For 1 year, we have to take part in an internship programme. It is mandatory and is mostly general medical stuff. Then for placements, we had a very active placement cell and the college had contacts with very nice recruiters so it became easy to get good jobs. And also, graduating as a medical student already opens up doors to very high paying jobs.
When I was in college, I had a great time participating in activities though they were mostly education related and also had a lot to learn from. So most of the activities we had were educational. Then the college campus was very good and spacious. We had all the facilities available on-campus so it was very easy for the students.
My course, i.e., MBBS was for the duration of 4 years and 6 months along with 1 year of compulsory internship. The college provided us with all the required tools, notes, equipments, labs, texts and technology required for the course. All the other course were provided with the same facilities.
The college was beautifully constructed with huge playgrounds and spacious multipurpose halls with auditoriums which were air-conditioned. The classrooms were well maintained and had proper air conditioners, the library was huge and had all the related text books with labs provided with the latest technology and equipment used in medical field. All the drugs and medicines were available in the college campus for us to know about the details.
We had some graduated doctors working at the hospital of the university. All were very helpful and supportive, they used to guide us in our respective projects and fields. We used to assist them as our seniors and they used to help us along the curriculum. The doctors working elsewhere used to come once in a while and share their experiences and exposure in different fields with different doctors.
I applied to the college through their official website and filled in the application form with the required details. The Eligibility criteria was with 50% of the boards examinations and 50% of NEET entrance. After filling up the details and attaching the required documents, I was called up on the campus for my interview session. The interview was cleared and I was admitted to the college.
