Delhi-AIIMS to develop startup policy for medical students

The AIIMS administration has chosen to implement a startup policy in order to encourage entrepreneurship among medical students. Officials claim that partnerships are being planned with organisations like the Indian Institutes of Technology, the Indian Institutes of Management, and the Indian School of Business (ISB) to increase access to intersectional learning as well as with businesses like McKinsey, the Boston Consulting Group, and Bain to expose students to the management field. At a meeting set for Sunday, the director of AIIMS is likely to see the institutes' representatives.
On February 25, ISB's regional manager for the north, Ketan Tewari, will host an informational session at AIIMS. According to organisers, "He will talk about the management sector, its scope and potential, as well as the programmes that ISB has to offer."
According to a senior faculty member, the programme would enable medical students to learn things that went beyond their regular coursework, patient care, and research. Students should have a foundational understanding of administration and finances in addition to treatment. The professor said that this would enhance the students' professional development and spare them any difficulties should they decide to run nursing homes in the future.
Another faculty member stated that "AIIMS has planned this strategy considering the changing times and circumstances." To increase collaboration between the institute and other organisations, AIIMS has planned to host an open house for representatives of the Indian Council of Medical Research, the science and technology department, the department of biotechnology, and its faculty. The open house will now take place every second Saturday starting the following month.
