Ahmedabad, May 26 (IANS) The Pramukhswami Medical College at Karamsad in central Gujarat has received the accreditation from the National Accreditation Board for Laboratories (NABL) for all its laboratories. “This is an honour for the institution and a recognition of the high quality standards followed by it. We realise that it also places greater responsibility on our shoulders, to maintain these standards and to keep improving on them,” said Amrita Patel, chairman of Charutar Arogya Mandal, which manages the medical college at Karamsad in Anand district, 73 km from here.
