A warm welcome from D. Y. Patil Education Society – An Institution Deemed to be University, Kolhapur

Higher Educational Institutions (HEIs) can no longer be considered isolated ivory towers of academic excellence, where learning and skill development are domains of scholars alone. In fact, an HEI is now more of a universe of teams working in unison to disseminate and create knowledge that benefit people and planet.

To me, education is a definitive path to empower society through enlightened, skillful and socially relevant citizens. We, at D.Y. Patil Education Society – Deemed University, are committed to giving society trained and motivated graduates who will serve with compassion, competence and commitment. The ambience and culture of the university fosters self-directed learning and promotes students to become lifelong learners capable of working with cutting edge technologies in challenging environments with service to humanity as their goal.

This University was established in the year 2005 with the objective to develop healthcare professionals focusing on preventive, curative, promotive as well as rehabilitative aspects of health. Over the years, the University has developed itself to impart quality education and deliver class healthcare services, establishing itself as an excellent ‘Centre of Learning’. Our graduates from medical, nursing and interdisciplinary sciences are proudly serving society across countries and continents. We plan to expand our Academic Programmes offerings in allied and non-allied health science disciplines, so as to bring educational facilities of the top order together at one place. In due course of time, the university plans to introduce the programs in areas of emerging sciences and technology like artificial intelligence, machine learning, big data analytics, as well as in other disciplines viz. management, basic and social sciences.

The 800 bed multi-specialty Dr. D.Y. Patil Hospital of the university provides most modern healthcare including critical care and emergency services to the population at large, besides imparting clinical training to the students. The credibility of the systems and services has seen a large increase in the numbers of patients seeking treatment making it one of the apex health institutions of the region. This in itself is a testimony to the care rendered by our doctors, faculty, staff and students.

It is our constant endeavour to facilitate and enable each and every student, staff and faculty member to reach their maximum potential. To that end, we regularly modify the curricula including introduction of competency based curriculum, adoption of newer methods of teaching-learning, provision of learning spaces with state-of-the-art facilities, improved assessment systems and integration of technology in academic as well administrative processes. Addressing health and social issues of nearby urban and rural areas find priority in our community outreach programmes.

Improvement being a continual process, we are committed, as always, to improve our teaching-learning, healthcare and service delivery processes. I invite you to take a closer look at our services and hope for collaborative partnerships.

I welcome all the students who chose to be a part of this premier University. I am sure that you will be proud to be associated with us and will make us equally proud with your academic achievements, professional contribution and social relevance. I also invite prospective students and their parents, who plan to embark on the higher education journey from upcoming academic session, to begin their lifelong learning by becoming a part of this institution of excellence.
