Andhra Pradesh and German Consul General To Plan Student Exchange Programme

On Thursday, May 26, Andhra Pradesh Health Minister Vidadala Rajini received a visit from the German Consul General in Chennai, Michaela Kuchler, who indicated an interest in exploring research collaborations and medical student exchange programmes between Germany and the southern Indian state.

Kuchler suggested that the two parties exchange agreements on the aforementioned topics, as well as agreements to introduce yoga and Ayurveda as medical practices in Andhra Pradesh and implement them in Germany.

In the meantime, Rajini asked German businesses to invest in the Visakhapatnam port city's MedTech zone. Amita Desai, the Honorary German Consul General in Hyderabad, accompanied Kuchler.

Kuchler represents Germany as the consul general in Chennai, and he has consular authority over Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Telangana and the Union Territory of Puducherry.

In another development, Germany has introduced two new regulations in an effort to increase the number of nursing students and address the nurse shortage. The Nursing Studies Strengthening Act draught, which streamlines the recognition of foreign degrees and grants students a training allowance, has been approved by the cabinet. 

The government wants to reduce the training allowance gap and boost interest in nursing courses with the new laws. To encourage more people to choose a career in nursing, the federal government has stated that nursing courses should be made more appealing.

It also states that based on the prior laws, the same standards apply to nursing students who have already begun their nursing study. They will therefore be qualified for a training allowance for the remainder of their academic career.
