Outreach Activities

Outreach services

Community outreach services outline the efforts that connect an organization’s ideas or practices to the public, include an educational component that engages the community and is linked to the university’s mission.

Mahatma Gandhi University of Medical Science and Technology (MGUMST) constantly promote activities for strengthening students and faculty in terms of Social Responsibilities towards neighborhood contributing to the holistic development of students and the society. Our mission is to develop a "dynamic, independent medical institution dedicated to provide high quality medical education & world class health services to the community".

In recent times the unequal distribution of healthcare services has proven to be a major challenge in public health management at rural India, hence through our outreach programs we aim to bridge this gap and serve all the classes of society at affordable prices.

Common Outreach Strategies employed by MGUMST

2. Participate in local festivals and community events to interact with the community, to raises awareness and to introduce your organization.
3. Partner your community in understanding the issues that affect them the most.
4. Target the leaders and influencers working on the ground.
5. Host Events, Trainings, and Seminars to appraise staff towards community teaching.
