JIPMER undoubtedly one of the best for UG medical education

Palak

Batch of 2016 | MBBS
When I first cleared the JIPMER entrance exam, my first reaction was of extreme joy for making into one of the best rated medical colleges for UH education in India. As the initial excitement settled, I was soon consumed by doubts regarding leaving my home and going to live in a land so far with a different culture, food habits, Etc. With my parents' encouragement, I braved this decision and I am so glad I did! I'll comment on different aspects under separate headings to keep this review more comprehensible Education - JIPMER is rightly reputed to be one of the best. We get a lot of clinical exposure. We see a lot of rare and interesting cases too. If you want to learn, there is nothing to stop you! Unlike most govt. colleges, classes, and clinics are taken seriously. Not all faculty is great, some can bore you to death but overall they do a stellar job, especially during clinics. Once you finish MBBS at JIPMER you will graduate with at least the minimum basic knowledge a medical officer should have.. Or you could be freaking amazing too, depending on the input you put from your side. The resources are all there. INTERNSHIP - you will learn your basic clinical skills and case management. The pay is also better than most places in India. If you don't want to work and learn and instead want to focus on PG entrance exam preps, this is not the place for you. HOSTELS - great hostels, newly constructed. The hostel complex in itself is beautiful. There is a common mess which serves both north and south Indian food. Under the mess are a TT and carrom room and two separate gyms for guys and girls. The central portion of the complex has basketball and throwball/volleyball courts. The whole place has lots of greenery. The football ground and stands are located on the other side of the campus. Hostel Curfew is virtually nonexistent. INFRASTRUCTURE - they are renovating all the old hospital buildings. The Super speciality block and women and child hospital are newly constructed. JIPMER is equipped with a lot of latest diagnostic equipment. The campus is itself is very green with great roads. The security is very tight. The infrastructure overall is pretty good. COLLEGE LIFE - can never get boring here. Students from all over the country come here. You are exposed to so many new cultures and lifestyles. There is always something coming up.. Inter-class cultural or sports or film fests or our Inter college fest SPANDAN. The culture, in general, is very liberal. CONS - it's difficult to think of any! If at all, I would say people from outside of pondy and Tamil Nadu will struggle with language once clinics start.. But it's not something you can't learn. People do it every year. Another thing is you don't have great coaching options for PG entrance in pondy. Also, you won't have much time in your internship to prepare as you are expected to work. Personally, I don't have a problem with this but some others do.
