Being the only Medical College in India to receive approval from the New York State Board of Regents, Kasturba Medical College increases opportunities for future medical aspirants drastically! According to the statement in the media, KMC students who are aspiring to seek long-term clinical clerkship placements in the state of New York will face no restrictions on the duration of clerkship/elective experience anymore.
Dr. Vinod Bhat, the Vice-Chancellor of Manipal Academy of Higher Education, shares his delight in the press note- “Delighted to learn that our flagship institute KMC Manipal has been recognized by NYSED. KMC’s constant endeavor towards excellence in medical education and research has demonstrated its strength internationally”.
New York evaluates foreign medical schools through a distinguished process. A thorough self-review against International standards is submitted by the institution which is followed by a site visit. A team of international faculty visited the campus in November 2017 and generated a review report. After considering both the reports, NYSED issued a recommendation for students’ placement in a long-term clinical clerkship.
Stating the benefits of this trailblazing achievement, the Dean of Kasturba Medical College, Dr. Pragna Rao adds, “The recognition by NYSED will open up opportunities to our medical students to take up Long-term Clinical Clerkship Placements in the state of New York”.
