Mangaluru: A regional centre of Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences will be established in Mangaluru and the land for the purpose will be finalized within a week. This will make it convenient for the students of the 70 medical colleges spread across DK and Udupi districts.
The land for the construction of the centre had been identified at Maryhill and Kavoor almost 4 months back. Since, no decision regarding which was the most suitable site had been taken, the proposal remained pending at the DC office. Now, the decision is expected to be taken within a week under the leadership of MLA Dr Bharat Shetty. There is 1.3 acre land available at Kavooe and the district administration has come to the conclusion that the area is suitable for the purpose.
What are the benefits?
If Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences Regional Centre is established in Mangaluru, the medical students will no longer have to travel all the way to Bengaluru for any necessities related to the university. 70 medical colleges in DK and Udupi districts are affiliated to this university. The aim behind the establishing of the regional centre is to provide all the services related to medical and semi-medical courses, close by to students and their parents. The regional centres will include digital evaluation and training for professors as well.
If the students are facing any problem, they can submit a complaint at the regional centre. The health university has aimed to set up its centers at four locations in the state including Mangaluru, Belagavi, Davanagere and Kalaburagi of which, Kalaburagi will start functioning within three months. At Davanagere, along with the regional centre, an auditorium and a sub-centre will also be created. It is expected to start functioning soon. At Belagavi, it is yet to be started.
There is a plan to setup a sports complex of RGUHS in Mangaluru and 5 acres of land has been requested for the creation of the same at Mangaluru University campus. The process in this connection is ongoing, informed RGUHS senate member U T Iftikar.
