  • BrainGain Magazine Launches Vertical On Medicine

    Published on December 22, 2010

    New Delhi: BrainGain Magazine has introduced a new vertical dedicated to medicine on 20 December, 2010. The vertical aims to provide information on universities offering medical courses, interviews and admission process with faculty members, student experiences and financial aid for foreign students. The articles in the section include details on medical education, interview with Veeranna Merla, faculty member at the Columbia University Medical Center, excerpts from renowned cardiologist Dr. Sandeep Jauhar’s book “Intern: a Doctor’s Initiation”, new fields of study such as medical illustration, biomedical engineering and telemedicine along with a clinical and experimental research on alcoholism and details of cardiology as a career. BrainGain Magazine already has dedicated sections on MBA, Engineering and Law and plans to launch the entire spectrum of verticals covering everything from archeology to zoology.

    Harjiv Singh, Founder and CEO of BrainGain Magazine said, “The Indian medical education market alone will grow at a CAGR of 18% by 2012-13 to attain a market size of Rs 35 billion. Government’s initiative to increase the number of medical colleges by 65% in the past 10 years has not met the required doctor-patient ratio. India needs at least 600,000 doctors, 200,000 dental surgeons and one million nurses each year and the recent Knowledge Commission Report states that government financing cannot be enough to support the massive expansions in opportunities for higher education on a scale that is now essential. We at BrainGain Magazine are committed to highlighting the opportunities in the fields of medicine, research, biomedical studies, telemedicine and medical illustration to name a few for students desiring education outside their home country.”

    Medical studies have tremendous growth potential for students in coming years. According to a study conducted by the Organization for Economic Cooperation & Development the total health care expenditures around the world is pegged at $5.5 trillion for 2010. Health care contributes 8% to the global GDP. The need for qualified physicians and surgeons continues to grow around the world. Hospitals, clinics and the primary-care industry report a constant shortage of physician, nurses and medical assistants to help meet the health-care needs of the public.
