The campus comprises of medical college, hostels, faculty, a branch of nationalized bank, two ATM’S, students, A Post office, playgrounds, sporting field& old & new hospital blocks. Here the hospital block is crowded while the residential section is quiet & idyllic.
The JIPMER organizes various events throughout the academic year. Some of them are academic and some are cultural, sports and extracurricular. Spandan: It is the annual festival of JIPMER. It is organized for seven days in the month of August or September. It includes cultural events, sports events, literary events and entertainment shows. It witnesses thousands of students from all across the country participating in various events.
Academics is excellent. Teachers are very friendly. Campus life is awesome. Extracurricular activities are good. But the student body doesn't have a lot of power. There is no ragging or politics among the students.
No bad highlights whatsoever, In my opinion Jipmer is the one of the best Colleges in india for undergraduate medical learning with the high patient load providing ample opportunities to hone ones clinical skills.
One of the best with great campus, activities and academics. Very good library.
