Top Medical Colleges in India


We, at PMT Gurumantra, have prepared this list after ample research and discussion with the students of those particular colleges. We have taken following parameters to prepare the list:

1. College Infrastructure

2. Internal PG (as in AIIMS,  VMMC & IMS-BHU)

3. Hospital Infrastructure

4. Average number of patients visiting the OPD per day

5. City (Delhi = Mumbai > State Capital > Cities >Town

6. State (North-East < South / North < UP/Bihar< MP < Maharashtra < Gujarat)

7. Number of State P.G. seats (UG:PG ratio)

8. Bond for rural posting (in Maharashtra)

9. Faculty

10.Past academic record

11. Hostel facilities (you are going to spend the most unforgettable 5 1/2 years of your life here!!!)

12. Ragging scenario – yes it is still prevalent in many colleges in UP and Bihar; but it’s fun in rest of the colleges.

13. Fees (lowest in AIIMS, MAMC, LHMC & UCMS)

14. Recreation Facilities – sports, culture, literature – AIIMS and AFMC are the colleges where you would get ample opportunity to groom your interests and passion.

15. Attendance – yes! Not now, but once into college you would realize that you should have chosen a college where regular attendance is not a compulsion – here too AIIMS leads the list.

16. Salary – Confirm the current salary paid to the interns and PGs to the students in the college you are taking. Compare it with other colleges. It is lower in MP, Maharashtra and other states…In Delhi the salary paid to the interns is around 12-14000 and to the PGs its 50000 approx..

It is clear how our ranking would be different from the others magazines and newspapers because they take research and hospital facilities to be the only criteria. They fail to realize the importance of these small but significant factors. It is also important to note that the ranks which these magazines give should not be and actually I must say, are not followed while choosing the college, the reasons being:

  • AFMC is ranked 2nd by these magazines but no student getting under 1000 rank in AIPMT goes for it. In fact many students prefer taking less known medical colleges in B grade towns of MP, UP and Bihar instead of AFMC. Even some students getting selected in AFMC only prefer taking a drop than joining it.
  • VMMC is seen nowhere in the list but is the fourth college to be filled in AIPMT counselling after MAMC and simultaneously with UCMS and LHMC.
  • Manipal and many private colleges have been included in the list but no one prefers it over any government medical college.
  • They don’t take into account the Internal PG factor which is the most deciding factor while choosing a medical college.

Moral of the story is that don’t believe in such lists prepared by any magazine or news channel.They include the names of some selected colleges for the sake of earning some bucks.

It should also be noted that a single list of top medical colleges can never serve as a priority list for a single student. Hence we haveprepared a priority list which would help you to select the college of your choice according to your needs and preferences.

1. AIIMS,NEW DELHI

Everyone knows it is the first choice for every medical student.

But students from southern states can choose in between JIPMER (better) and CMC Vellore if they don’t want to remain away from home. JIPMER has Internal PG advantage on its side and is better known as AIIMS of the south.

 

2. MAMC= JIPMER

Excellent faculty, Excellent academic record, good infrastructure, inexpensive – just Rs.2500/year including hostel, delhi city as well as the Delhi PG advantage makes it the first choice in AIPMT counselling. It has been a trend always and every student follows it blindly. For PG advantage, – Southern candidates should better choose JIPMER and among the North Indians, those who care for their PG seats can choose in between VMMC and BHU in preference to MAMC.

3. AIIMS BHOPAL= AIIMS RISHIKESH= AIIMS JODHPUR= VMMC= BHU

NEW INFRASTURUCTURE,PG ADVANTAGES, BEST FACULTIES HANDPICKED FROM WHOLE INDIA,LOWEST FEES,AIIMS TAG

VMMC=BHU= INTERNAL PG ADVANTAGES,GOOD HOSPITALS

 

4. UCMS = LHMC

While University College of Medical Sciences is usually chosen by the boys, LHMC (Lady Harding Medical College) is only for the girls. No internal PG but Delhi PG advantage.

5. KGMC,LUCKNOW= SMS,JAIPUR=SETH GS=GRANT,MUMBAI

STATE CAPITALS, GOOD ACADEMICS

6. BJMC,AHEMDABAD = GMC, Chandigarh = MMC, Chennai = Medical college, Banglore

  • Good colleges; city advantage.
  • Choose on the basis of location

7. Grant Medical College / Seth GS , Mumbai

Note: Seth GS, Mumbai has very good infrastructure and is excellent in academics, hence it used to be the 3rd choice of students but because of the bond restriction, it is avoided now.

8. OTHER State capitals

9. your state college

 

* AFMC

Consider it only when you can acclimatize in the Armed Forces and can tolerate such a degree of discipline or if you belong to the army background. There is also bond restrain and you would have to give a sum of Rs.15 lakhs if you don’twant to serve in the army after completing the course. Otherwise, it is undoubtedly one of the best medical colleges in the country with excellent infrastructure, academics, recreation and sports facilities and many other benefits – the greatest onebeing a lieutenant and serving the army and that too with a handsome salary and allowances.

But strictly speaking life is not as good as it appears to be. You can easily leave it as the option and prefer any other college instead.

 

Over all list of the top Medical Colleges

1. AIIMS,new delhi

2. MAMC= JIPMER

3.AIIMS BHOPAL= AIIMS RISHIKESH= AIIMS JODHPUR= VMMC= BHU

4. UCMS = LHMC

5. KGMC,LUCKNOW= SMS,JAIPUR=SETH GS=GRANT,MUMBAI

6. BJMC,AHEMDABAD = GMC, Chandigarh = MMC, Chennai = Medical college, Banglore

7. Grant Medical College / Seth GS , Mumbai

8. OTHER STATE CAPITALS

9. YOUR STATE COLLEGE

Final note: Take your own decision, don’t get carried away by what others are suggesting.
