An idea whose time has come

‘Vaidyo Narayano Harihi’ – The Doctor is verily the embodiment of the Divine. The human body is a thing of marvellous beauty and it is doctors who are bestowed to better understand this Divine Miracle. The sanctity of this opportunity is often diluted by approaches contrary to the fundamental principles of Medical Care – treatment over healing, greed over compassion and money over love.

When medical education becomes a commodity that is sold and bought, often students are conditioned to commercialise their knowledge and skills during their medical practice, resulting in urbanisation and commercialisation of Healthcare and medical brain drain. The Medical College shall provide value based medical education, inspiring youth to serve the society and contribute towards Universal Health, with love and compassion as the guiding tenets.

UNITED BY A SINGLE PURPOSE

Vision


Accessible, Affordable and Acceptable, quality health care and education to all.


Mission

Medical education and healthcare of the highest standards being imparted, especially to the underserved and vulnerable, with last mile connectivity by our staff who are embodiments of love and compassion.

What we do

‘The Right to Education’ is a fundamental right of every child and citizen of this nation. Unfortunately, most children are bereaved of the right kind of education, especially the rural population. Pursuing medical education is a far-fetched dream for rural children due to the impeding factors of affordability and accessibility.

With a vision: IN RURAL – FOR RURAL, this Medical College will nurture medical doctors with noble values, who will dedicate themselves to serve the underserved, particularly in rural India. It will ensure that every deserving candidate will be able to pursue medical education and thus will help in reducing the brain drain in the nation.

Students learning from daily interactions with patients

Why we do

When highest standard of education and healthcare is imparted, the beneficiaries out of immense gratitude will try their best to offer it back to societal welfare. The deserving candidates will receive their rightful position to learn and contribute thereafter. Only rural students will return back to their villages and serve the pockets of the population residing in the villages which are in deep need of quality healthcare.


The students of this one-of-its-kind medical college, should be equipped with brilliant heads, compassionate hearts and skilful hands. In view of this, medical education at Sri Madhusudan Sai Institute of Medical Sciences and Research is a compulsory residential program, wherein knowledge is imparted as values-based medical education.

Healthcare Gap in India

Access to good health and well-being is a human right. India’s National Health Policy 2017 envisions the goal of attaining the highest possible level of health and well-being for all without financial hardships. However, equitable healthcare access continues to be a challenge owing to the double burden of disease, urban concentration of healthcare institutions and cost of specialist cases. The gaps are particularly substantial for rural India, comprising of more than 70% of the country’s population.

Access

Poor Access to Healthcare

73% of India’s Rural Population accesses only 25% of the country’s Healthcare Infrastructure

Skill

Incredible Shortage of Doctors

Doctor-to-Patient Ratio should ideally be 1:1000 (as per WHO norms) but in rural India it is 1:11,082.

Poverty

Left with No Choice

55 million Indians are pushed into poverty annually due to unaffordable healthcare costs.

Medical Education Scenario in India

Medical Education is the foundation for a country’s Healthcare vision and India produces the largest number of doctors in the world. However, the current healthcare gaps in the country require an increased focus on medical education, particularly to address the skewed doctor to patient ratios. Despite having more than 550 medical colleges, there is an urgent need to increase the infrastructure and student intake. High cost of education and quality of medical training are also significant deterrents to students taking up medical education in the country.
