Wonderful times at kmc

Remarks -

Brilliant teaching and environment in the college with lots of opportunities to participate in sports music and cultural events. It helps you develop interpersonal skills on a solid academic foundation making you an all round and competent doctor. Only negative aspect is a fragmented campus which is offset by the beautiful city and the ease of travel within it. Overall a positive experience
