The Board of Council of Medical Council of India (MCI) has awarded recognition to Sri Padmavathi Medical College for Women (SPMCW) for 5 years allowing them to take 150 admissions in the MBBS courses annually for the academic year 2019-20. The renewable 5-year recognition was granted to the Medical College in Tirupati, Tamil Nadu on 13th March 2019.
The Tamil Nadu State Government has awarded SVIMS (Sri Venkateswara Institute of Medical Sciences) financial resources for the construction and development of buildings, infrastructures and equipment. Also, the college has got 50 acres of land by TTD (Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams) for conducting the newly introduced MBBS courses. The Director cum vice chancellor of SVIMS Dr. T S Ravikumar issued a press release thanking the state government for extending the much-needed support for getting MCI recognition.
The first MCI Recognition to the college was granted in the academic year 2014-15 and since then the college had to apply for renewing MCI recognition every year. From now, this will not be the case as MCI has granted 5 years recognition to the medical college.
SVIMS congratulated SPMCW director and all faculty members for making this possible through their hard work and dedication.
Dr. Ravikumar said that the institute will emphasise upon medical education in all fields where it is required and will train students in various facilities such as BLS (Basic Life Support), ACLS (Advanced Cardiac Life Support), Socratic style pedagogy in clinicopathologic conferences, Trauma life support, FCCS (Fundamental Critical Care Support) training and modular teachings in quality/patient safety.
