Ques. What happens at the first day in AIIMS Delhi for an MBBS?

● Top Answer By Snigdha Roy on 28 Sept 21

Ans. I have a friend from AIIMS, New Delhi, and here are some snippets of his experience from his initial days.  The first day he got to know that he will be studying at AIIMS Delhi was quite overwhelming for him. He got many calls from his family and friends. He also received a video call from four of his seniors who seemed scary at that time but after his freshers, they will become his favorite seniors. When he reached the AIIMS campus, the first thing that he wanted to do was stand in front of the garden which he had thought of for about two years and get a picture clicked. But he ended up getting confused between gate number one and gate number two and entered through gate 3. It’s better if you know a few seniors beforehand, they might take you to the hostel and your room, and then it becomes an interactive experience. On the first day of CREST, his parents made sure he was settled in the hostel. Then the first thing of the day was the director‘s address in the Dr. Ramalinga Swamy board room. As the day progressed, he got to meet various people. Some of them became his best friends in a month. After this, he was taken to the campus and the hospital. He also visited CRHSP Ballabgarh the next day which is the sub-district Hospital under AIIMS where students are posted during their third years and internships. They also visited a PHC in Chains which is a village posting after the internship. This was his initial experience at AIIMS. Read more

Ques. How is an MBBS at Sharda University, as the fee structure is too high?

● Top Answer By Khushi Jha on 15 May 21

Ans. A friend of mine is doing an internship at Sharda University and is regretting each day he has to spend there. He says the money being spent for this purpose could have been put to better use. Sharda University spends a fortune on its marketing but fails to deliver the facilities. The faculty is least interested in teaching the students and taking care of patients. The junior doctors do most of the hard work. There are very few surgeries performed. In addition to that, even normal deliveries of a sufficient number are not done. The internship involves making fake patient files. This is what they do during their clinical postings. There are a lot of fees which are not mentioned in the advertisement(s). Other than these, Sharda University is a pretty popular college if you want to have fun. However, if you are serious about your life, look for other options.Read more

Ques. How is the life of an MBBS student at KJ Somaiya medical college, Mumbai?

● Top Answer By Nisha Khanna on 23 Mar 21

Ans. Like two faces of the coin, each and every college have its own positive and negative aspects. Let us look through a few of them in order to find out the student satisfaction. Positive aspects: Curriculum: Academics are taken very seriously here. The curriculum is well designed, portions are always completed on time and professors are always on hand if you need any help. Class strength: Entire batch will have only fifty students. So each one of you will get special attention. The student-faculty ratio is amazing.  Ragging free campus: So far there are no complaints of ragging on campus. And any complaints regarding the same will be taken seriously. The locality around campus is safe for women in all aspects. Location: If you live in Mumbai and wouldn't prefer traveling a long distance or do not wish to stay in a hostel, K J Somaiya is perfect for you.  Facilities: College offers you amazing facilities. Libraries are stocked. The hostel is next to the college. The canteen is amazing. The campus even offers you football turf, cricket ground, skating rink, and indoor table tennis hall. Private hospital: Being a privately funded hospital patients aren't scarce, but the place isn't overcrowded too. This gives you ample time for your PG preparation and also perfect clinical exposure. Negative aspects: High tuition fee: The fee is extremely high for an infrastructure which they offer. 3/4th of the college is non-air-conditioned. Girls’ hostels are pretty good but boys’ hostels are below average. Compared to other colleges, the needs are not fully met for the price you pay. Extracurricular activities: There is not much encouragement from the management for participation in extracurricular activities. Yearly fest namely 'Akarshan' is all that college has to offer to you. Strict attendance: Attendance is strictly maintained. If you fail to meet the minimum requirement you may be detained or your grades might be affected. If the positive aspects from your perspective outweigh the negative ones, then college life is pretty good at KJ Somaiya. If money is not your primary concern and if you prefer Mumbai to study then this is the perfect college for you!Read more
