"The special areas of interest from the Korean delegation were elective training programmes in the field of undergraduate and postgraduate training, nursing education, bio-technology, physiotherapy and research," said Shakti Gupta, the media in-charge at AIIMS.

R.C. Deka, the dean-academics, and several department heads of AIIMS participated in discussions with the visiting team.

"It was decided to have more discussions to work out the modalities for exchange of faculty and students and collaborative research in various fields that are of common interest to both," Gupta told IANS.

In October, international magazine Newsweek had profiled AIIMS as one of the top 10 hospitals of the world by calling it "an oasis for India's poorest".
