LUCKNOW: Dr. Devi Prasad Shetty, a well-known cardiac surgeon and Padma Bhushan winner, said that big hospitals in the state should have teaching facilities to improve health care facilities.In the next four years, I anticipate a major shift in Uttar Pradesh's healthcare delivery model.If all hospitals, especially government ones with 100 or more beds, offer two-year diploma courses for MBBS pass-outs, it would create a workforce of professionals who can work in tier II and III cities or rural areas, he said in a speech to students, faculty members and government officials at RMLIMS foundation day on Friday.Despite having a population more than four times higher than his native state Karnataka, which is on the 8th place with a maternal mortality rate of 83 per lakh, Maharashtra is on second place (38 per lakh) and is on the way to first place.

This college trains 19,854 diploma specialists, including anesthetists, pediatricians, gynecologists, and radiologists, who often do not get jobs in Mumbai and live in remote locations.MMR is therefore less prevalent in India, according to Shetty.Because most people do not have access to the facility, 32.6% of all deaths worldwide are caused by surgery, according to him.More doctors, nurses, and paramedics are needed in this industry worth about Rs 10 trillion.

This will fill the void of skilled workers.Shetty said that the National Medical Commission (NMC) would simply monitor them by monitoring the number of surgeries performed here.
