Do you know that National Medical Commission inspects medical college to find out whether the college has sufficient infrastructure, faculties, resident doctors, patient flow, bed occupancy, etc to conduct medical courses.
It is difficult for parents to read the NMC assessment report of each and every medical college and access the quality of colleges. We have identified certain key parameters from the assessment report such as Average Patient Flow Per day, Total Outpatient Beds, Number of PG Courses – clinical, non-clinical, etc.
You can rank medical colleges based on these parameters as well as tuition fees which will help you during choice filling. Install MBBSCouncil Android app by clicking below to use the medical college ranking tool.
