What is the use of this for common people...one more addition to the existing looters,who pile up the money ...

65% of seats given based on merit basis and 35 % on Management quota.
Still medical is costly all over the world so most of the doctors son and business man son will get those seats here instead of going to other states and foreign countries.

City will get back end jobs form students and staff by renting the homes ,shipment, medical device purchasing , tax to GOVT and finally some poor people will get medical facility in College Hospital.

Iam aware of quota percentage as well as cost involved ..by the way all the person whoever completed their studies even through merit will serve in corporate and chain of hospitals with hefty pay and even in overseas only and won't serve in village or other backward areas which needs medical attention...Also the city won't get anything as mentioned by you,coz they will have in-house dwelling facility as well as all the equipment's are purchased only through tender and not in open market

Never heard a new medical college [after all the looting blah blah - not sure what we have done to stop that] wouldn't bring anything to the local community - it will at least employ 500+ local people in end jobs, tax to civic body, if you are frustrated with the system, so are everyone, but some of the benefits to the society is what is important.

In my point of view all doctors wont get foreign chance and definitely local people around 300 members will get jobs.

New branch of CMCH to come up at Peelamedu

New branch of CMCH to come up at Peelamedu
^^^^



COIMBATORE: The Coimbatore Medical College Hospital may have another branch at Peelamedu in a couple of years. The new branch, which will function out of the Coimbatore Medical College premises, will primarily be meant for teaching purpose for under-graduate students.

The hospital is likely to have 500 beds spread across all clinical departments, but with a focus on outpatients, trauma care and basic surgeries.

The public works department and CMCH have come up with a first draft blueprint plan of the proposed hospital. They plan for it to have four storeys, including ground plus three floors.

“The idea is to avoid our MBBS students from travelling all the way to our campus on Trichy Road to attend their clinical classes,” CMCH dean Dr B Asokan said. “The initial curriculum saw clinical classes only starting from third year and we have only 150 students. But with us planning to increase our intake to 250 students and early clinical exposure being introduced from first year itself, it means 1,250 MBBS students alone travelling from Peelamedu to Trichy Road to attend some classes.”

The hospital is also under pressure from the Medical Council of India to have an ‘unitary campus’, where the college and hospital is under one roof. The project was proposed by local administration minister S P Velumani and recommended to the health minister who accepted the decision, sources said.

“The board of governors believe that students should not have to waste time and effort on travelling daily. So, we have been advocating for a single campus,” Dr Asokan said.

The new branch is also likely to come as relief to residents living in and around SITRA, Cheranmanagar, Peelamedu, Neelambur and Arasur who now may not have to travel all the way to Trichy Road for treatment. In fact, for many patients who come from Erode and Tirupur to Coimbatore in one hour, it takes another 45 minutes to reach CMCH. “They will reach this new branch in short time and get treatment within the golden hour,” the dean said. The airport authorities have also offered to sponsor a trauma ward as part of their CSR activities.

The building will be built at an approximate cost of Rs 40 crore, where the funds will come from the central and state governments. “While the Centre will give 60%, the state will give 40% of the fund,” the dean said. “Since this hospital is to mainly benefit students, we will take the funds allotted for increasing the student strength which is Rs 1.2 crore per student or Rs 120 crore totally,” the dean said.

50 percent of All Surgeries Will Be Robot Assisted by 2025

LT Technology Services Limited, India's leading pure-play engineering services company, expects almost 50 per cent of all surgeries to be robot-assisted by 2025, as AI makes robots precise enough to facilitate complex surgeries.

LTTS organised an 'Experience Walk-through' as part of a Symposium on Advancement in Robot-assisted surgery to enable participants to get hands-on experience with cutting-edge products and solutions in the medical and medical equipment field.

The event was graced by prominent dignitaries and speakers in the field of robotics, clinical robotics, medicinehealthcare and medical equipment from IIT Madras, IIT Delhi, IISc Bangalore, PSG Institute of Medical Science and Research, Coimbatore, PSG College of Technology, Navtat Solutions and Simulated Surgical Systems.

The chief guest was University of Illinois President, Dr Timothy Killeen - a distinguished scientist in geophysics and space science, an experienced educator, and a member of the National Academy of Engineering.

The symposium was dedicated to discussing the possibilities and advancements in the field of Medical Robotics. Robotics is a state-of-the-art technology that offers superior vision, improved flexibility and great accuracy surpassing humans while performing complex tasks.

Robotic assistance in surgery, rehabilitation efforts and therapeutic practices have made humans realize the need for research and technological progress in the field.

Experts in the field including Professor Kesh Kesavadas, Director of Health Care Engineering Systems Center at University of Illinois and the inventor of RoSS Robotic Surgery Simulator, the world's first stand-alone training system for da Vinci surgical system, and Dr Ramalingam, Professor of Urology, PSG Institute of Medical Science and Research, Coimbatore, expect the percentage of robot-assisted surgeries to jump to 50 per cent by 2025 from around 10 per cent today.

"Technological disruption is transforming the development process across markets, promoting new levels of efficiency and creativity in the manufacture of healthcare products. It is also essential to connect with the leading lights of academia to further the cause of healthcare to all. LTTS is proud to be a part of the technological shift that is transforming the medical and healthcare landscape", said Abhishek Sinha, Chief Operating Officer and Member of the Board at LT Technology Services.

"Training surgeons to become proficient in the use of robots is a major challenge in India. Innovative low-cost training systems such as the Endo-Training kit and new VR/AR-based training simulators such as RoSS promises to address the needs of the fast-growing clinical robotic sector," said Professor Kesh Kesavadas of the University of Illinois.

A few products showcased at the symposium include:Robotic-Endo Training Kit: A compact, cost-effective surgical robot, for affordable and advanced laparoscopic and endoscopic surgical training, developed in association with KAIST, PSG and assisted by the Global InnovationTechnology Alliance (GITA)Chemistry Analyzer: A fully automated clinical chemistry analyzer, with intelligent multitasking software3-Part Cell Counter: India's first indigenously built and cost-effective blood cell counter, developed in association with Agappe Diagnostics LtdChest X-Ray: An AI-based image analysis and pneumonia detection solution to help radiologists identify the symptoms and detect the disease in its initial phaseProfessor Killeen and Professor Rohit Bhargava (Director, Cancer Center of Illinois) shared some deep insights into the ground breaking research they are working on.

Avinashi road already has numerous hospitals + Tirupur will be getting its own medical college. Area in between MTP road and Sathy road is the one which needs a GH. With better road and rail facility people from Tirupur can easily access the present GH .

CMC has land in Avinashi road that is the reason they are going for a GH there and writing a story and justifying a rationale behind it.

CMCH gets device to detect hearing loss in newborns

https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/coimbatore/cmch-gets-device-to-detect-hearing-loss-in-newborns/articleshowprint/74520068.cms

Coimbatore: Coimbatore Medical College and Hospital (CMCH) dean B Ashokan on Friday inaugurated an otoacoustic
emission (OAE) screening device to detect hearing loss in newborns.
The state government, along with the National Health Mission (NHM), had procured the handheld device for the District Early
Intervention Centre in the hospital at the cost of Rs 2.78 lakh.
All newborns and those admitted to the neonatal intensive care unit of CMCH will undergo the test, the dean said. “As many as
15,000 babies are expected to undergo screening every year,” he said.
The screening will be included as one of the delivery point screening tests and be done for all children free of cost, head of
paediatrics V Booma said. “Two to three infants in 1,000 are likely to have hearing impairments. Chances of hearing loss are
high in children whose parents have hearing problems or in those with metabolic disorders and jaundice.”
The test result will be available within two minutes. “Children who fail the test will have to undergo another test after a week. If
the result of the second test is also the same, then brainstem evoked response audiometry (Bera) test will be done,” Booma
added.
