Current Healthcare Scenario in India

Shortage of Doctors in Rural Areas

Shortage of Nurses in Rural Areas

Shortage of Medical Colleges and Unaffordable Cost of Medical Education in India

Driven by unaffordable medical education

  • 7.5 years + additional 2-3 years for specialization
  • Extremely competitive entry, limited seats
  • The burden of education loans & financial obligations
  • Inconsistent quality of curriculum and teaching
  • Graduates pursue lucrative urban posts
  • Inequitable and unaffordable for poor & rural students

India still struggles with shortage of rural doctors

Although the number of health facilities in rural areas of India has increased during the past decade, convincing doctors to work in them remains a challenge.” - Dhinesh C Sharma Reports

“A middle-class family usually has to mortgage their home in order to make sure that their child is able to continue achieving his dream. This makes earning money one of the major priorities of a student passing out from private medical colleges.” - Dr Ranjith Ravella

“The market has been flooded with doctors so poorly trained they are little better than quacks.” - Sujatha Rao, Secretary, Ministry of Health & Family Welfare (2009 to 2010)

India's first free-of-cost Medical College, Sri Madhusudan Sai Institute for Medical Sciences & Research (SMSIMSR) was inaugurated by the Honorable Prime Minister of India Shri Narendra Modi ji, on 25th March 2023. This is the first-of-its-kind noble initiative in the country for meritorious students from weaker economic sections of rural India, who aspire to become doctors/nurses/healthcare professionals and serve in rural geographies. This initiative will transform the lives of both – the aspirants who cannot afford medical education and the rural communities suffering from a paucity of healthcare professionals and facilities, thus building a stronger, healthier, and more resilient rural population which is critical for rural growth and development.
