The Prime Minister of the UK, Boris Johnson, who was on a two day-visit to India, announced £ 1 billion of new commercial deals, which also captures New Delhi-based Ujala Cygnus Healthcare Group £6.9 million deal to train Indian doctors in acute medicine.

An advanced Post Graduate Program in Primary Care and Acute Medicine has been designed by Ujala Cygnus Healthcare Group in collaboration with BAPIO (British Association of Physicians of Indian Origin) Training Academy to expand India’s medical capacity in the backdrop of the coronavirus pandemic and rising burden of non-communicable diseases (NCDs).

The Indo-UK Training Programme in Acute Medicine has been designed to upskill Indian MBBS doctors seeking higher qualifications and training and an aspiring career in Medicine in India. A group of interested doctors will be recruited for this programme and will be enrolled in MSc in Acute Medicine which will provide them with knowledge, hands-on clinical training and bedside medicine by local faculty and topped up virtually by UK-based faculty.

The medical aspirants will also get a chance to visit all the NHS Hospitals in the country for six weeks to have a first-hand experience of the best practises in these healthcare centres so that they can learn and implement those teaching in the Indian hospitals, where 20 doctors will be selected to work eventually.
