Green lawns, a giant modern hospital, security guards wearing fresh uniforms... the campus of the Deccan College Of Medical Sciences is a sign of where medical education in India is headed. Balance is something this place and its colorful students have managed to impressively achieve.
A total of 150 aspiring doctors from diverse cultures enroll every year at DMC, and enter an environment that is an enviable mixture of fun and responsibility. They have avoided the age-old trap of getting so involved with their studies that they end up as fantastic doctors with fantastically bland personalities. Jack cannot become a dull boy here. The campus is full of 800s, Zens, Ikons and Corsas, and the latest Nokias and Motos are in everyone's hands. The students also point out quickly that they churn out their quota of university toppers, lending perspective to any wrong impressions.
Three major hospitals, Owaisi
, Princess Esra
and Railway Hospital, each catering to a different socio-economic group, support the teaching of the students here, and the number of patients is adequate.
Overall, Deccan Medical College is the best recognised private college in Hyderabad, with a student culture distinct from the government institutions. It's reputation continues to only grow, and is heralding an age of the doctor with a life!
