Placement Experience :

First of all the placement in medical colleges are not like engineering college. We don't have any company coming on campus to recruit us. We have different hospitals who approach us for the position of junior doctors or surgeons. The internship is an integral part of the course. We approach the district hospitals for our practical training sessions.

Campus Life :

The extracurricular activities in my college are very happening. The labs, including the Human lab, the Experimental lab, the Biochemistry lab, the Hematology lab, are just fantastic. They provide all the facilities required to do any experiment or research. All of them are best. Our college cultural fests are one of the best among all the colleges.

Alumni/Alumna :

The senior network in here is fabulous. They are the most friendly, helping, loving, caring person in my college. They help us learn how a doctor should be and how should we face this world. All in all they are the best we could have get. Most of our college alumni are well known doctors in different cities.
