In my opinion, education is not an act of acquiring knowledge alone but learning a
skill to develop one’s personality and to lead quality life. This is an ennobling process of
growth. I feel that good education emancipates the minds of people and makes them free in
their thinking. Any plan of education should have a transformational process which not only
educates the student, but also prepares him or her for a better future. Our goal is to provide all
students an academic experience that is demanding, rigorous, and of the highest quality- yet,
one that is enjoyable and without compromising principles and values of higher education
and professional education.
Learning begins in the classroom, but it continues outside as you take the knowledge you have gained in your classes and translate it into real-world applications. Therefore the emphasis is not only on memorization, grades or class rank, but also on critical thinking through participation in hypothesis-driven project work, development of strong clinical skills in the case of paramedical students and dedication to responsible, professional behavior. Our plan also includes generating the ideas that provide solutions to our challenging public problems and to train exceptionally good public leaders.
I am very excited by the opportunity to participate in this innovative approach to education. The undergraduate program we provide in Genetics is first of its kind in Kerala State. This program will open a new horizon in the study of the present disease management as well as in checking the onset of a lot of diseases as most of them have genetic predisposition.
I am happy that many of the physiotherapists, audiologists, speech pathologists, geologists, social workers and computer experts working in and out of India are qualified from this college. I am sure that our college has already become internationally recognized centre of excellence.
