HYDERABAD: MBBS students studying in government medical colleges in Hyderabad and other districts have long been facing the problem of commuting to other hospitals to attend classes as college buses were either defunct or breakdown on roads. More than three decades old problem has came an end on Monday after 30 buses were launched by health minister C Laxma Reddy.
Two buses each were given to six Telangana government medical colleges. Besides this, to pursue Social and Preventive Medicine, one van each was allotted to the colleges.
“Send students to villages regularly and create awareness on preventive medicine,” Laxma Reddy said after launching the buses.
Director of Medical Education, Dr M Ramani said that she has been trying to get the buses from the time she served as principal of Osmania Medical College and medical colleges finally got the vehicles.
The official said that besides the buses and vans, another van was alloted to Government Dental College. This dental van can be used to organise camps in rural and other places.
