Reasons to study in Government Medical colleges

Pursuing MBBS in a government medical university comes with its own perks. Some of these reasons are stated below.

1.Affordable fees structure: The first and foremost reason why most students want to pursue MBBS or any other course in a government institution is because of its subsidised course fees. The private medical colleges demand a fee of around 10 lakhs per year for MBBS. Whereas government medical colleges charge around 20 thousand to 50 thousand per year (fee depends on the college).

2. Better academic exposure: The government medical colleges are renowned for providing students with internships in top government hospitals. This boosts their confidence and brushes their medical skills. Furthermore, the chances of pursuing researches and presenting collaborations and papers as would-be doctors are highly preferred in government colleges. The central or the state governments aid seminars, symposiums, workshops, etc. for MBBS students as well.

3. Scholarships: Meritorious students are awarded scholarships and this at times also cuts down their regular tuition fees. The government medical colleges also support students coming from economically weak backgrounds and the seat reservation for them is 10% (as in India).

4. Age-old reputation: The institution that one passes out from carries a lot of weight in the biodata. That is why medical students require a good educational reputation at the very initiation of their careers. History is proof of the fact that common people also have more faith in a doctor who has passed out from a government medical college than in the one from a private institution.

Owing to all these reasons a huge number of students are encouraged to pursue this course. They gladly take up MBBS and with undivided attention and guidance from the faculty, they become great doctors.


Pursuing MBBS from government medical college is dream of every student. But, after crossing NEET cut-off, if a student is unable to take admission in government college then they can apply in abroad goverment universities.
