Medical Universities in India


Medical Universities in India are those universities which specialise in offering medical courses in India. A Medical University in India offers various under graduate, post graduate certificate programmes and diploma level programs. Degrees, Diplomas and Certificates awarded by Universities offering medicine in India are approved by central government, state government, UGC and National Council for Human Resource (NCHR). Health Science Universities, Medical Sciences Universities, Health Management Universities India are some of the names with which these are referred. MBBS is the basic and major medical course preferred by students, BDS and B.Sc. (Nursing) being the other preferred ones. In fact, these two courses represent two specialities of medical science viz. Dental Sciences and Nursing. Dental and Nursing education came under the purview of – Dental Council of India and Nursing Council of India. However, with certain controversies surrounding them, they stand to be abolished. These prominent courses are offered by medical universities and some exclusive medical universities named – Nursing Universities and Dental Universities. These also are approved and governed by NCHR. Apart from nursing and dental science courses, Health Science Universities in India also offer various other specialised courses in speech and hearing, ophthalmic techniques, human biology, radiography and so on.

To get entrance into these universities a candidate has to appear in an entrance test conducted in India by various States and Universities. These medical entrance tests also stand to be abolished, being replaced by a by a common MBBS entrance test (single PMT / National Eligibility Entrance Examination). Majority of the medical universities have their own hospitals to provide practical training. Exceptional candidates are absorbed by the hospital and the institutes, thereby benefitting both the parties. Certain Indian Universities have outstanding medical department because of which the universities are categorised as medical universities though in the technical sense, they are not so. There are some outstanding institutes and research centres which have gained the status of ‘Deemed University’ or ‘Deemed to be University’. Medical Sciences Universities are also characterised by strong infrastructure facilities which include hostel facilities, health care, rebate on treatment, food, curricular, research and other essential facilities.

Health Management Universities in India also reserve certain number of seats for Foreign Students. Foreign candidates have to fulfil certain conditions before they can get admission and pursue a course. The availability of courses varies from one institute to other.  For more information contact the respective institutes. Faculty of dental sciences or dental sciences college under the Chhatrapati Shahuji Maharaj Medical University upgraded as a separate dental university in late 2003. But by 2007, with the change in government was reverted back to the Faculty of Dental Sciences. Keeping in mind the year 2011, there are no dental universities in India  or any specialised universities for dental sciences. Though, there are specialised dental colleges in India whose mainstay are various dental courses. Click on the link for a list of Dental Colleges in India.
