In order for the freshly joined students to get a birds eye view of how the overall medical education is going to be, the institutions conduct an orientation program (both under and postgraduates), wherein the students are taken around the campus and introduced to the faculty and the process of the education system is explained to them. By this the students realize what is expected of them and can align their vision in a more meaningful manner.


Dissertation writing is a difficult task that every postgraduate student is expected to know.
