St. John’s Medical College is an institution that has held its place among the best medical colleges from its inception. It has been a dream destination for those seeking careers in medicine. In a large measure, this popularity is because of the lofty ideals & deep sense of values that the institution embodies along with an outstanding training program. Coupled with a purely merit-based selection policy, it has distinguished itself by providing its students the best faculty, an eclectic learning experience and opportunities to understand the social significance of a medical career.
The founders of this institution had intended the college to train competent and compassionate doctors to serve the underserved population of our country. As an alumnus, my own experience during my rural service in a poorly developed community not only helped me hone my professional skills but also made me a more wholesome and caring physician and human being. And that has been the experience of generation after generation of students graduating from St. John’s.
To enhance the availability of professionals other than doctors, the college runs undergraduate & postgraduate paramedical courses in several disciplines. We also train hospital administrators of the future through our Masters course in Healthcare administration. Needless to say, students in these courses too enjoy all the good things the institution has to offer even while imbibing high moral and ethical values.
It is a pleasure to welcome future generations to this institution. It will give us much happiness to train and mentor them through their courses. It will give also bring a sense of fulfilment to all of us when they turn out to be outstanding professionals in their fields.
