RIMS greets medical freshers with induction program
Good job students welcome to RIMS! Fresh pass outs of medical, dental and nursing streams were made to sit through an orientation cum induction program organized at the RIMS Administrative block.
The induction program at RIMS involved about 49 MBBS or medical, 16 dental and 16 Nursing students to participate. This is just the beginning, as 30 MBBS and 13 BDS students from Manipur and other students are also expected to join the institute. Students from mainland states and other beneficiary NE states will also be granted admission as they come.
The faculty opinion
Prof S.Sekharjit, Director of RIMS, who is from the first batch of RMC, now called the RIMS, gave a speech for the benefit of the students. In his dialogue he briefly mentioned the subject specialties for all types of post graduate and M.Ch studies and the various facilities that are offered in the institute. He praised the precious doctor pass outs from his college and stated that they had made the NE region and many different countries proud. There was a special mention on the importance of discipline and hard work.
It must have been a surprise for the students to hear him say that ragging was not a part of RIMS and a violator of this may have to undergo severe disciplinary actions. The students were told that they were free to approach the administration in such a case.
The speech was continued by Prof N. Damayanti, Head of Department of Anatomy, who felt bad that all the students could not gather for the meeting and insisted that even a single day missed is irreplaceable. The 1st MBBS has been condensed to about 1 year from 18th months and the Anatomy classes are already on and the students really need to be regular.
Library study may not be very effective it has to be supplemented by equipment, bones and books that are one’s personal collection said the Anatomy professor. Because of the influx of the post graduate students the administration is making supreme efforts to arrange hostel accommodation for the freshers.
Prof R.R.Singh, the Principal in charge of Dental College said that “there is no end of learning and disclosed that he is now in the learning process.”
Prof Jamuna Prof Jamuna , Principal of College of Nursing was also invited to speak and he said “the nurses and doctors are interdependent and a harmonious relation is a must for quality service to the patients”.
