Farthest along the stretch is the NAMS house, the official building of the National Academy of Medical Sciences, which is a prestigious body of eminent doctors from across India.Every year AIIMS accepts 72 Indian students, of which 37 belong to general category, 19 belong to Other Backward Classes (OBC), 11 belong to Scheduled Castes (S.C.) and 5 belong to Scheduled Tribes (S.T.) based on the results of an all-India entrance examination for its undergraduate M.B.B.S program. The number of students who take the entrance exam every year varies from 80,000 to 100,000. The acceptance rate for admission to the undergraduate course (medical school) is thus 72/90000 i.e. 0.08%.
One international student (nominated by Government of India from SAARC nations) completes the class size of 73. AIIMS also specialises in paramedical and basic science training for its undergraduates. AIIMS is one of the few institutions where the faculty-student ratio is much better than the norm.
