The studies in the medical domain have advanced at a rapid pace over the past few years, with the introduction of many new techniques of treatment. Research and innovation are constant in this domain, and medicine is fruitfully combining with other disciplines. The element of guided research is gaining significance, and students are preferring colleges that offer hands-on training with experienced doctors. The criteria for deciding the ranking of medical colleges in India 2021 is based on the following parameters: 

  • Teaching methods
  • Learning resources
  • Professional practices
  • Social outreach
  • Research techniques

The team at IIRF has conducted a thorough analysis and created a comprehensive list of medical colleges that offer the best education, training, and placements to aspiring doctors, nurses, pharmacists, etc. While the All-India Institute of Medical Sciences continues to be the leading institute in this field, most of the other top MBBS colleges in India are also government-backed, like the Armed Forces College, Pune, KGMC, Lucknow, and Lady Hardinge Medical College, Delhi.

However, a few private colleges are achieving high standards in technology, infrastructure, training, and research and have made a mark as the top medical colleges in India. The Kasturba Medical College, Manipal, and Christian Medical College, Vellore are leading names in this category. 

The need for training a larger pool of medical personnel is being felt in India, as more focus is being given to boosting the healthcare sector. With newer colleges emerging, the need to rank them with an unbiased outlook is essential. The top colleges in India must abide by the professional ethics for advancing medical sciences while matching the international standards for seamless medication. IIRF’s ranking for medical colleges reflects all these parameters.
