Serving a mix of both urban dwellers and those from the rural north, Bangalore Baptist Hospital provides comprehensive preventive and curative care in the full spectrum of specialties. The hospital staff speaks English and all charting and teaching is conducted in English. Translation for non-English speaking patients is readily available. Students are provided housing in a modern hostel.
Education is a major focus of the institution, and students learn to rely on clinical skills and judgment rather than on technology. They select a particular specialty department and participate in all related aspects of patient care. Students will also participate in formal learning activities, including hospital-wide teaching sessions, didactic conferences, case presentations and interactive sessions with attending physicians.
