Dr. DY Patil Medical College, Hospital & Research Centre, Pimpri


Location:

Dr. DY Patil Medical College is located right behind the Mumbai Pune highway (old) in Pimpri. Travelling by buses is a little inconvenient, because although a number of buses ply on the highway, the college is a 20 minute walk from the bus stops. A vehicle is always preferable.

 

Infrastructure:

The Medical College campus is very big and numerous buildings can be seen springing up. There are huge separate buildings for MBBS, BDS and a whole lot of other medical courses like physiotherapy, homeopathy, ayurved and nursing. There two boys and two girls hostels in the campus. The classrooms are roomy, the library has enough number of books and the reading room is open right from 6 am to 11:30 pm. “It’s superb”, says a students and it cannot be denied!!

 

Fees:

Approximately Rs. 3,11,000 per year for MBBS

 

Faculty:

The faculty is excellent - senior experienced teachers. Visiting faculty includes professors from Armed Forces Medical College (AFMC) one of the best in the country.

 

Attendance:

The college is strict about the attendance requirement and students are need to attend atleast 70% of the lectures and practicals for their internal marks not to be affected. “That much discipline is needed” says a student. “After all they are producing doctors”.

 

Crowd:

The crowd is a good blend of study-oriented and not-too-study-oriented people. Students come from all over the country be it Delhi or Rajasthan. Gujaratis and Maharashtrians form at least 50% of the crowd.

Hangouts:

There is a McDonald’s nearby, where students often hang out. Other than this, there is Big Cinema, E-square, and something called Dakshin. “RR ki Tapri” right outside the campus is a favourite of the students and they are found to munch on hot “pohe” and cold coffee every morning.

 

Canteen:

The canteen is meant only for snacks which the students generally manage from the food stalls outside. Mess food is of average quality and can be managed.

 

Activities:

Various workshops, seminars and guest lectures related to academic topics are organized throughout the year. Besides the co curricular activities Annual day is celebrated every year.

 

Hospitals Affiliated:

DY Patil Hospital, Ruby Hall Clinic, Aditya Birla Hospital, YCM. Number of patients is good and exposure to the students is enough.

Verdict:

The great infrastructure facilities and excellent faculty make it one of the good choices. But the biggest downside the students face is of huge fees and bad administration. Also the college is not under MUHS but under DY Patil University.

Dr. D.Y. Patil group of medical colleges is one of the worst ones where you can pursue your degree, be it MBBS or M.D. or any other courses. What they produce is "Good for Nothing" professionals. I have done my MBBS from this college, and they are simply money oriented people. The staff and everybody else is absolutely non co-operative. There are hardly any patients visiting this hospital. Yes at the time of MCI inspections hospital pays people to get admitted. LOL..
Since they know that students paying such a hefty fees must be rich kids only so the clerical staff is indulged in bribery for all small official work and don't even move an inch without it. Exam papers are leaked, Invigilators, and all system is corrupt.
When you pass out of this college as a doctor.. all you have is a degree WITH ABSOLUTELY NO EXPERIENCE. This is just not me.. all my colleagues, juniors and seniors have suffered the same fate. Its better to join an Arts college than joining this one. Or go to some remote village after passing out and become a just fever doctor prescribing Paracetamol to everybody.
All I want to summarize here is join any other college but not this group of college as they are big money eating scums.
