The Karnataka State Government has decided to shift 119 MBBS students from Sambhram Institute of Medical Sciences to other medical colleges in the State after students complained of lack of facilities. The High Court too recently heard a case on the same. The State Govt. said that it is working out a plan to shift students to other colleges immediately.

Sambhram Institute of Medical Sciences has been barred by the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences Bangalore from taking any new MBBS admissions. In a meeting held with the Directorate of Medical Education (DME) and chaired by the Deputy Chief Minister and the Minister for Medical Education, it was decided to shift students to nearby colleges. This case has been taken into account seriously and arrangements are being made to shift students immediately. These students are in third year and are complaining of lack of facilities.

Recently, over hundred students of 2016-17 batch approached High Court seeking declaration of Sambhram Institute as ‘defunct institution’ and seeking relocation to other recognized medical colleges. They stated that the institution has lot of deficiencies in terms of infrastructure and almost zero inflow of patients. No classes are being conducted regularly due to shortage of faculty.

The High Court has come up with a set of directions to set right the mess. If the infrastructure is found to be deficient then the students will be transferred to Government medical colleges. The MCI and RGUHS will conduct a separate inspection to find out if the college has sufficient infrastructure to teach MBBS students.
