) has been in operation for morethan twelve years. As from Sept. 2009 it is a Public Limited institution.A management committee comprising of leading doctors, businessmenand bankers is running the college. The alarming cost of medicaleducation abroad and the fact that it is out of reach of the majorityof the populace prompted us to initiate this venture and we hope toprovide service which is easily accessible, reasonably cheap and of thehighest standards. The fact that the number of the sick and the needyare increasing almost everyday at our hospital has only encouraged usto work even harder.
