What is AIIMS

The All India Institutes of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) is a group of public medical colleges that have been declared as institutes of mational importance. AIIMS New Delhi, the parent institute, was established under the All India Institute of Medical Sciences Act, 1956, as a “temple of modern India” to achieve Prime Minister Nehru’s vision of having a centre of excellence in medical sciences in India.
 
Today, it is among the top medical colleges in India. The institute has comprehensive facilities for teaching, research and patient care. It conducts teaching programmes in medical and para-medical courses both at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels and awards its own degrees. AIIMS also runs a college of nursing and trains students for BSc (Hons) Nursing post-certificate degrees. As of now, AIIMS offers admission to 807 seats, which is available across nine functional institutions — New Delhi, Rishikesh, Bhopal, Bhubaneswar, Jodhpur, Patna, Raipur, Guntur, and Nagpur. The government has announced the establishment of 12 more AIIMS institutes which are likely to come up in the coming years. In 2018 and 2019, AIIMS New Delhi topped in the medical category in the National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF 2019).
