BHUBANESWAR: Booking an appointment with a doctor at the All India Institute of Medial Sciences (AIIMS) in Bhubaneswar is just one click away. AIIMS authorities have launched the online service enabling patients to fix an appointment with the doctors through the internet before coming to the hospitals.
Patients can book their appointments at ors.gov.in.
“Through this online facility, patients will not have to wait in queues anymore. Moreover, it will give patients an idea about the availability of a particular doctor,” said Dr Ashok Mohapatra, Director of Bhubaneswar AIIMS.
He said the facility would help the patients immensely coming from remote areas.
Besides, AIIMS authorities have also decided to start Post Graduation (PG) across eight departments with two seats in each.
From July 2016, PG courses will be started in Anatomy, Bio-Chemistry, Psychology, Pathology, Micro-Biology, Community Medicine and Pharmacology, among others.
“As per our new plans, we will be starting PG courses from July 2016. We are hopeful that the number of our faculty members will also increase in the next one month,” said Mohapatra.
On the other hand, with appointments of 90 more doctors, treatment will soon start at ten new departments, added sources.
