This is acknowledgement of our unswerving commitment to quality and excellence in medical and health sciences education, research and patient care. In particular, our top scores under the parameters of faculty competence, research and innovation and industry interface are proof of the dedicated efforts of our highly qualified faculty to continuously update curriculums and pedagogies. At SRIHER, research is a high priority area and several of our faculty have published papers in high impact journals. In addition we have research collaborations with institutions of repute within India and abroad. Moreover SRIHER has established an Innovation and Incubation Center with funding support from Govt. of India to incubate 18 start-up companies in healthcare technology.
