns of teaching in Undergraduate and Post-graduate Medical Education in all its branches so as to demonstrate a high standard of Medical Education in India; to bring together in one place educational facilities of the highest order for the training of personnel in all important branches of health activity; and to attain self-sufficiency in Post-graduate Medical Education.

AIIMS also runs a College of Nursing and trains students for B.Sc.(Hons.) Nursing post-certificate) degrees.

RTI allows student to access AIIMS Test Papers
The ruling means that students appearing for other competitive exams like IIT JEE and CAT would be allowed to take question papers home

In the first ruling of its kind, the Delhi High Court dismissed a petition by the All-India Institute of Medical Sciences against an order by the Central Information Commission directing it to disclose the correct set of answers for its question papers.

Vikrant Bhuria the Right to Information (RTI) applicant had requested access to certified copies of question papers and of correct answers of the entrance examination for MCH entrance exams for 555-5555 academic session.

AIIMS had opposed the request saying that disclosure of the question papers was not possible as the papers were the institute's intellectual property and that the larger public interest did not warrant their disclosure.

Dismissing AIIMS' plea, Justice S. Muralidhar said: 'Under Section 8(1) (d) of the Act, what is exempted is only such information which constitutes intellectual property, and when disclosed would harm the competitive position of a third party, but the petitioner has not been able to show how the disclosure of the entrance exam question papers to the respondent would adversely affect the competitive position of any third party. Section 8(1) (d) RTI Act is not attracted at all.'

The ruling could have a serious impact on other competitive exams like IIT JEE and CAT as well, and students would be allowed to take question papers home.

Media coverage of All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi Delhi, Delhi

With Rs 1,100 crore, AIIMS bags highest budget share

With Rs 1,124 crore, the prestigious All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in the national capital tops the list of hospitals and research institutes with the maximum budgetary allocation.

Indias health allocation has been hiked by 14 per cent with Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee announcing Rs 30,702 crore for the sector with special focus on cheaper life saving drugs and better health facilities for the rural and urban poor.

Of the medical institutes, AIIMS got a major chunk, up from last fiscals Rs 1,022 crore.

The Delhi-based institute is among the top 10 medical colleges in the world, catering to almost 8,000 patients, mostly from the underprivileged section, every day. It has over 2,200 beds.

Safdarjung Hospital, in the heart of Delhi, was allocated Rs.467 crore, up from Rs.345 crore.

The Delhi-based Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital will get Rs 322 crore as compared to Rs 283 crore in the last fiscal. The Lady Hardinge Medical College has been allocated Rs 223 crore as against Rs 194 crore in the previous year.

The Post-Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) in Chandigarh has been allotted Rs 546 crore as against Rs 470 crore.

The Kalawati Saran hospital in the national capital, which caters specifically to children, has got Rs 61 crore as against Rs 56 crore last year.

The government also allocated a huge chunk of the health budget on setting up the eight AIIMS-like institutes in the country.

A total of Rs 1,544.21 crore has been earmarked for setting up the super speciality medical centres as compared to Rs.1,616 crore last year.

The institutes on the lines of AIIMS are being constructed under the Pradhan Mantri Swasthya Suraksha Yojana. These institutes will be established in two phases. In the first phase, six such centres will be established in Patna (Bihar), Raipur (Chhattisgarh), Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh), Bhubaneswar (Odisha), Jodhpur (Rajasthan) and Rishikesh (Uttarakhand).

In the second phase, two such institutes will come up in Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal.

The aim behind setting up these institutes was to correct the regional imbalance in the availability of affordable and reliable healthcare services to the rural and poor populace.

Each hospital will have 960 beds and will provide undergraduate medical education to 100 students per year. Postgraduate and postdoctoral courses will also be offered.

AIIMS students ask director to resign

A day after a first-year MBBS student was found hanging in his hostel room at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), undergraduate students boycotting classes and other training programmes and sat outside the directors office all day. A 2010 batch student, Anil Kumar Meena, 22, from Baran district in Rajasthan failed to pass all three subjects in the first year. His attendance was also short, because of which the administration asked him to repeat a year.

Depressed over failing, the young medical aspirant ended his life in the wee hours on Sunday. While Meena was depressed because of his inability to cope, he did not suffer from psychiatric problems.Angry undergraduate students held director RC Dekas responsible for the suicide, and demanded his resignation.

Anil would not have taken this step if the administration had given him a hearing. He tried to meet the director thrice to talk about the change in rules — the weightage of internal tests have been increased from 25 to 50% in the supplementary exam. But the director did not meet him, said a student, who did not want to be identified.

The administration is not responsive to the needs of new students. If there was a little more communication between the administration and student bodies, many student issues could be resolved, said another student, unwilling to be named.
The resident doctors association did not boycott duties but came out in full support of striking students. The MBBS course at AIIMS has been a model course for other medical institutes. The good points of this prestigious college should be handed down to others and not the ills, said Dr Sudipto Ranjan Singh, president, RDA at AIIMS.

The death of two students in consecutive years shows the failure of the motto behind running the MBBS course. Dr Deka should accept moral responsibility and step down, he demanded. Students from Jawaharlal Nehru University also joined the protest, which continued till late in the night.Meanwhile, the administration announced an ex-gratia token amount of R3 lakh to the family of the deceased. An autopsy conducted at AIIMS confirmed hanging as the cause.
Family unaware of his depression The family of Anil Kumar Meena said that they suspected that the academic administrations lack of cooperation with Anil in his studies were the reason behind his failure in the first-year MBBS examination.

Anil was a native of Peepliya Chowki village in Chipabarod town of Baran district and was selected in Aiims, New Delhi in the year 2010, after scoring 2nd All India Rank in Scheduled Tribe category in AIPMT (All India Pre-Medical Test.
His father, Surajmal Meena, said that he was unaware that Anil was stressed about his studies as he never talked about it with him. After his suicide, however, he said that he learnt from Anils friends and classmates that he had made attempts to meet the academic management of Aiims to address his study-related problems but no one gave him time. This led to his depression.

When asked whether he would lodge a complaint against Aiims management, Surajmal said he would discuss the matter with his family.

Two arrested in AIIMS question paper leak case

Delhi Police on Friday arrested two doctors in connection with their alleged role in the recent leaking of the post graduate medical entrance papers of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).

Shahi Balender Bakshi and Vimal Dangi, who appeared in the entrance exam, were arrested by the police. The two doctors are believed to be part of a well-organised racket involved in leaking question papers of entrance examinations of leading institutions.

Earlier this week, police arrested five persons for allegedly leaking post graduate medical entrance papers and helping some candidates by providing answers over mobile phone and blue tooth.

The gang, which charged Rs 25-35 lakh from aspirants, allegedly used a sophisticated software to email images of the question paper taken by two MBAs, posing as PG aspirants, using mobile phones and blue tooth concealed in their shirts.

It all started with the arrest of Mohit Chaudhury (23), a second year MBBS student in an Ujjain medical college whom police claim is the mastermind, from Pragati Maidan on Thursday.

The other arrested were Dr Amit Puniya (23), who was appearing for the entrance test, two MBAs Kapil Kumar (27) and Krishan Pratap Singh (27) and Bhishma Singh (27), a graduate who allegedly helped the gang in using computers.

AIIMS surgeon blames changing lifestyle for bone ailments

Bhopal: Changing lifestyle, especially consuming fast food, is resulting in weakening of bones of people, a senior orthopedic surgeon associated with AIIMS has claimed.Because of eating pizza and burgers, bones become weak resulting in people suffering fractures even after suffering minor injuries, All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) Orthopedic Department Head, Dr Prakash P Kotkal said here yesterday while addressing a three-day long conference organised by the Madhya Pradesh Chapter of Indian Orthopedic Association.Kotwal said he has found this deficiency in as many as 35 per cent patients visiting him for treatment as the density of bones get reduced due to changing lifestyle.Addressing the conference, Mumbai-based Dr Ram Prabhu informed that now it has become easier to fill the gaps created by fracture of bones as it can be cured by taking away bones from the other body parts.Prabhu also informed that like blood banks, five bone banks are also being operated in the country and there is a plan to expand their network.Earlier, inaugurating the conference, Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Uma Shankar Gupta highlighted the shortage of doctors in rural areas and urged the association to convince its members to serve in small towns and villages.

A large number of orthopedic surgeons, including Bhopals Gandhi Medical College Dean Dr Nirbhay Shrivastava were present on the occasion.

AIIMS approaches police against Arunimas relative

New Delhi: Doctors at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) late Friday approached the police after a verbal duel between hospital staff and a relative of national-level volleyball player Arunima Sinha, whose leg was amputated after she was pushed out of a running train last week.

The AIIMS called the Safdarjung police station, after which the matter was settled, but no formal complaint was registered.Her brother-in-law came with a large group of people, saying they want to meet Arunima. The guard tried to tell them that nobody is allowed to meet her as she underwent surgery sometime back. But he did not listen to him and started shouting, AIIMS Trauma Centre head M.C. Misra said.

After that, the hospital dialed the police control room number and a team reached the trauma centre in south Delhi.The matter was finally settled. The problem is that every day this man comes with large number of politicians. There is a strict restriction on people allowed to meet Arunima as it could spread infection, he said.Delhi Police also confirmed that they received a complaint and the matter was settled.

Arunima underwent surgery Friday. Doctors applied a vacuum cleaning device to drain infectious tissue from the amputated leg.The procedure will help in healing of the leg and she is doing fine, Misra added.Doctors said that psychological counselling is also helping Arunima and two more operations - one on the amputated leg and the other to fix the broken bones of her second leg - will be done next week.Arunima was pushed out of the general compartment of the Padmawati Express near Bareilly in Uttar Pradesh April 11 while resisting a chain-snatching attempt by some hoodlums as she was travelling from Lucknow to Delhi.

She was brought to the AIIMS Trauma Centre Monday night (April 18) after a serious infection was noticed in the amputated leg, for which she underwent a second round of surgery at Lucknows prestigious King George Medical College -- now upgraded to the Chhatrapati Shahuji Maharaj Medical University.

More over, work at main hospital building, medical college building and the TB sanatorium is also going on in full swing.Meanwhile, Centre has allocated the second lot of grant of whopping Rs 150 crore to as part of the construction budget. This is the second lot after an initial grant of Rs 70 crore was allotted to the state government last year.


How AIIMS, JNU keep out deserving OBC students

Two premier higher education institutes, the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) and Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), have been accused of discriminating against students from the Other Backward Classes (OBC) category during admissions. Kailash Mundhe, an OBC candidate,scored higher in this years entrance test, than the lowest scoring candidate in the general category admitted to AIIMSs postgraduate course in dental surgery.
He got 91.48 per cent, while the lowest scorer had 91.1 per cent. Yet Mundhe was denied admission. How was this possible? It was because the AIIMS authorities have interpreted the governments reservation policy to mean OBC students can be allotted only those seats reserved for them.

Given the extremely limited number of seats at AIIMS, there was only one seat in the postgraduate dental surgery course that was set apart for OBCs. Another OBC candidate, whose marks were even higher than Mundhes, got the sole seat.
My percentage is higher than the last candidate selected in the general category, Mundhe has complained in a letter to AIIMS director R. C. Deka. I have not been allowed to opt for admission under the general category. Deka was not available for comment.

Though this contravenes a Supreme Court judgment which says quotas in educational institutions are aimed at ensuring minimum opportunities for members of deprived communities, and that reserved category students should be eligible for general category seats if their marks qualify them to do so, AIIMS continues to bar reserved category students — be they OBCs, scheduled castes (SCs) or scheduled tribes (STs) — from general seats in postgraduate courses.
A Prime Minister-appointed panel headed by UGC Chairman S.K. Thorat had criticised AIIMS for this practice in 2007, but the institution has persisted with it.

Similarly, in end August, the Delhi High Court ruled against JNU for linking OBC admissions to the cut-offs for general category students.The university has a rule by which the difference between the qualifying marks of candidates admitted to seats reserved for OBCs, and that of the lowest scoring general category candidate should not be more than 10 per cent.

Thus if the cut off mark for general candidates is 65 per cent, no OBC candidate who has scored less than 55 per cent will be admitted, even if quota seats go vacant.
Against a quota of 27 per cent seats for OBCs, JNU has admitted only 15.9 per cent. It is set to contest the high court decision in Supreme Court.

AIIMS reconstitutes administrative body

The All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) has reconstituted the Institute Body (IB), the highest
administrative decision-making body in the hospital. The 17-member committee was reconstituted in a high level meeting on Tuesday. Union Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad, in his capacity as president of AIIMS, is president of the Institute Body as well, which has retained Leader of the opposition Sushma Swaraj, Congress MP from Nagpur Jyoti Mirdha, Rajya Sabha membe, R.K. Dhawan and Delhi University Vice-Chancellor Deepak Pental, among members from the
previous body.

The new names in the body are Director General of Health Services RK Srivastava, AIIMS Director R.C. Deka, Additional Secretary and Financial Advisor, Ministry of Health, Naved Masood, Secretary Higher Education, Vibha Puri Das, Health Secretary, Dr Sujatha Rao, general president Indian Science Congress, Dr KC Pandey, Secretary department of bio-technology, Dr MK Bhan, secretary general Indian Red Cross, Dr SP Agarwal, Director PGIMER Chandigarh, Dr KK Talwar, Director Tata Memorial hospital, Dr RA Badwe, Vice-chairman Asian Heart Institute, Dr Ramakant Panda and Director Sher-e-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences, Dr Abdul Hameed Zargar. The institute body is constituted for a span of five years. Most of the members in the institute are apolitical persons connected in some way with the medical profession.

AIIMS entrance test to go online

Entrance exams to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) will soon go the Common Admission Test (CAT) way — online — by 2012. AIIMS administration wants to conduct its entrance exams for undergraduate, PG and other courses, online, on the lines of the Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) to ensure total transparency.
The other online model being considered is from Manipal Medical College.

The institutes examination department is studying various online entrance examination models to ensure no glitches occur when around 1 lakh students appear for the MBBS and MD entrance exams in 182 centres across India.
In all, AIIMS conducts 14 entrance examinations in a year, including biotechnology, M Sc programmes, nursing.
We cannot afford problems, such as the system crashing while the exam is on. Conducting an entrance examination of this magnitude requires sound technical support and we are analysing all problems we can possibly face, said a doctor unwilling to be quoted.

If things go according to plan, the institute will start online examinations with its post-MD course admissions next year. There are about 50 seats for speciality courses after post-graduation, for which 2,000 students appear every year in Delhi. Well go online with these entrance tests, as their number is small and well get to take care of technical glitches, if any, before we take the plunge with UG and PG courses, said a senior doctor in the administration department, who did not wish to be named.

According to the initial plan, the examination department will zero in on various cities across states to be centres for the online examination. The examination department is also in the process of securing a question bank for the examination. There will be no scope for ambiguous questions and well have to ensure no questions are repeated, he said.
The AIIMS examination department hopes to fully start the system by 2012.
For the first time this year, the Institute is uploading admit cards online; students can take a printout of the same.

AIIMS provides training to nurses in trauma care

After doctors, it is the turn of nurses to get trained in advanced trauma care. In a first-of-its-kind initiative in the country, New Delhis All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) Trauma Centre has roped in foreign faculty specialising in advanced trauma care to train their nurses so as to provide concrete back-up to specialist doctors in case of accident-related emergencies.

The course, titled Advanced Trauma Care for Nurses (ATCN), is certified by American College of Surgeons (ACS), which also has a copyright on Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) course that AIIMS trauma centre has been running successfully for more than a year. Road traffic accident is one of the primary killers in modern times. Whether we are able to save a life depends usually on how well we handle a patient during the initial hour. If our nurses also are adequately trained to handle accident cases, a lot of crucial time can be saved, said Dr M C Misra, chief AIIMS Trauma Centre.
The United States has been running this course for nurses in its various medical since 1985, and the American faculty have had been imparting training in ATCN at 12 other countries in the world for more than a decade.
The course is run in two stages-provider course and instructor course. Provider course is for two-and-a-half days for every nurse.

Candidates are selected for a two-day instructor course from among those who successfully complete stage one. Those chosen for the instructor course can further pass on the skills to others after clearing the requisite examination.
A team of three foreign specialists started the course with the first batch of 16 nurses at Trauma Centre on March 11, and nine of them chosen for the instructor course will complete the training on Wednesday.

This course helps nurses think independently. They wont necessarily have to wait for instructions, rather can assess patient condition by themselves. This way physicians will have a solid support team and accident cases will be managed systematically, said Richard Henn, ATCN international chair, society of trauma nurses.

Lifted? AIIMS prof removes article from medical journal

A professor from the department of laboratory medicine at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) here had to retract his article after major portions of his work were found lifted from a 2004 review article by a UK scientist. The review article, Genetic Diversity in Hepatitis C Virus (HCV), published in Reviews in Medical Virology in 2009 by additional professor Muhammad Irshad had to be withdrawn from the web journal in December 2009.

The journal editor had found at least 20 over laps including figures from another review article titled Genetic Diversity and Evolution of Hepatitis C virus - 15 years on published in Journal of General Virology in 2004 by Professor Peter Simmonds, who is with the University of Edinburgh since March 2001.It (duplication) wasnt done intentionally and importantly the review article has been retracted from the journal, said Dr Irshad.
I think the problem arose because there are no defined guidelines on writing review articles. The student assisting me probably overlooked the requirements.

AIIMS director Dr RC Deka said, I have no idea about this duplication. No one in the institute has brought it to my notice. Proving plagiarism is an arduous task and several committees have to be set to examine the veracity of the claims. If the charges are proven, appropriate action will be taken.
Dean Dr Rani Kumar also claimed she wasnt aware of the controversy.

We cant take action unless there is a formal complaint from the original author. And so far, we have not received any.
It is indeed shameful, if this has truly happened. It brings a bad name to the institute and to the small section of people who are doing good work, she said.Dr Pushpa Bhargava, former president of Society of Scientific Values, an independent body of scientists acting as a watchdog of Indian scientific community, said, The biggest problem is there are no laws or any directive from the government to deal with scientific misconduct in academia in India.
In more than 90 per cent cases of plagiarism, the culprit goes scot-free.
Dr Bhargava said, Given the ethos of science, the institute has every reason to take action on the person found guilty of plagiarism.

In October 2007, six professors at AIIMS were in the dock for publishing the same research material in two different medical journals, which also amounts to academic fraud. But no action was taken.

AIIMS to offer MD in emergency med

Doctors can now get accredited to teach emergency-care medicine at the post-graduate level after an online exam. The All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) has tied up with the University of South Florida to design an online exam that doctors need to qualify to teach emergency medicine in medical colleges across the country.

This specialised branch of medicine will be introduced for the first time in the country at the post-graduate level from 2010 academic session.

AIIMS will be among the first to start a full-fledged post graduation course in emergency medicine — a specialty Medical Council of India (MCI) recognised as recently as July 22, 2009 as a distinct entity.

The standing finance committee of the institute has already passed the resolution, and from the next academic session, three seats will be allocated for MD residency in emergency medicine. Like for other branches, the institutes entrance exam at the all India level will be the qualifying exam for emergency medicine as well.

Apart from AIIMS, Christian Medical College, Vellore, and Guwahati Medical College, have applied for a separate department in emergency medicine.

Emergency medicine is yet to receive its due as a distinct entity in India, unlike in the US and UK, where it is an integral part of the acute trauma care procedure, said Dr M C Misra, chief, AIIMS trauma centre.

Jaya Shroff Bhalla/ Peeyush Khandelwal, Hindustan Times

Even as All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) categorically denied any paper leak of the MBBS entrance exam, Ghaziabad police have arrested a lecturer employed with the institute in connection with the same. According to Ghaziabad police that is investigating the matter, Meena Aggarwal, a lecturer at the nursing college at AIIMS, could be one of the links in a long chain of people involved in a racket of exchanging examination papers for money.
Her involvement poses serious questions as she is an employee of the AIIMS. She says that the question papers are guess papers but we are investigating further as the complainants have levied charges that lakhs of rupees were demanded for admission in AIIMS under different quotas, said Inspector Yogesh Pathak.

Aggarwal denied allegations and told, I have been framed in this entire episode. A woman named Naima Chaudhary came to my house looking for accommodation a week ago. She later brought two students with her, who, she said, she would coach.
I only run a hostel accommodation for students at my residence and am not a party to paper leak. Police should arrest Chaudhary who is the culprit.

Senior administration at AIIMS was, however, caught off guard on Monday morning when they discovered news of AIIMS MBBS entrance examinations paper leak.

This was almost 12 hours after Ghaziabad police got into action after receiving an anonymous call as a tip-off.
Paper leak is a sensitive matter and of grave concern. We have been conducting exams for 25 years and paper-leaking reports have never come to us via media. It is shocking, said a senior official in the examination committee at AIIMS.
Even as AIIMS went ahead with the entrance exam, taken by over 45, 000 aspirants across India, a team of examination experts sat with the Ghaziabad police to verify the original and the confiscated examination paper.
There was a 100 per cent mismatch in questions. AIIMS team of experts sat with Ghaziabad police and checked the papers line by line. There is absolutely no questions of leak, said Dr Y.K. Gupta, AIIMS spokesperson.
Aggarwal was allegedly caught with two sets of a question papers and two AIIMS hopefuls at her residence in Kavinagar on Sunday.

Senior Superintendent of Police Akhil Kumar said more people were being interrogated in the matter and more arrests were likely.
Prima Facie it appears that these people operated a gang and cheated people in the name of getting admissions into AIIMS, said Kumar.
The gang had also floated an advertisement in newspaper, where they guaranteed 100 per cent success in examination. We are trying to locate the advertisement.
According to the police, the lecturer was not running an institute.

Dr Ramesh Ch Deka new chief of AIIMS

NEW DELHI, March 10 – Ending months of uncertainty, Dr Ramesh Chandra Deka was formally appointed as the new director of the countrys prestigious All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS). Profusely thanking the people of Assam and Chief Minister, Tarun Gogoi, he said he would try and work out a mechanism to facilitate the huge number of patients, the institutions receives from the North-east. He formally took charge after he received his official orders from the Union Health and Family Welfare Ministry.

Appointment of new director ran into controversy and saw hectic lobbying by all the candidates. Though a panel of three names were referred to the Cabinet Committee of Appointments, Dr Dekas name was short-listed and pending clearances for over six months. A vigilance inquiry against him for allegedly not following rule during purchase of cochlear implants, reportedly stalled his appointment.

Despite being cleared by the vigilance department, the Prime Ministers Office took no chance and held up the appointment. Meanwhile, the Chief Minister and MPs hailing from the Region petitioned the Prime Minister to announce his appointment.
