Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur - ADMISSION NOTICE

The spectacular advancements in the realm of medical science & technology that our globe has witnessed in the recent decades have been largely possible because of a marriage between medicine & technology. Our mission is to provide a platform of interdisciplinary teaching and research in the field of medical science & technology, which can lead to a better integrated healthcare delivery system in India. To meet the challenges posed by medicine in the 21st century, the country needs a new breed of medical professionals who can work towards the fusion of medical science with technology and can bridge the two disciplines.

Our vision is to have a medical academic institute with a multi-specialty research centre at its core, with the motto of education and collaboration for biomedical research and development, alongside treatment and healthcare delivery.

School of Medical Science and Technology (SMST), Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur offers a 3 years post graduate program - Masters in Medical Science and Technology (MMST) for MBBS graduates.
