All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) and IIT Kharagpur are exploring opportunities for unique joint initiatives in academics and research, including a super-speciality hospital. Senior professors of both the institutions are in discussion to take the initiatives forward.
The institutions are looking forward to strengthen ongoing activities through collaborative education programmes, research and collaboration for management and analysis of hospital data. IIT Kharagpur and AIIMS would also work towards encouraging more medical practitioners in the research domain.
According to professors of the two institutions, the collaborative initiatives would foster cross-migration of medical professionals to the research domain, and engineering researchers to work on outstanding clinical problems.
With the super-speciality hospital at IIT Kharagpur expected to be operational by the end of this year, AIIMS will also collaborate for data processing, analytics and management of medical data in addition to digitised medical consultation, human resource support and advisory role in procurements.
