Medical Colleges


Hon'ble Chief Minister, Jharkhand laid foundation stones for three medical colleges at Palamu, Dumka and Hazaribag on 23 February, 2017. This is the first time after 45 years that foundation stone of any medical college has been laid in the region. The last medical college had come up in Dhanbad as Pataliputra Medical College and Hospital (PMCH) in 1971.

               Proposed Medical colleges at Palamu, Hazaribag and Dumka will have 100 admissions per year in each of the colleges and Hospitals proposed at the three places will have 500 Beds each. It is expected that after commissioning, the three projects will alleviate the alarming situation of Health Infrastructure of the State to a large extent.
