“I have to look at the medical education part and what else course we can start. May be new post graduate courses. In the hospital services side, we need to prioritize main areas in which we can excel. So we will have to finalize something, what we want to become, perhaps the best in India. So I believe that the present director of AIIMS-Bhubaneswar has given it a great head start and that has to be strengthened and working from a position of strength we have to see how much forward we can go,” said Dr. Batmanabane speaking to a local television channel in the city.
