The institute provides academic and personal counseling of the students.

i) The ward-teacher programme - was started to improve the communication between the students and teachers. Each teacher is responsible for 10 undergraduate students. The post graduate teachers function as ward teachers of their students. The students approach the teacher in case of any difficulty regarding his/her personal problems, health and academic problems. The ward- teacher programme enables students to overcome the difficulties faced by them during initial adjustment period as well as throughout the course of study.
If and when the need arises, the teacher can refer the ward to the “counseling cell”.
ii) Counseling cell:
We have a system of having an academic incharge for preclinical - I MBBS, paraclinical - IIMBBS and clinical - IIIMBBS batches. The respective academic incharge receives the inputs about the performance and attendance of concerned students.
