"The course is proposed to be taught in the district hospitals and is especially designed for those who have completed their schooling and passed their qualifying examination of class 12 from notified rural areas.

He also said the aim is to "generate a cadre of healthcare provides who by the virtue of the way they are chosen, trained, deployed and supported would be motivated to live-in and provide comprehensive primary healthcare in the rural areas at the sub-centre level."

India faces acute shortage of trained medical practitioners, especially specialists, nurses and paramedics.
