RIMS Ongole receives final recognition from MCI

Sunday, November 5, 2017

The Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences has received the final recognition from the Medical Council of India clearing the decks for the medicos to appear for NEET-PG or practice medicine.

This came in the wake of Health Minister Dr.Kamineni Srinivas opening the Rural Health Centre attached to the RIMS at Madipadu village, one of the conditions for the MCI nod. Waving the letter of recognition from the MCI, Director K.Valleswari said ‘now the successful students can practice or go for higher studies without any problem’.

First batch of passed out students had missed admissions into the New Delhi based AIIMS due to delay in getting recognition. It has been a touch and go affair for the RIMS which has faced many teething problems before getting nod from MCI in the last five years after meeting the stringent norms set up by the council.
