Puducherry: Through a recent notice, the Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research (JIPMER) has instructed its UG and PG students to not travel back to the institute campus until they get a recall notice or an official initiation from the Dean.
Earlier, the institute had notified all its MBBS students about the tentative schedule that the institute had released for recalling them for interaction to address their concerns amid coronavirus lockdown. Batch-wise discussions were held through video conferencing with all the MBBS students on 23rd, 26th, and 27th May 2020. All the concerned HoDs along with Dean (Academic), Dean Karaikal, and Associate Dean (Academic) interacted with the students to address their concerns.
It was decided that the students will be recalled to JIPMER in a batch-wise manner to prevent sudden crowding of hostel premises. However, many students travelled back to the institute.
