Karnataka has been leading the pack with two of its colleges rated AAAA+ among Top Medical Colleges in South India 2015. The region has been on the top of the list with as many as 177 colleges and has been the hub for those aspiring for post graduate studies in medicine, surgery and allied disciplines. Out of the 54 medical institutes surveyed in this zone, the annual publication count was close to 2500 with nearly 9300 faculty members. This is a revelation since the average faculty productivity is a dismal 0.27.


Kasturba Medical College, Manipal, St. John’s Medical College, Bangalore, Christian Medical College, Vellore, and Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research, Puducherry, are among the best medical colleges of the region, with each of them being rated AAAA+ among Top Medical Colleges in South India 2015. Of the five states and one union territory in the region, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala and Telangana do not have any medical college that can be rated at par to the aforesaid four colleges, when you take all the parameters into consideration. Still they have colleges like Andhra Medical College, Vishakhpattanam; Government Medical College, Kozhikode; Government Medical College, Thiruvananthapuram; Amrita School of Medicine, Kochi and Osmania Medical College, Hyderabad, that are AAA+ rated among the Top Medical Colleges in South India 2015. Gandhi Medical College and Hospital, Secunderabad, and Deccan College of Medical Sciences, Hyderabad, come close behind Osmania Medical College, Hyderabad, in Telangana as per the rating.
