Research Publications

“Research is to see what everybody else has seen and to think what nobody else has thought."- Albert Szent-Gyorgyi.
  • GKNM hospital has been catering health care services for over 70 years across various disciplines, making us a very fertile soil for research. We have been an academic institution for the past few decades not just in medicine and nursing but allied services which has helped us to constantly look out for new insights to fuel the new minds we educate. This in turn has played a vital role in research.  
  • We have been participants in over 50 global clinical trials in the last decade abiding out INDSTITUTES ETHICS COMMITTEE norms. Our trial experience has been in the departments of ONCOLOGY, CARDIOLOGY and CARDIO THORACIC SURGERY, while our participation in academic and multi centric studies reaches across all our major departments.  
  • Our goal is to initiate and elaborate on research from within starting from our nursing students to postgraduate trainees and all our consultant practitioners.  

Our research department works on two arms of research

  • Operational Research – to enhance the functional performance of the hospital
  • Medical Research – to support hypothesis and trends observed in our daily practice which   offers new insight to the world of science tomorrow
