Clinical acumen with commitment is a fundamental cornerstone of medical practice. Advances in clinical care over the past 30 years have revolutionized and contributed to major therapeutic advances in many areas of medicine and surgery. The practice of health care has evolved and developed into a highly specialized field of medicine comprising a large body of knowledge that spans basic physical sciences to detailed clinical medicine. The mission of the residency program at Krishna Institute of Medical Sciences is to train residents to be highly qualified and fully capable clinicians. The scope of the training program is broad, offering residents experience in all aspects of clinical medicine, ranging from community hospital practice to highly subspecialized aspects of investigations including laboratory, cytopathology and imaging. All residents are involved in academic pursuits during their training, which includes research experience as well as teaching. Full time dedicated faculty for teaching and training of DNB trainees, well maintained library having many expensive journals, both hard copies and online, and internet connection are available in the campus while paying the residents prescribed stipend along with subsidized accommodation. Krishna Institute of Medical Sciences has 865 in patient beds with average consultations of over1000 patients registering every day in the outpatient departments.


The National Board of Examinations offers admissions in January and / or July of every year. All admissions to KIMS are granted in January session only except the Orthopedics department which admits residents in July session. Admission is available to both fresh M.B.B.S and Post Diploma graduates, the duration of training being 3 and 2 years respectively. Number of seats in a given department much depends on the eligibility of the teaching faculty, eligible guides and available senior residents for the Thesis program. In the broad specialties namely General Medicine, General Surgery, Anesthesiology, Radio diagnosis, Pediatrics, Respiratory Diseases, Microbiology, Orthopedics etc., the annual intake of students in each session (January / July) KIMS is awarded one to two seats each in Primary (M.B.B.S) and Secondary (Post Diploma) courses.

The residents will receive training in various specialties of Medicine, Surgery and other disciplines. Upon completion of the program, the resident will be prepared for clinical, academic or leadership roles and be able to demonstrate consultant abilities in the management of patient care.


Every resident is required to pursue a Thesis project during his/her residency training. To facilitate this process, during the first year of training the residents will be introduced to the basics of research; data collection, critical evaluation of information, critical reading of scientific literature and the basic principles involved in writing a manuscript including application of statistical tools. The first postgraduate year is a basic clinical training year. Residents rotate through all major clinical specialties with two blocks of clinical elective time. The major objective for this year is to consolidate and expand the clinical knowledge base and skills of the resident. This represents an opportunity to gain practical clinical experience in all the major areas of medicine and develop a better understanding of patient care issues. Residents are expected to attend the academic half day lectures and seminars and are assigned selected areas for self-directed study.

The next one / two years of the training program focus on developing the skills and acquiring the knowledge to become a fully qualified clinician. Each year is divided into eight-week rotations in the various specialties such as Nephrology, Neurology, Endocrinology, Pediatrics, Intensive Care Units, Neurosurgery, Cardiac Surgery, Orthopedics, Urology, Radiology etc., The training program is structured to give the residents core rotations in their respective chosen discipline in the first part of their training, followed by rotations in the more sub-specialized areas as their knowledge base expands and their interpretative and analytical skills develop. The program has established for all the residents to attend once a week, a General Academic Session to build a comprehensive knowledge base in other medical specialties, quality assurance, career management issues, research, medical ethics, legal aspects etc.,

Each resident is required to complete one research project (Thesis) during the course of the residency. This can range from a basic science project to a clinical research project. The Thesis should be completed and submitted to the NBE within stipulated time, 6 months before the theory examination. The candidate is eligible to appear for the theory examination only after approval of the Thesis by an external evaluation. An Institutional Ethics Committee constituted by the KIMS Foundation for Research Centre (KFRC) is in place to help residents select appropriate projects and to provide guides and mentors amongst the eligible staff for the Thesis projects.


Daily clinical rounds, journal club meetings, weekly grand rounds, visiting professors and frequent subspecialty rounds in all major subspecialties make up an integral part of the training program. Residents are encouraged to present clinical cases in the grand academic session on a weekly basis by rotation. Emphasis is placed on personal attributes of the residents such as communication skills, the ability to work well in a team, as well as strength in self-directed learning.


Local, Rural and Semi Urban Health Camps are organized by Krishna Institute of Medical Sciences under the auspices of the Government sponsored Arogyasri Program. Three camps are conducted every month in an average which are attended by the DNB Residents assigned by the respective Heads of Departments usually drawn from General Medicine, Cardiology, Orthopedics and Medical Oncology disciplines. The camps are held mostly on Sundays and the Residents are well compensated and remunerated. The Health camps attract about 100 to 150 patients on an average.


Daily supervision is provided by well qualified and experienced senior consultants with a focused interest in their respective fields. The junior consultants provide clinical supervision of patients, pre and post-procedural care, and provide on-going support. Teaching responsibilities will be to residents and technical staff at clinical meetings, lectures and in-service teaching. This may include supervision of residents for simple diagnostic procedures. Abundant clinical case material, library, literature, office space and secretarial support is available.
