Chandigarh, July 21 (IANS) Students passing out of government medical colleges in Haryana will now be required to do a fixed period of service in government hospitals of the state, state Health Minister Anil Vij said on Friday.

Presiding over a review meeting of Medical Education and Research Department here, he said: “The formulation of this policy would end the shortage of doctors and provide new doctors with employment in the state.”
