Established in September 2002, the Amrita School of Medicine has achieved great academic recognition from the students, community and educational fraternity as an institution providing not only world-class training but also the right perspective on life. The present School tower comprises 12 storeys with a total floor area of 120,000 sq. ft. The hospital has an additional floor area of 1,100,000 sq.ft.
The course involves both theory classes and practical sessions. Clinical exposure begins in the second year with classes conducted by clinical specialists emphasizing the relevance of the basic sciences to clinical practices. Hospital postings and field visits to public health centers aim at exposing the candidate to different scenarios in which doctors in India might find themselves, and how to go about providing the best care in all the circumstances.
A commitment to the practice of medicine in its highest form is a lifelong commitment to humanity. Our resolve to be a Center of Excellence both in medical training and in the practice of medicine will well prepare eager and talented young men and women to play a key role at the forefront of their chosen profession.
