The chief guest Ms Ghana P Kumar, Deputy Superintendent of Police, Puttur Sub division related her instances with the importance of documentation both for a doctor and same for a police.

Dream big with the help of your parents whose dreams come to reality in you.

The presence of the Divine Light shines on all the people who work here. A lasting impression will surely be created by the faculty, staff and patients but its your responsibility to leave a lasting impression here. This hospital which began in 1880 is synonymous with Kankanady which got elevated because of this instution. No one college under the FMCI banners lacks anything, high moral and ethical standards are set.
