The Focus of our University is ‘Learner Centric’. Today our endeavor is to prepare the students for life and careers in a rapidly changing world. Technology has given us many options for real-time and virtual interaction through various mobile devices. Our University also has a customized learning management platform called ‘My DY’ which is an open digital online platform where students and faculty interact with one another. The students also experience engaging learning, training, coaching and mentoring sessions from the best, brightest and highly qualified faculty in the University through webinars, webcast and video conferencing in the Virtual Classrooms.
The University has a reputation for providing high-quality academic teaching and training and has received ‘A’ grade which is the highest grade by the ‘National Assessment & Accreditation Council’ (NAAC).
The University uses Simulation technology which has set new standards in Education especially in Medical Education. Medical simulation has become a supplement to ward-based bedside learning. Medical Simulation uses personnel devices and technology to mimic scenarios as observed in real patients and in various disease conditions. This helps undergraduate and postgraduate students to learn and acquire skills in diagnostic and invasive therapeutics without compromising the autonomy and safety of a real patient.
