FAIMS urges well being ministry to not rechristen AIIMS Delhi

The College Affiliation of AIIMS has written to Union Well being Minister Mansukh Mandaviya expressing concern over the proposal of assigning a brand new identify to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences right here, contending it’ll result in a lack of the institute’s identification.

The College Affiliation of AIIMS (FAIMS) had lately sought the opinion of college members over the federal government’s proposal to offer new names to all of the 23 AII India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) throughout the nation.

The school members opposed the altering of the identify of AIIMS, Delhi, in accordance with the letter written by the FAIMS to the minister on Thursday.

The letter additional stated AIIMS, Delhi was created in 1956 with a trinity of mission for medical schooling, analysis and affected person care. “An identification is linked with the identify. If the identification is misplaced, institutional recognition is misplaced each throughout the nation and outdoors.” “That’s the reason well-known and established institutes have the identical names for hundreds of years — Oxford, Cambridge and Harvard universities,” the letter stated.

The FAIMS stated if the proposal is accepted, the esteemed medical institute will face an enormous lack of identification and demoralisation.

“Therefore, FAIMS requests you to please don’t take into account any proposal for altering the identify of AIIMS Delhi. This can assist to keep up the premier and mentor institute standing of AIIMS Delhi with respect to others within the nation,” the letter stated.

The FAIMS additionally sought an appointment to debate long-pending points associated to autonomy, in-campus lodging and administration reform (rotation of headship) at AIIMS, Delhi.

The well being ministry has drafted a proposal to offer particular names to all of the AIIMS, together with that in Delhi, primarily based on native or regional heroes of prominence, freedom fighters, historic occasions or monuments of the realm or their distinct geographical identification
