ACADEMIC MONITORING CELL
Academic Monitoring Cell (AMC) is an important initiative in strengthening the academic structure of the University. It is a proactive intervention to promote academic excellence in the affiliated institutions. It is hoped that this program will instil renewed enthusiasm in the academic scenario of the University. As per the instruction from University an institutional academic committee was constituted to review the academic progress of the students. The primary objectives are to meet periodically and make objective assessment of ongoing academic programs such as examination, syllabus covered and constitute guidelines as per KUHS instruction and also to formulate steps and actions to rectify defects and inadequacies through feedbacks and discussions. A college council is also formed to monitor the activity of academic monitoring committee, and other academic activities in the college. Including the making of academic calendar for each academic year, teaching plan, faculty improvement programs etc
PARENT TEACHERS ASSOCIATION
The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is a partnership between parents and educators who strive to enhance student learning and enrich the lives of the students within the college. It is also a forum for parents to obtain knowledge and voice their opinions about what is happening in their college. There are innumerable benefits associated with the PTA in our institution. One of the greatest benefits associated is that it helps teachers to understand students from the parent’s perspective and vice versa. It helps parents to know all about the functioning of the college, problems and so on. It works towards making the college better and the best place to get a quality education. In this, it is the teachers and the parents that sit together and discuss various issues regarding college and even a particular student. The overall aim of the PTA meeting is to ensure the institution offers the best learning experience for the students keeping in mind their needs.
In our institution, the general body of the Parent Teachers Association (PTA) is met twice in every year; one at the beginning of the academic year and the other at the end. Further, Class PTA meetings are held twice in a year following their internal examinations. Parent- Teacher –Student Meetings are also convened in connection with these meetings.

STUDENTS SUPPORTIVE AND GUIDANCE PROGRAM (SSGP)
Kerala university of Health Sciences put forward a holistic student supportive program that aims to shape up every student entering the institution into a health professional who owns technical and social skills to perform various academic activities. Our institution is focusing on holistic development of students by addressing their issues like academic and scholastic issues, psycho-social issues, physical and reproductive issues. There are two Nodel faculty members in our institution for detecting early and preliminary intervention of issues faced by students. Guidance and counselling are considered as an effective tool for the early intervention of academic issues as well as emotional disturbances faced by students, for that our college introduced a mentor and mentee program, each student is assigned to each faculty for their support and guidance. This will improve overall performance of students.
