JIPMER has emerged as one among the top best five medical institutes in the country and is poised to become the global giant in health sector. JIPMER is unique in providing best health care facilities of all broad specialties and super specialties free of cost to the community. It caters to the need of all strata of the society, from the poorest of the poor to the most affordable one. JIPMER is the number one center in the country in medical education and training and has been recognized by MCI as the center of excellence in medical education. We also wish to make JIPMER the top most institute in medical research. JIPMER has celebrated Golden Jubilee last year and is well equipped to march to the pinnacle of its glory. I wish all stake holders (students, staff, public, policy makers and well-wishers) to participate wholeheartedly in fulfilling this golden aspiration and as head of the institute. I convey my best wishes to all.
