MESSAGE FROM DIRECTOR
Dr. B.R. Ambedkar State Institute of Medical Sciences (AIMS Mohali ) is the fourth medical college of the Punjab State Government which is being established under the centrally sponsored Scheme of “Establishment of new medical colleges by upgrading district/referral hospitals”. The institute is awaiting letter of permission from its regulatory body National Medical Commission (NMC) for the Academic session of 2021 -2022.
To receive our first batch of 100 MBBS students, we are ready with distinguished medical faculty in pre-clinical, medical, surgical and allied specialties. State-of-the-art machinery, equipment and essential infrastructure are being set up to provide high quality medical education as well as patient care.
True to the motto of our institute; Humanity, Service and Equality, it will be our constant endeavour to train competent, compassionate and caring physicians through excellence in teaching, patient care, and medical research with a core component of inclusivity . The blending of these vital ingredients’ is an extension of the vision of Dr BR Ambedkar after whom the college is named and whose life exemplifies these high principles in every action.
The institute is committed to create an ambient environment for nurturing innovation, creativity and excellence preparing the next generation of physicians to carry this path forward in the years ahead. The institute is also completely on board with the new competency based medical education and is developing innovative approaches to medical education that are irrevocably engaging and compelling. To keep up with our tech savvy students we aim to enhance education by increased use of simulations, evolving technologies ,resources and above all we need to listen to the students and figure out what is working for this generation.
The institute is committed to this strategic planning process, mentoring our new batch from diverse backgrounds with increasing engagement with the community; and intend to create an inclusive and affirming environment.
As a paediatrician turned Director Principal, it is my dream to provide nurturing ecosystem of learning and care for this institute and to ensure that ideas, impressions and images, I had about medical education take shape.
To the students, I hope that by joining our college their dream of becoming holistic doctors or health care providers and serving the society will be fulfilled.
I would be remiss if I do not acknowledge that starting a new institute comes with its own challenges, but I am sure with co-operation and blessings from all the stakeholders, we can surmount them .
