According to KIMS Director Dr. Ramalingappa Antaratani, the addition of these courses will increase the quality of health care delivered by these departments.
“We are delighted that KIMS has been granted permission to offer these super speciality courses. This is a momentous occasion for KIMS.

And we received approval to start cardiology and gastroenterology courses, and we are hopeful that we will receive approval to offer super-speciality courses in CVTS,” Dr Ramalingappa stated
According to Ramlingappa, KIMS is the state’s second government-run institute to offer a surgical gastroenterology degree. According to the Director, KIMS will provide two seats in both courses beginning this academic year.
