AIIMS may help train Railway doctors

New Delhi, June 27 (PTI) Railways are exploring the possibility of forging ties with premier medical institute AIIMS to help its vast pool of doctors get specialised training.

The PSU behemoth is “in favour of exploiting opportunities which are mutually beneficial to each other,” a senior Railway official said.

He said several such issues were discussed when a team of doctors from AIIMS called on Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee here yesterday.

“Offering specialised training to doctors of Railway Health Services came up for discussion during the interaction.

At this point, it was decided to explore whether Railways can forge ties with AIIMS for specialised training for its doctors,” the official said.

The doctors on the other hand raised several issues which the minister assured to look into, he said.
