Being in VMMC for the past 3 years, I feel I could answer your query. I can only share my experience at VMMC, you could probably compare it to someone from MAMC for a final decision.Besides all the superficial things like location, infrastructure, largest OPD and other stuff already mentioned well by my junior Gorangi, let me talk about academics, which really matter the most in a medical college.During your first proff, one believes they took the best decision in their life to come to VMMC. Academics- amazing, co curricular- even better. You proceed to second year and you realise this year forms the basis of your whole MBBS. Again academics- well and good, co curricular- couldn't get better. But as you go into clinical postings, you realise there is no schedule, discipline in teaching and you start finding ways to cope up. You move to next proff, well most of the clinical lectures don't take place, even for so important subjects like surgery and medicine. I must mention that there are a few professors who are really keen to teach, but there exist only a handful of them. The same staff that sit in clinics take your classes, and they definitely do not care about your classes. Result- you are left to yourself to study. You then search for alternative ways like going to coaching classes but clinics can never be taught in classrooms. As you move to final year, you realise you'll have to put so much effort with no support from the other side to learn. Eventually you do become a good doctor because well only the cream of country gets into a government college in Delhi, and they learn to cope up even in such an environment.Two more things- this is probably the condition of every government college in this country, but you can always get a first hand experience from someone studying in the specific college.Secondly, internal PG should now not be a criteria for your selection, because VMMC is probably getting merged into DU soon, so no PG benefit. Also, even we have to join coaching from third year itself, nothing unique to DU colleges.
And you can always contact me for any further information :)
