Surkhet, March 22: The National Academy of Medical Sciences (NAMS), BP Koirala Institute of Health Sciences (BPKIHS) and Karnali Institute of Health Sciences (KIHS) have signed the memorandum of understanding (MoU) to deepen their cooperation in the areas of medical education.

The agreement is aimed at producing specialist doctors and human resources in the health sector.

At the presence of Pro-Chancellor of all three academies Deputy Prime Minister and Health Minister Upendra Yadav, the Karnali Institute of Health Sciences signed the agreement with BPKIHS and NAMS while BPKIHS signed with Karnali Institute of Health Sciences and National Academy of Medical Sciences on Thursday.

Likewise, the NAMS signed the agreement with Karnali Institute of Health Sciences and BPKIHS, according to Vice-Chancellor of Karnali Institute of Health Sciences Dr Mangal Rawal.

With the agreement in effect, all three academies will exchange students and professors, Vice-Chancellor Dr Rawal added.

It is difficult to run academic programmes in the remote area compared to the cities but we have also run under graduate and post graduate programmes also at Karnali Institute of Health Sciences in Jumla like that of NAMS from Kathmandu and BPKIHS from Dharan, Dr Rawal stated. On the occasion, Health Minister Yadav said such cooperation will be fruitful in running the state-owned academic institutions effectively and develop mutual cooperation among themselves.

Minister Yadav also appreciated the contributions made by all three academic institutions in the areas of health education and health care services. #nepal
