Campus Life :

the sad part is that our college doesn't organize any cultural programs or fests. Yes but we have extra curricular activities such as workshops on hygiene and sanitation, seminars, a technical program was held in our campus with the 44th workshop on respiratory allergy diagnosis and management. We also have sports arrangements for students to participate and enhane their skills in that field also.

Admission :

This college has a very simple entrance based admission process. After completing graduation in the relevant subjects or fields, I was eligible to apply for college based on my academic scores. But I had to sit for NEET PG entrance and as I qualified, I got admission in this college.

Fee Structure And Facilities :

Like other private institutions, the fee structure of this college is very much affordable and the courses can be availed by anyone. Most college have very high fee organization which some students can't pay. But the desires can be fulfilled in this college with affordable ranges.
