Prathima Institute of Medical Sciences is the fulfillment of a long cherished dream of the Prathima group. The group, a vibrant conglomerate of varied interests and supported by transnational investors, has always viewed education as a natural platform to pursue its non-business agenda. And a healthcare institution, considering the medical background of many of its directors who are prominent doctors in the U.S., was always on top of the agenda.
PIMS is, to use a semi-medical phrase, a labour of love. Evident in every corner of its 30 acres of painstakingly developed, meticulously designed campus is the earnest desire tobuild an institution of excellence. Situated in Karimnagar, PIMS, nestling between two hillocks in the lap of rolling grounds and landscaped lawns, presents a very pastoral picture. And the 10,00,000sq.ft., complex of aesthetically created buildings housing the medical college, the hospital, the college of nursing, the hostels and dormitories , the staff quarters etc., completes the picture of a lotus, spreading the fragrance of knowledge, blooming in the mud.
Prathima believes the gift of life needs to be cherished. And protected. As a medical education and healthcare institution, Prathima regards this role of guardianship as sacrosanct. It is its very raison d'etre. It is a duty that needs to be rigorously learned and assiduously practised.
Prathima Institute of Medical Sciences primarily consists of a medical college where this duty is taught and a hospital where it is fulfilled.
PIMS is the only medical college having affiliation with Southern Illinois University School of Medicine, Spring Fields, Illinois, USA for student exchange programme for better quality medical education exposure globally at graduate level.
Prathima Institute of Medical Sciences is a good 780 bedded teaching hospital and is also attached to 350 bedded District Head Quarters hospital, Karimnagar for training & teaching Undergraduate and post graduate medical students.
