Why join MGIMS, Wardha?
From the beginning, MGIMS was committed to excellence in education, clinical services and research. MGIMS is a non-capitation educational institution that offers quality medical education in streams like preclinical, paraclinical and clinical.
After getting admission, the college begins with an “Orientation Camp,” where the students spend 15 days in a Gandhi ashram called “Bapu Kuti” to understand the Gandhian way of life. The students take part in three different camps during their stay in MGIMS.
The first one is at the Sevagram ashram where students spend a fortnight to get an idea of Gandhiji’s vision.
The second one is a few months later when every student is allotted five rural families each - a tradition that helps them understand health problems of the rural people during their five-year-long stay at MGIMS. The experience goes beyond textbooks.
The third camp is the Reorientation of Medical Education (ROME) camp that is organized at the beginning of the final year.
This rich exposure to rural India is followed by an internship and a one-year-long posting in rural NGOs that allows students to acquire skills for practicing medicine in resource-limited settings.
Sevagram is not about rural Medicine alone but also offers fantastic training in well-equipped laboratories, classrooms and hospital wards.
Salient Features that make MGIMS extraordinary –
Community Prayer: Students have to attend this prayer once in the morning and once in the evening. It is a collaboration of prayers from different religions and creates a sense of unity among the students.
Yoga: Every morning the students are supposed to do yoga under the guidance and invigilation of a yoga expert. The students are also informed about the various benefits of yoga in their life.
Khadi: Spinning Charkha (spinning wheel) and wearing khadi clothes. This brings a unique, rich culture in the Institute and also helps in promoting the handloom industry of Khadi cloths.
