It isn’t called “Center of Excellence” for no reason. With one of the best infrastructure, it provides the students with precious opportunities to enhance their practical knowledge. The teachers here are qualified enough to make the difficult medical studies easier. They create a student-friendly environment. The non-teaching staff is equally co-operative. The students get to learn clinical skills from the greatly experienced doctors of the hospital. Canteen and the anatomical garden are good stress-relievers. It is a privilege to be a students of this institute."
Gujarat Adani Institute of Medical Sciences is an epitome of “Rapid Growth”. Be it administration, Faculty, campus or hostel facilities. It has improvised every single year. It encourages its students, provides them opportunities to com3eout with flying colors. We foresee it as the “Center of Par Excellence”"

I am writing this because I think owe an act of deference to this college. It has provided the medical education in the best way, by all means possible. This institution with the best practical labs and theory sessions from well qualified faculties, in its state of the art infrastructure and its ample collection of books in the library, has provided a vast source of knowledge in a very nimble manner not only by providing the basic facilities but also WiFi on campus to lovely gardens to indoor and outdoor library and an equipped gym to a safe, sound and lovely campus, this institutions, I would say is surely different. I hope this college makes its mark among the best medical colleges in the country very soon. I am thankful to anyone who is a part of this institute and glad to be a part of it."
I am from the Pioneer Batch (Batch 2009) of the GAIMS. Few things I would like to quote about GAIMS is, it's not just a medical institute, GAIMS is a family. After passing 12th Science, the place where I could get equal opportunity for personal, educational, professional, emotional & psycho-social development is GAIMS. Here I learnt & developed all the skills from dealing with my self-confusions to dealing with patients. Far from the home, it's like another home. Self-confidence of tackling with this competitive world can truly achieved at GAIMS. Scheduled academic administration & quality education from each & every faculty members helped a lot for understanding basic & higher medical knowledge. Memories made here with my all colleagues, juniors, seniors & all GAIMS related persons are lifetime treasure for me."
The idea of GAIMS reflects the visionary brilliance of Shri Gautam Adani. The exceptional education of the institute and the hospital with its dedicated and trained staff will exceed all expectations. I have no doubt that GAIMS will soon become the medical capital of Kutch."
