BJGMC Pune,a great choice for UG medical education

Posted on 09 Sep' 16 by Nikita
Batch of 2018 | MBBS
Being the only government medical college attached to a General Hospital in Pune district, BJGMC caters to over 4000 OPD patients daily and extends appropriate and skilled clinical care to over 1200 inpatients. So students get an opportunity to observe and study a wide spectrum of clinical presentations ranging from the common cold to highly morbid clinical conditions. At the same time, it provides a platform to inculcate and develop one's artistic, oratory, leadership and management skills.

One of the best medical colleges of India

Batch of 2019 | MBBS
The college draws the best students from the country and the state. The infrastructure is adequate for a batch of 200 MBBS students, about 150 PG students, and other allied medical course. For an old college, the laboratories are not in pretty good shape, but there are an ample number of reagents, instruments and specimens for everyone so that there is no compromise on opportunities for learning. From pre-clinical to para-clinical to clinical subjects, you are taught by experienced and learned faculty and tutored by the best residents. The college boasts of a 1296 bedded tertiary care Sassoon General Hospitals (SGH) which unlike other Govt. hospitals maintain better standards of healthcare facilities and cleanliness. The OPD attendance is huge as SGH caters to a population of surrounding districts too which enables a UG student to look and learn from the n no. of cases. Construction for an eleven-storeyed new hospital building, acquiring of land for Cancer Hospital are two important expansion plans out of many which are in progress. For the academically oriented students, seminars, quizzes, and symposia are conducted throughout the year by different departments of the college. Apart from the annual gathering and Vedanta (during Ganeshotsav), a lot of intra and inter-college cultural, literary, sports, mountaineering and social events are held to make budding doctors an active member of the society.
