It is my pleasure to inform to our parents and all well wishers that the KIST Medical College (KISTMC) has completed six years of academic calendar. The first batch of MBBS students are in the middle of their internship program.
KISTMC has been able to implement in practice the excellent curriculum of the Institute of Medicine (IOM) to which the college is affiliated. To practice this problem oriented, integrated and community based curriculum was a daunting task for the management, faculties and students. However, because of commitment and dedication from all concerned, the course have been successfully completed as per our calendar of operations, despite many unforeseen and unpredictable hurdles.
The college is unique among institutions in the country to offer a Medical Humanities module and counseling of students along with their parents or local guardians which has been widely acclaimed nationally and internationally. Apart from all theory and practical classes being conducted as per schedule, regular internal assessment and conduction of correlation seminars has been one of the milestones of our program.
In the clinical side, the hospital is running smoothly under the able leadership of hospital director Prof. Rishikesh Narayan Shrestha. I am also happy to inform that the college has a dedicated and committed team of clinical coordinators: Prof Amita Pradhan (Basic Sciences Coordinator), Dr Suraj Bajracharya (Clinical Coordinaotr) and Dr Sudeep Acharya (BDS Coordinator) without their dedication it would have been almost impossible to run the adacdemic programs/classes so smoothly.
