NAIHS is committed to produce quality health professionals in respective disciplines not only for army but for the nation as a whole at an affordable cost. Medical education is becoming expensive everywhere and is practically out of reach for most people. NAIHS has offered the opportunities of standard medical and health science education not only for deserving candidates from army (serving and retired) but also for the qualified civil candidates. "
