My aunt, being an alumnus of this college and a very successful doctor, had told me about the academics and more importantly the way this college moulds one's work attitude and personality. Other renowned medical colleges in Maharashtra (KEM, NAIR, SION) don't do much on the personality development part and are excessively focused on academics that they're just another form of schools. Hence, I choose this college for my graduation.
They are quite renowned doctors with heavy experience. They've excellent insights of this profession and how to handle situations in times of crisis. They impart all that knowledge to students.

Actually, in the MBBS course, there is no issue of placement. After completing 4.5year course we have to do a 1yr internship in which you get earning of 5k per month. Also after the internship, you get the MBBS degree. Then you have to do 1year service in a rural area where you get 60k-80k payment per month from the government.

I don't find any negative remarks regarding our college except that the UGstudnets have to wait for 4years before appearing for the NEET pg courses. Rest everything is postivie.

All India common medical entrance examination. The course chose me. There was only one seat left and I had no other option.
Fees was expensive but we fought and made it cheap. We were charged for the paying seat which is like 1.5 lacs per year but we fought a case in the high Court and won and the college had to reduce it to like 25000 per year .
