MEDICAL COLLEGE & EDUCATIONAL SCENARIO
Education is a key element of infrastructure for the growth of a society. The educational infrastructure has several layers such as primary education, secondary education, technical education and higher education. The economic strength of a society depends on the standard of educational infrastructure, in general, and the quality of Medical education, in particular. Any society must ensure a free, creative and high-caliber university environment so as to produce successful Doctor of that society. In India, the growth in the field of Medical, Management, technical and professional education over the past 50 years is phenomenal. This growth has fuelled the developments in the fields of engineering and information technology. However, this development needs to be reviewed in view of global competition as well as an increase in demand for trained quality Doctors in society for best services in the field of Medical services. The economy of a country has three segments - Agriculture, Manufacturing and Services.
For a small country like Singapore, the economy can survive and even prosper with only one or two segments. However, for a large country like India, the economy has to progress on all three segments. In order to achieve an overall rate of growth a sound 8 to 10 percent, it is imperative that all three segments have to progress simultaneously. Tamilnadu state has come out with flying colors. The state of Tamilnadu is industrially well developed, has sufficient power generation capability and is blessed with abundant natural resources.
In terms of education system also it makes mark in the National level. However in terms of medical education it lags behind the other states of the country. The state needs quality doctors and quality medical service. In the Virudhunagar district there is no medical college which is not able to fulfilled current demand of doctors. If there is less numbers of doctors definitively service quality-wise also decrease. Our aim is to provide each class of society satisfied Medical service.
