Meenakshi Academy of Higher Education and Research (MAHER)


MAHER, a flagship institute (Deemed to be University), is part of a very large conglomerate of India's top league education institutions under the Meenakshi Ammal Trust, a public charitable education trust, founded in the year 1983 by late Mrs. D Meenakshi Amal, a noted philanthropist and astute social leader of her time. Thiru. A. N Radhakrishnan, a core academician and a visionary leader, has been spearheading the Trust and all its educational institutions for over the last four decades with an incredible spirit. He is passionate about uplifting the marginalized sections of society through education. He has tirelessly and painstakingly worked to bring academic eminence to all institutions with deeply embedded values in their governance.

MAHER has long been established and known as an educational institution of the first choice for all its stakeholders. It promotes students' wellbeing and provides them with a perfect platform to take long strides into the future in the area of their deep aspiration and passion. It broke into the niche list of 100 top universities of India in the NIRF Ranking in the year 2019.

MAHER's distinctive and most striking feature lies in its extremely well-led medical, dental, nursing and allied health sciences programs. And this has continued to empower students with the latest clinical 'live' experiences in its state-of-the-art labs, enabled by top-class experienced faculty. The 'faculty of medicines' has fully loaded 1100 bedded hospital with 14 best-in-class operating theatres, equipped to take care of complex medical and surgical cases and emergencies.

MAHER continues to surge ahead in Research and Innovation. It is arguably the best university among health sciences institutions in the country, with over 130 patents published in a very short span of a couple of years. The institution maintains a faculty-to-student ratio of 1:8, which is perhaps the best in the country, fulfilling the students' dream of receiving personal attention to their learning. MAHER continues to attract top merited students and faculty across the globe and enjoys trust among its student community. The students from here get into promising careers and evolve as responsible citizens, and MAHER takes pride in contributing to the society.

Apart from undergraduate courses in the above institutions we also provide post-graduation and super speciality courses. Overall, MAHER offers around 21 courses for a large student community.

We have a very structured system within our administration for smooth functioning of Deemed to be University. There are five main governing bodies - Board of Studies, Academic Council, Planning and Monitoring Board, Finance Committee and the Board of Management.

Infrastructure and learning resources are one of MAHER’s greatest strength and we provide state of the art facilities for academic training, hospital services and other allied health support services. The Faculty of Medicine has an NABH accredited 1100 bedded hospital with 14 state of art operating theatres and is equipped to take care of all medical and surgical cases and emergencies. The hospital also has a separate section for transgender patients. Apart from routine medicine, we also have telemedicine, yoga medicine, music therapy and travel medicine

There are eight highly sophisticated lecture theatres, each with LCD projectors, public address systems, Smart Board and Interactive Board facilities and we also have the latest, highly sophisticated, well equipped laboratories for the use of faculty and students.

We have state of art library with more than 50,000 books apart from plenty of latest National, International and e- Journals.

We at MAHER Deemed to be University give paramount importance to research activities and we believe it is the key to solving the health problems of the future and for that we have established three central research laboratories, with a large number of research projects, funded by DST, DBT and ICMR. We have developed an envious oeuvre of over 1000 publications, 30normal patents, 20 designed patents, 50 copyrights and more than 40 textbooks with ISBN. All of our research work has been appreciated by National authorities like NAAC, NIRF and UGC.

It is evident from our repertoire that MAHER has grown significantly since its inception in 2004 and we continue to strive to provide the highest quality of education and research indiverse fields while at the same time supporting our poor community through grants and employment opportunities.

Chancellor's Message

Mr. A.N Radhakrishnan

A renowned humanitarian Mr. A.N Radhakrishnan is the guiding light of MAHER Deemed to be University. His concept of education, stress on research and commitment to instilling universal values has come together to shape MAHER Deemed to be University into an institution where the latest advancements and discoveries combine with compassion and service-mindedness. We can no longer afford to see these two streams of knowledge as flowing in opposite directions. In truth, they complement one another. If we merge these streams, we will find that we are able to create a mighty river-a river whose waters can remove suffering and spread life to all of humanity.” Leaving apart his personal details, here is the message that he wants to say to every student who want to be a doctor. As a student within the Faculty of Medicine: Undergraduate, Postgraduate or in Continuing Education; your comprehensive educational experience will involve a blend of basic sciences, Medical technology and clinical practice. You will have the opportunity to develop skills like critical analysis, reasoning and problem solving to help you either prepare for or develop further your professional future and your capacity for life-long learning. . It is my fervent appeal that all of you should utilize the learning, training and extracurricular facilities available in the campus to the utmost during your sojourn here as students and do well in your studies.
