AIIMS Bhpoal: Lacks basic facilities
1. Five years after the first batch of students was admitted, Bhopal’s AIIMS is yet to get a licence to open a blood bank. Without a blood bank, the emergency department cannot be operational. Other crucial departments like surgery and gynaecology are not functional either. All of which, students say, has affected their learning.
2. From the third year on, students are supposed to spend the first half of their day in hospital, learning practical skills, and attending lectures during the second half. Not a single one of students has learnt these practical skills or assisted in surgery. They have only observed surgeries in other hospitals.
