Our institute offers education in an ethical and professional environment, ensuring that our students are given state of the art experiences of knowledge, skill and humane attributes. Emphasis is given to educate them according to our own social, cultural and religious context, keeping into consideration the evidence based current practices and problem based learning methodologies. Caution is taken not to adopt student centered approach, but a hybrid model is carved, to address out contextual needs, as most of our students have only twelve years of education, primarily taught through the traditional system.
