I took the MAHE admission test in 2014 and got a score of 160/200. Kasturba medical college is a prestigious college, one of the top medical colleges in India and top most in the private section. The college offers everything, from an exceptional curriculum and faculty to opportunities for budding students in the field of research, diagnostics and extra curricular activities such as dancing, singing, sports etc.
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
As it is a private college, the fee structure is expensive. But the facilities offered by the college is upto par with the fees paid. The laboratories are modern with all the latest machinery and equipment. The student is given a laptop from the college's side. The fee is high, but the college is worth it.
Since it is a medical college there are no placements. although the internship offered is brilliant. The interns work as part of the different hospital units, assist in surgeries, work with different departments in the hospital. Internship in the hospital is very educational and helpful
The hostel facilities are excellent with non ac and ac hostels, with attached mess. There are enough rooms in single and double occupancy for 2000 students. The mess food is hygienic and good with food ranging from south Indian to north Indian cuisine.
Alumni is very active and the senior students always help their juniors with studies as well as extra curriculars.
The faculty is extremely dedicated and experienced. They go beyond their limitations to help the students offering extra help in studies and research opportunities. They interact with the students and make the lectures interesting and fun. The teachers also participate actively in sports and cultural events!
Gender ratio is equal, with equal opportunities given to both girls and boys. There is no ragging and the anti ragging squad is pretty strict about it. The students diversity is phenomenal, with students from all over India and also Malaysian students. There are seats for the NRI students as well. People are friendly and work well together as a team and it is a great place for development and exposure!
Exams are held semester wise. Every semester ends with the internals or end semester exams and at the end of the year, the university or final exams are held. Exams are not frequent and the scene is pretty chilled out. The College also assesses the students through end semester mcq tests for assessment of the student's progress and preparation required.
COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
The curriculum is extremely student friendly and thorough with regular lectures and clinics. The lectures are organized and interactive with visual aids for the students while in the clinics the students get first hand experience with the patients and diagnostic procedures.
My college provides internship to all students who've successfully completed their final year. The general stipend is Rs.25000 for an intern. The overall experience shall be a knowledgeable one because the interns are prepared for the bigger world out there. Hospital ethics and discipline is what is learnt during internship along with experience to perform diagnostic procedures and first hand patient doctor interaction.
