ONE OF THE REPUTED MEDICAL COLLEGES
PGIMS Rohtak as everyone know is one of the oldest medical colleges in India. It is also one of the reputed colleges. It was given an A+ grade. It provides quality education to the students who thought it might be lacking a bit in infrastructure and extracurricular activities.
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
Fees structure of PGIMS Rohtak is moderate. It is neither much expensive nor too cheap. The fees for every session lies between Rs. 65000 to 80000 which includes academic charges or tuition fees, hostel charges, annual maintenance fees excluding mess charges.
Admission in all the medical colleges (both government and private) is done through a single exam - NEET (National Eligibility Entrance Test) This test is conducted for the students from all over India. Admission procedures are then handled by DGHS, Chandigarh.
Yes, I reside in Boys Hostel. The hostels which are old as expected are not fascinating. The new hostels are quite impressive. 24×7 water and electricity supply is maintained. The mess is there in every block. A gym is there for the boys.
As such I don't have alumni network but I know of my seniors in college. Seniors are very helpful. They guide us in academics. Seniors guide us on how to study for an exam. They also tell us the important topics.
PGIMS Rohtak is one of the oldest and reputed medical colleges in India. The faculty here is highly qualified and experienced. Due care is taken for the medical education of students. Teachers also focus on the practical and clinical knowledge. One thing that I personally feel is that there is a bit of a lack of interaction between students and faculty.
Extracurricular activities are held under ARMSCON, the annual Fest XTACIA, and sports meet. Various sports like cricket, basketball, football, badminton, tennis, chess and volleyball are organized. Apart from sports, cultural events include singing and dancing competitions. Various Art and craft events are also organized.
