Pravara Institute of Medical Sciences - Deemed University

THE Genesis - For the Cause of Humanity.

About University  | The Philosophy | The Genesis 


While working with the rural masses, Vithalrao Vikhe Patil realized the urgent need for organized activities in many social areas to build healthy, industrious and prosperous society. A comprehensive rural health care model was the natural consequence of this realisation. In a society where health care facilities were inadequate and inaccessible to the poor, the Pravara Medical Trust - the parent body of this DEEMED UNIVERSITY was established in 1972 in a village called Loni.

The trust was founded with the objectives - to provide quality health care to the rural people, - to train medical and paramedical manpower in formal education, - to demystify medicine through training community groups to coup up with their health problems, - to conduct research leading to improving "quality of life" of people.
