I dont think that; 2850 MBBS seats in Tamil Nadu Private Medical Colleges are enough for the medical aspirants of this state.


Tamil Nadu government must do something to increase the institutions from the present lot of 24 Private Medical Colleges.

These institutions exist to choose from for pursuing MBBS course only for the NEET qualified candidates.

The oldest and prestigious private management institutions in Tamil Nadu are

  • Christian Medical College, Vellore
  • PSG Institute of Medical Sciences, Coimbatore
  • Sri Ramachandra Medical College & Research Institute, Chennai
