Our unique curriculum is designed to create efficient professionals who can manage most clinical conditions with ease. Furthermore, students from Saveetha are placed first in most dental hospitals in India and the Middle east. We also have a career centre which facilitates career progression with various placements. We welcome students from all walks of life to maintain diversity within the campus. Our student services take tremendous efforts to ensure that each student gets individualised attention and a customised learning plan to enhance the quality of our training. From the first day of first year to the final day of graduation we have numerous programs to enhance student experience and bring out the best in them.
It may be hard for any student to believe such a bold claim. But its been over 7 years since we had any disciplinary proceeding taken due to ragging. The reason is simple psychology. Ragging begins as a get to know sessions that goes out of control when the crown gets bigger and behaves like a mob. Before things escalate to such levels we create an environment that foster interdependence between seniors and juniors. The first 3 days of college is organised into icebreaker sessions SU SWAGAT (Saveetha University Student Welfare and Gender Awareness Training Program) wherein senior and junior students join together to form multi-year teams so that the feeling of hierarchy is lost. They are given team building exercises and are encouraged to express their fears and comfort each other so that the new environment is not intimidating. The sessions aim to improve confidence, eliminate misogyny, understand the fears of new students and help each other out because we are part of a civilised society.
We also teach additional skills required for any young professional to survive in this competitive world. In the first 2 weeks students learn the basic of Biostatistics, Research Methodology, Evidence Based Dentistry, Digital tools in Dentistry (Photoshop, Movie making, Excel, Keynote and SPSS) courses. Students are awarded 4 certificates. These programs will empower you to manage your research independently. On the contrary, students who do not undergo this module spend thousands to get 3rd party help to do basic tasks for research and presentation. During internship we provide guest lectures on getting loans from banks, 1-to-1 sessions with successful alumni dentists, personality experts and many more life skills. We believe our responsibilities do not stop until we provide a good future for our students. All top corporate firms visit only SDC to recruit doctors for their hospitals. Students from Saveetha are paid around 2 times that of a regular graduate.
At Saveetha, many things apart from academics such as, speaking skills, patient management, patient care, treatment efficiency, CDE programs, participation in co-curricular activities, cultural activities, philanthropy, compassions, social awareness, political awareness, all passions in life (from cooking to dancing) are given credits to encourage the development of a holistic individual. Obviously it is not possible to master all the above-mentioned dimensions. But each of every talent of a student will not go unnoticed. As a student you will begin talking to Indian Dental Association (IDA) officials in your hometown within the first year !
We follow the MILA system of teaching wherein the class sessions are reduced to less than 20 minutes and upto an hour is spend on group learning with special focus on group expression skills. So everyday each student will need to articulate their thoughts to their peers. This practice over a long period of time will help you become an eleqoent public speaker. This will make you so confident that your own friends / family will be surprised by your transformation !
