AIZAWL, April 23 - The Mizoram Cabinet has renamed the Mizoram Institute of Medical Education and Research (MIMER) as the Zoram Medical College.
The MIMER, the State�s first medical college, was established as a State referral hospital at Falkawn, about 16 km from here. It was inaugurated by former Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla on August 7, 2018. The medical college began classes with an intake of 100 students for three courses � Anatomy, Physiology and Biochemistry � from August 8 last year.
Meanwhile, an official release today stated that the Cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Zoramthanga on Monday decided to recruit 946 teachers for primary and middle schools to solve the perennial problem of faculty shortage across the State.
State Education Minister Lalchhadama had earlier informed the State Assembly that as many as 2,300 posts are lying vacant, and that the Government has been making massive efforts for rationalisation of teachers� posts across the State. Reports said that various schools in the rural areas of the State faced shortage of teachers due to unequal distribution of teachers.
