D Y Patil Group to set up Medical College here

The D Y Patil Group, one of the largest private educators in India and which is also looking at agriculture here, says it will shortly begin building a medical college at Turkeyen to which other schools will be added.

In a statement today, its General Manager Dilip Kawad said that discerning the need for a “first class Medical College in the Caribbean”, the Group decided to establish its University here “because of its interest to build a strong link with Guyana and to offer Guyanese a medical education without the need to leave their home country if they so choose. “

It said the Group will hire a Guyanese construction firm to erect this facility and will employ Guyanese and “world renowned faculty” to ensure that it offers the best possible education to its students. It said that the first batch of students will begin their courses early next year.

It added that the Group will also utilize local faculty for some of the courses and will hire other Guyanese during construction and later for its operations at the University. It said that the  facility will be a net foreign exchange earner.
