The smaller state of Chhattisgarh lies way ahead in the population to medical college ratio. It has four medical colleges per million of population. Bihar has a better index on the frontier of medical education. Seems like during the bifurcation of the state, Madhya Pradesh lost its medical college base to Chhattisgarh being served only by private medical colleges. Jharkhand is being served by its lone government college and has the worst population to medical college ratio across the country.
