Admission Notices

Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences, Sevagram, is the first Institute of modern medicine that is placed in a rural setting in India. Based onintro1 Gandhian ideology, it was established in 1969 as a Gandhi Centenary Project and takes pride in the fact that it’s Kasturba Hospital, started in 1944, is the only hospital started by the Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi himself. The Institute’s inception goes back to the freedom struggle, when the seed was sown. Late Dr. Sushila Nayar, the Founder Director of the Institute, was arrested along with Kasturba and Mahatma Gandhi during the Quit India Movement and was kept in detention with them in the Aga Khan Palace at Pune, where she had an opportunity to observe and understand Gandhiji from close quarters. She intro2ealized that he was a Statesman with a vision, longer than life. After their release from the prison when Gandhiji returned to Sevagram, he found that the village often faced a number of epidemics, resulting in high morbidity and mortality. So he asked Dr. Sushila Nayar to have some health facility and the result was Kasturba Hospital in the memory of Ba who had passed away on 22 February, 1944 while in detention at Aga Khan Palace. The 15-bedded hospital was actually for the Women and Children of the village. The seed to serve the poor and needy was sown so deep in the mind of Dr. Sushila Nayar that when she went to Johns Hopkins, USA to specialize in Cardiology, it did not interest her and she shifted to Doctorate in Public Health.

intro4In 1962, when Dr. Sushila Nayar became the Union Health Minister, she became aware of the difficulties in finding qualified doctors for serving in rural areas. She also realized that Primary Health Centres had been set up but the doctors were reluctant to go and serve the villagers. The Government had been trying to improve medical care in the rural areas but about 1/3rd of the Primary Health Centres, each catering to about 80,000 or more population, were without doctors. The then Prime Minister Late Shri Lal Bahadur Shastri, while addressing the Central Council of Health Care in July 1965, suggested to the Union Health Minister, to start Medical Colleges in rural areas so that young doctors trained in the rural settings would have better understanding of the rural health problems and would be better placed to attend to the health problems of the villagers. Dr. Sushila Nayar a young medical graduate, suggested that the first rural Medical College in the country should be started at Sevagram to be run by the registered Kasturba Health Society, Sevagram. The proposal was sent to the Planning Commission and was approved. The National Committee for Gandhi Centenary celebrations, with the President of India as the President and the Prime Minister as the Chairman of the Executive Committee gave their blessings to the proposal of Dr. Sushila Nayar and the first rural Medical College of the country at Sevagram was included in the Gandhi Centenary Programme. It was resolved that the expenditure would be shared by the Govt. of India, Govt. of Maharashtra and Kasturba Health Society in proportion of 50:25:25, and in 1969 the first batch of 60 students was admitted. Specific reservations were kept for students coming from rural background and are still being kept, fulfilling the dreams of the great visionaries Dr. Sushila Nayar, Shri Lal Bahadur Shastri and Gandhiji himself.

Born under the influence of Gandhiji, the Institute endeavors to maintain and impart to it’s students values that form an integral part of a good human being. It envisages, to bring out doctors that would have a better community oriented health care approach and who would impart services based on ethical and moral values founded on the principles of truth, non-violence and love. Smoking, drinking of alcohol & non vegetarian food is strictly prohibited. Staff and students are expected to wear Khadi. Sarva Dharma Community Prayer and Shramdan also form a part of the Code of conduct.

The college holds it’s own All India entrance test for MBBS course at MGIMS Sevagram that includes a special paper on Gandhian Thoughts. Sixty five students are admitted purely on merit every year. It also offers post-graduation in all the major medical disciplines, all most all recognized by the Medical Council of India. It is the first Institute in the country which started M.D. in Community Medicine in 1977. The course is similar to that of Preventive and Social Medicine but has an additional component of training medical doctors as family physicians capable of providing primary health care to rural masses. On the same principles, the hospital also runs a General outpatient department which is like a model Primary Health Centre and the interns posted there learn to deliver comprehensive health care not only in providing preventive and curative services but also in picking up the knowledge of when to refer a patient to a specialist.

The Institute follows all the norms laid down by the Medical Council of India and by the affiliating University, Maharashtra University of Health Sciences, Nashik for quality Medical Education. However in order to achieve it’s objectives included in it’s curriculum, it has made some innovations which are unique and have stood the test of time now for many years. These innovations in no way hamper the academic results, which till date have always been commendable.

Soon after admission to the MBBS course, the students live in Gandhiji’s Ashram at Sevagram for 15 days, where they are oriented to Gandhian ideology and learn the Gandhian way of life. In a rapidly changing society influenced by culture of consumerism and falling moral values, this period of 15 days in the Ashram leaves an imprint on the young minds and helps them in becoming more fore-bearing and better individuals. Drawn from different geographical and cultural backgrounds of the country, the students within a short span of time exemplify real unity in diversity by exhibiting respect for each other’s cultural values.

The post-graduate students are encouraged to attend continuation of medical education (CME) activities, conferences and workshops. They are also being deputed to other medical institutes for training on specialized tochnical aspects related to the subjects Radiology, Anaesthesiolgy, Medicine and Psychiatry. The results of all the Post Graduate department are above 90%.

India is primarily a country of the rural masses. This college was established with the concept to evolve a pattern of medical education that was best suited to the needs of the country and to bring out doctors with community oriented health care approach by training them in the community also rather than only in the four walls of the hospital. In this context, during the first year itself students adopt a nearby village (a new one for each batch) and live with the villagers for a fortnight in the village. Here they survey the village, understand their social and health related problems and impart health education. They help villagers in forming Self Help groups for health and economic empowerment of women, youth and the aged. The students are made responsible for the health care of the families allotted to them and they follow them till the end of their medical training. By the time they leave, they develop a bond with the villagers and the experience fills them with compassion and a sense of commitment towards the deserving poor rural communities.

Another step towards achieving the objective of rural services, the Institute has introduced a mandatory criteria of two years of rural service for eligibility to any post graduate course in the Institute. The same is now being adopted by many other States in India and at National level also. One Hundred Three NGOs with non profitable health facilities for the rural population all over India have been identified and the young graduates are posted there to help in providing services to the needy. Seven hundred and forty seven graduate doctors have so far completed their rural postings.

In-order to achieve it’s objective of imparting health care to the rural poor at an affordable cost, the institute has evolved a unique health insurance scheme which envisages participation of the people in their own health care. It creates health consciousness in the community, gives more strength to Gram Sabhas and even takes health facility to the door steps. This scheme is available to individuals, families, institutions and even to entire villages. It is non profitable and is called Annual Family Insurance Registration Scheme.

Kasturba Hospital is today a 770-bedded well-equipped teaching hospital. Over 70% of the patients are rural, from Vidarbha region of Maharashtra and adjoining states, especially from Andhra Pradesh. The hospital is equipped with most of the modern gadgets necessary to provide affordable comprehensive treatment to the rural poor and best of education to the students. It now has state of the art Intensive Care Units, which are comparable to any ICUs in a modern hospital. The Institute has a well run Computerized Hospital Information System and an Accident and Emergency Centre which hosts the Trauma ICU, Operation Theatres, all under a single roof, so that life saving measures can be taken with minimum delay. The ten operation theatres in the hospital are well equipped and modernized with positive pressure air-conditioning and central suction and gas supply.

Kasturba Hospital has an upgraded Radiology Department with Mammography, MRI, Spiral C.T. Scan, Ultrasound, Color Doppler and Image Intensifier along with other routine radiographic facilities. The Radiation Oncology Unit in the Institute is providing Cobalt - 60 treatment to cancer patients and has installed Linear Accelerator with 3D TPS system and Brachytherapy unit. The other investigative laboratories are also equipped with modern automatic analyzers, BACTEC Blood culture and other investigative systems. Forensic Toxicology laboratory is the only one in a Medical College in Maharashtra. It is being used for research and giving services for poisoning cases.

The de-addiction center, the only one of it’s kind in Vidarbha, is available to the patients wanting to get rid of their insobriety. The hospital is also extending facilities for indigenous medicine like Ayurveda and Naturopathy.

Any Institute is recognized not by the pillars of it’s building, but by it’s faculty and their achievements. Drawn from all parts of India, MGIMS can boast of eminent full time teachers and physicians, many of whom have won prestigious National and International awards. In a short span of 37 years, five of our faculty have received the Dr. B.C. Roy National award. While our Former Director, Dr. Sushila Nayar, was the recipient of the highest award of Medical Person cum statesman, Ex Deans Dr. J.S. Mathur and Dr. P. Narang received the award in the category of eminent medical teacher, Dr. B.C. Harinath for developing the specialty and Dr. P.B. Behere in the category of ‘Socio- Medical Relief’. Two of the teachers, Dr. S. Chhabra and Dr. B.S. Garg have received best teacher awards from Maharashtra University of Health Sciences, Nashik for the two consecutive years (2006 & 2007). Dr. S. Chhabra has also received Distinguished Community Services Award for emergency obstetric care from International Federation of Gynaecology & Obstetrics. The efforts of faculty have also been instrumental in getting funds for research projects, both Institute and community oriented, from many National and International agencies. The Jamnalal Bajaj Tropical Disease Research Centre is doing pioneering work on diseases like - tuberculosis and filariasis. It also hosts a fully Computerized Bioinformatic Centre funded by the Department of Biotechnology, Govt. of India and is one of the few centers in the whole of India? The faculty in Ophthalmology has resolved to treat all treatable blindness from the whole of the district, while the Obstetrics and Gynaecology department has done a commendable job in bringing down maternal mortality to nil in it’s 53 adopted villages. The staff in Community Medicine is engaged in innumerable community oriented health projects for the promotion of education in rural areas along with prevention of disease. Under the community led initiative in child survival it has, in association with Aga Khan foundation USA, taken up 67 villages of the district. The Microbiology department has surveyed the whole Wardha district for the prevalence of bacillary tuberculosis and is now poised for a complete disease survey under the auspices of Central TB Division of India.

In one of it’s unique outreach activity, the hospital has posted two of it’s faculty members in Melghat Tribal Area, place known for severe malnutrition in Vidarbha. The unit annually draws almost 4000 outdoor patients and over 250 indoor patients. It also organizes diagnostic eye camps and motivates tribals to say no to alcohol and tobacco in addition to maternal child health promotion activities.
