Medicine has always been among one of the most sought-after professions in India. However, for many students in Gujarat, the dream of becoming a doctor and fulfill their aim of making a difference in one’s life is often faced by several impediments. High cut off marks, lack of seats, unavailability of medical equipment, out dated systems and poor infrastructure are to name a few challenges which are perhaps responsible for the difficult journey to have in present medical education and in medicine profession.
To join hands for this reformation as a noble cause, to cater to healthcare needs of a population and to nurture world class medical education and medicine practice in difficult rural and tribal interiors of Gujarat, the Government of Gujarat and Rudraksh Academy Private Limited (RAPL), Vadodara jointly venture to establish a new Self-Financed Dr. Kiran C. Patel Medical College & Research Institute (KMCRI), a Brownfield Medical College at New Civil Hospital Campus, Bharuch under Health Policy -2016 (Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of Gujarat) in the Public Private Partnership (PPP) model with Government of Gujarat.
Health Policy-2016 aims to bridge the wide gap between the Doctors-Patients ratio in the state of Gujarat by encouraging private players to join the medical education sector and thus to shoulder the responsibility of upgrading the existing District General Hospitals by establishing and attaching new self-financed (Brown Field) medical colleges to such hospitals.
