About Our Colleges

Changing the World

The Dr.M.V. Shetty Memorial Trust was founded in 1985. Dr M. Ram Gopal Shetty, the founder took inspiration from his father Dr. M Venugopal Shetty, who was eminent in several fields, in Surgery, Rehabilitation and the state-run institution of Home Guards. He was known to combine professional integrity with a high degree of social commitment. Dr. M R Shetty himself has been closely associated with the academic bodies of Mangalore and Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences, since their inception and has been a member of the executive board of the Rehabilitation Council of India (RCI).


Dr.M.R. Shetty and the Board of Trustees had a clear purpose, vision and philosophy in relation to vocation-based degree courses. Dr. Shetty identified the lack of higher-level degree courses in Allied Health and other vocation-based educational sectors. This drove him to establish high quality institutions providing holistic education in the green and healthy environs of Kavoor in the northern part of the port city of Mangalore. Mangalore itself has become an educational hub, served well by air, sea and road transportation with a strong cultural base and an enlightened citizenry.


Quality Education

Dr.M.V. Shetty Memorial Trust  is the pioneer of paramedical degree programmes. Among the firsts achieved by the Trust since 1987 were the first Nursing college at B.Sc. and M.Sc. levels under private management, the first B.P.T and M.P.T degree college and the first BASLP and MASLP self-financing institution in the State. All these have progressed to doctoral level. Other courses include MLT (Medical Lab Technology) at UG and PG levels, a post graduate degree (MSW) course in Social Work, a B.Ed. programme in Education, a diploma course in General Nursing (GNM), Diploma course in medical laboratory technology (DMLT) and a post graduate Diploma in Classical dance (Bharatanatyam). The Trust manages 15 different graduate, post graduate, Doctoral and Diploma programs in 7 colleges affiliated either to Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences or Mangalore University


Outreach to the community proceeds at many levels, such as operating the Blood Bank at Government Wenlock and Lady Goshen hospitals with supportive Lab facilities, the conduct of free camps in Mangalore and the rural hinterland, free treatment for patients at our clinics and incorporation of eco-friendly and professional involvement at all the centers and institutions, we associate with be they schools, hospitals or NGO’s. Our placement and recruitment record has been noteworthy, with alumni positioned in key posts or notable entrepreneurial concerns around the globe.
