MANIPAL = Medical Colleges at Manipal and Mangalore campuses.
ie. Kasturba Medical College, Manipal and Kasturba Medical College, Mangalore.
Remember the recent story about de recognition of KMC? That KMC Manipal students were not eligible for USMLE?
Guess what? The management has proved once again their efficiency. They have shown how committed their team is to get a speedy resolution, how they will go to any level to help students. Students are now eligible for USMLE examinations 8)
The problem came to lime light on 1st week of February when few students declared openly, contacted management. The guys at Manipal almost immediately swund into action, they were in touch with the highest officials in the country, and resolved the matter in days. Simultaneously responding to student queries, phone calls, emails, reassuring them.
I beleive they were polite to phone calls, even when each staff was getting more than 200 phone calls a day..!! from all over the world. Some phone calls even abusive :P Understanding the anxiety of the parents, they took the time and explained the situtation to every student! Fatherly approach
No wonder KMCs have the highest representation of students of Indian origin in US residency programs. A major chunk of Indian American Doctors in US are KMC alumnis..!! The college is also very swift in responding to enquiries from international bodies like ECFMG, no bueracracy, no redtape, no bribe, no politics. Just pure buissness.
I state with pride again, If you want to go to medical school in India, go to Manipal
EDIT: the problem has still not been solved. Management is working on it, for a speedy solution. Please checkout www.xkmcite.tk for regular updates.
