Message from Dean

Greetings from College of Medicine, GMU!

College of Medicine, which is proudly celebrating 20 years of Excellence, is an integral part of the GMU Academic Health System which integrates academia and research with healthcare providing a unique vehicle of quality in patient care, education and discovery.

Apart from our signature Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) program, College of Medicine offers the Bachelor of Biomedical Sciences (BBMS) and the Associate Degree in Preclinical Sciences (ADPCS) programs. The competency-based curricula of our programs are benchmarked with internationally known competency frameworks with emphasis on evidence-based medicine, inter-professional education, communication skills, community engagement, professionalism and ethics. We have adopted international best practices in teaching / learning and assessment approaches.

Students undertake research along with their faculty mentors and as part of curricular requirement. They present their research work in national and international scientific platforms and publish in reputed journals. Students are trained to become self-learners and life-long learners to adapt to the rapidly changing advances in the medical field.

Our unique strength is that we own our clinical training facilities which includes JCI accredited hospitals, ambulatory care clinics, CAP accredited diagnostic and research laboratories. This has enabled us to embed our students across programs into the workplace environment with early clinical exposure and at another level, employ our graduates in our own facilities.

We work in close partnership with our health regulatory authorities and industry for clinical placements and internship training for our students. We have established international collaborations with reputed universities across the globe for student and faculty exchange, elective placements, internship, research and for offering collaborative medical degree programs.

Our alumni remain our best ambassadors. Our 900+ graduates from over 15 cohorts are well placed across the globe including many practicing in the country and the region contributing to the health economy of the nation and the region which aligns with our vision and mission.
