KAPV Medical College third preferred in counselling

R. Krishnamoorthy

Next only to the Madras and Stanley Medical Colleges


A majority in the 13th batch for which the classes commenced recently were girls

Eighty-five students were admitted through State-level counselling


TIRUCHI: The K.A.P. Viswanatham Government Medical College was ranked next only to the Madras Medical College and the Stanley Medical College in the order of students' preference in this year's counselling.

Full-fledged library and laboratories, model tests in addition to the mandatory internal examinations and quality infrastructure were the reasons for the college's top-notch standing, according to the dean A. Karthikeyan.

Faculty strength in both clinical and non-clinical areas was another major factor. There was scope for the college to improve its standing among the 15 government medical colleges owing to the new teaching facilities, he said.

The Annal Gandhi Memorial Government Hospital attached to the college has been provided with a blood component analyser worth Rs.9 crore and a digital x-ray equipment costing Rs.1 crore . Real time PCR (Polymerised Chain Reaction) facility for investigation purposes has already been installed, hospital sources said. A majority in the 13th batch for which the classes commenced on Monday constitute girls.

There are 63 girl students out of 90 students. Eighty-five students were admitted through State-level counselling and five through All-India counselling. Ten more students will be admitted through All-India counselling that is in progress, according to college sources.

“The library is poised for further improvement. Books worth Rs. 25 lakh will be purchased shortly,” the College Vice-Principal M.A. Aleem said.

The KAPV government medical college has excelled in post-graduate programmes as well. Three students of the first batch admitted in 2007 have secured admission to super-specialities.

Two additional seats in anaesthesia were added this year. The 16 PG seats comprise four each in General Medicine, Surgery and Anaesthesia and two each in Paediatrics, Obstetrics and Gynaecology.
