The life at MAMC simply rocks.

The practical and tutorial of each subject vary from semester to semester. In medical posting we learn medical procedures and take experience from senior doctors, Since my medical college ranks 5th in India, it has a very great tradition and history of creating excellent doctors.
The teaching methods and studies are excellent. The doctors and professors take excellent lectures.
We have many completion tests every week after completion of every topic.
I had a very excellent experience in my college.
Fees and Scholarship:
The college fee for each semester at MAMC, New Delhi is Rs.5,000 and scholarship options are very few for general category students. For schedule caste and schedule tribe student, the scholarship options are plenty.
But medical education is very costly in terms of coaching and post-graduation entrance examination preparation.
Banks loans are available, but it's quite tricky to pay them as a medical student don't get instant placement after MBBS completion and many of them tend to study further for post graduation entrance.
Placements & Internships:
MBBS comprises of a 1-year internship after 4 and half years of study.
The stipend during an internship is Rs.12,500 at MAMC and after that, in government hospitals, a doctor gets Rs.65,000 on a contract basis and in government service the pay for an MBBS Doctor is Rs.90,000. In self-practice, the earning vary vastly. In medical hospitals, an MBBS doctor is paid Rs.35,000.
No hospitals are going to visit medical colleges for placement. Doctors apply for vacancies in hospitals.
But for postgraduate doctors, the earning reaches as high as Rs.50,00,000 - Rs.1,00,00,000 per annum.

AIPMT conducts examination for all India's, state medical colleges. It is a very competitive examination, as for 250 seats in my college a total of 650,000 took this examination.
MAMC is ranked No.1 in AIPMT competition exam.

PGS are their. I dont know thier fees.

Classrooms are big and spacious. There is no wifi connectivity. Library is good fully air conditioned with a separate reading room that is open 24 hours.
Placements & Internships:
In medicine particularly we do our internship after course completion in the college we do our bachelors from. It is mandatory for every mbbs proffessional. After mbbs we need to do our postgraduation first.
Placements are not much of a trend here. Some studemts do work as junior residents after mbbs their average salary would be around Rs 30000 monthly.
Every maulanian joins MAMCOS organization aftr they complete their mbbs so all the alumni are well knit and stay in contact.
Academics & Faculty:
Timings are from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm. We have postings in the hospitals and classes. Exams at the end of each semester and one final proffessional exam for each year at its completion.
Method of teaching varies frm proffessor to proffesor and they use powerpoint presentations and projectors, some may even use chalk and blackboards. In the postings we get to interact with the patients and learn the clinical aspect of medicine from examination to diagnosing a patient. The quality of teaching is pretty good. Its not spoon feeding; basically most of the reading is the responsibility of the student like in any proffessional education but the classes give us a an overview that helps us to understamd the subject better.
Overall experience is good. Get to learn new things everyday.
