AMU to go for accreditation of its healthcare services including JN Medical College

ALIGARH: Encouraged by the grading by National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) after the visit of its Peer Team in February last and in view of its impact on the academic and research activities of the university, the Aligarh Muslim University has decide to go for assessment and accreditation of all its healthcare services also.
