Karnataka will soon get an All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS) as part of a commitment to improve medical education. Dr. Mansukh Mandaviya, Union Minister for Health and Family Welfare, has given his approval for the establishment of an All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS) in Karnataka, which will considerably benefit the state's health and medical education sectors. This will be extremely beneficial to the state and will help to improve its health and medical education. In Bengaluru, the new institute would be located in Kyalasanahalli, near Hennur Main Road. The Karnataka government had originally proposed to the SFC the establishment of a medical college. The SFC, on the other hand, has requested that the government focus on NIMHANS' competence in PG training. The new 538-bed institute will open in three years at a total cost of 489 crores. Sudhakar requested that the Union government establish a distinct state-level university for nursing and allied health sciences, a PPP model for hospital administration, and a special curriculum and training for in-service doctors in hospital management in a letter to Union Minister. He also proposed prioritising domicile students in deemed institutions and expanding the GoI's help to all districts, regardless of whether they have a private medical college or not. Mandaviya's letter also mentions strict guidelines to ensure world-class food safety and standards, as well as flexibility in utilising the National Health Mission to address state- and region-specific health issues.
