KOHIMA, Sept 1: The Nagaland Institute of Medical Sciences
and Research (NIMSR), the state’s first medical college, became

functional on Friday with the induction of the first batch of 100
students.
Speaking at the induction ceremony at its campus in Kohima’s
Phriebagie, chief secretary J Alam said that this not only marks
the beginning of an academic session but more importantly it is
the realisation of a long-cherished dream of the state to have a
medical college.
“It is a memorable moment for the whole state as we finally
have a medical college of our own. This is the start of a
transformative journey, and will shape the future of healthcare
in the state,” he said.
The medical college is the result of the collective aspiration of
everyone, he added.
Alam asked the 45-member faculty of the institute to
contribute to building an institution of excellence.
He also asked the students to work diligently, stressing their
future role in impacting countless lives and reducing healthcare
disparities.
Alam said the government will provide all kinds of support in
developing the institute to be among the best in the country.
NIMSR dean-cum-director Dr Soumya Chakraborty said the first
batch has 100 MBBS students — 85 from Nagaland and 15 from
other parts of the country.

Welcoming the students, principal director of health and family
welfare Ritu Thurr said that success is not something that one
sees by accidents but it takes lots of preparation, self-discipline
and sacrifice.
“There is no substitute for hard work. The harder you work, the
luckier you get,” she said. (PTI)
