Why Wait to receive a NEET allotted place to a Medical School?

“Despite the fact that the world in general, and India in particular, is becoming more individualistic, it is our mission to continue promoting the ‘inclusive excellence’, which reflects our commitment to the vision of our founder, Dr M.S. Ramaiah. With this in mind, our Medical College was established in 1979, and now ranks amongst the best 20 Medical Colleges in India. We are proud of the fact that our Medical College has received a Gold ranking by the QS World Rankings, and is recognized and accredited by the Medical Council of India (MCI).

We believe that the true potential of the new generation of medical aspirants can only be realized by training them in the skills that make them employable, in India and internationally. While relentlessly driving healthcare innovation in India, we have been actively partnering up with distinguished universities, to ensure that we offer an internationally competitive education. Our association with St. George’s University was the logical next step for us, and enables medical aspirants to pursue a top-quality international medical education degree pathway that is fueled by the spirit of investigation, discovery, and intellectual exchange. We look forward to seeing the next generation of Indian doctors graduating from this program, and contributing to the advancement of healthcare in the US, India, and other countries.”

“The world is facing a primary care physician shortage – from the largest hospitals in London, New York, and Delhi, to community clinics in rural Kenya. St George’s University founded its world-class School of Medicine in 1976, established to be a top center of international medical education, drawing students and faculty from 140 countries to study medicine in Grenada, and practice medicine in more than 50 different countries around the world. Today, the University’s more than 20,000 graduates include physicians, veterinarians, scientists, and public health and business professionals across the world.

Our highest purpose is education and there is no better education than one that is truly international. The University is affiliated with educational institutions worldwide, including in the United States and the UK, and we are delighted to have found a great association with Ramaiah Group of Institutions in India. With Ramaiah University of Applied Sciences’ outstanding track record for innovation and great University ranking in India, we are delighted to be associated with this distinguished institution to offer medical students in India a truly international medical degree pathway, which offers a strong opportunity for practicing medicine in the US, UK, or India.”
