Kings International Medical Academy is once again on the headlines

Yes, you read that right!

Long story short, after completing medical studies abroad, students had to undergo an internship program at a fee of Rs. 3,54,000 at Dr. MGR Medical University. Undeniably, this posed major monetary stress on pockets for the students.

That’s when Dr. David K Pillai met the Health and Family Welfare Minister of the state, honourable Ma. Subramanian and handed over a requisition letter to him for lowering the fee.

However, even after more than 3 months, the G.O has not been issued. An attention-grabbing demonstration was held on behalf of the Tamil Nadu Medical Students Association (TNMSA FMG WINK) and Doctors Association for Social Equality (DASE) yesterday (2nd) in Valluvar Kottam, Chennai.
