Vice Chancellor’s Message

A warm welcome from Dr. D. Y. Patil Medical College Hospital & Research Institute, Kolhapur!

Medical College hospitals have the central and very critical role in the entire healthcare delivery system of a nation. Owing to their clear and continuous focus to develop new and better ways for patients care through outcome-based teaching, research and the development of new technologies, the teaching hospitals are considered as the backbone of the healthcare system. This is where medical knowledge continuously evolves and new cures and treatments are found. An additional and very distinctive feature of the teaching hospitals is their ever readiness in critical community services, such as emergencies, epidemics, trauma and burn centres. Additionally, they are the training ground for thousands of physicians and other health professionals each year, thus are a vital part of nation’s safety net.
