B J Medical College, Ahmedabad Review
I studied in BJMC from august, 1993 to April, 2002. It was then and is still the best place to study medicine from MBBS to DM in Gujarat.However one needs to be very focussed to survive in the college. There are lot of anti social elements at all levels and the average student is served well if he or she ignores them and goes about the classes in a very low profile manner. Since the top students of Gujarat take admission her there is a good opportunity to interact with the best and improve oneself. The clinical material avaiable in the hospital attached to the college, viz. Civil Hospital, Ahmedabad is mind blowing. But there is a lot to be desired as far as the teaching programme is concerned especially at the undegraduate level. Almost always learning has to be self directed with some guidance from a few teachers and lot of help rom seniors. Though the alumini from this college has made it tops in the world, most of the times it is due to their own efforts rather than due to any structured teaching in the college.So if you qualify for this college spare no second thought in taking the admission. Once on the inside, tie blinkers to your eyes and slog it out, swalow all insults and slights and stop not until you see light at the end of the tunnel.
