PUDUCHERRY, India--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Sri Manakula Vinayagar Medical College, one of India’s leading institutions to train new doctors, has partnered with Kaplan Medical, a unit of global educational services provider Kaplan, to improve medical education outcomes and bolster clinical readiness. The partnership will leverage Kaplan’s renowned virtual remediation and assessment resources to benefit both faculty and students.

As part of the partnership, Kaplan is offering comprehensive resources to SMVMCH helping the school align with the new curriculum guidelines set forth by the National Medical Commission, the Indian regulatory body that regulates medical education and medical professionals, while also preparing students for successful outcomes on the NExT examination. While the partnership will open avenues for domestic success, it will additionally allow students to pursue international opportunities; Kaplan also prepares students for the USMLE®, a series of exams that students must pass to practice medicine in the United States.

"We are proud to partner with Kaplan, a pioneering leader in medical education.

Together, we will empower our students with a comprehensive suite of resources that not only enhances their academic prowess, but also cultivates the critical thinking skills and clinical acumen necessary for future success. Our shared vision of shaping the future of medical education on the Subcontinent will enable students to excel in their studies and improve the landscape of healthcare," he said.

"We are excited about working with Sri Manakula Vinayagar Medical College, an institution known for its dedication to quality medical education, and its students, to help build India’s future physician workforce," said Nicholas Valentino, executive director of international programs, Kaplan.

Together, we will empower aspiring doctors to thrive, innovate, and lead.”

The partnership comes at a time as Sri Manakula Vinayagar Medical College is proactively focusing on standardizing curriculum and preparing its students for global career pathways in medicine.
