The life of a doctor is a tedious one. from endless hours of duty to beign updated about the latest advancements in medicine, there is little time to spare for other intrests. As a result, they end up spending a good deal of their time at the campus, which eventually becomes a second home to them. As for the building doctors, campus is their school school, their playground, their home and their life. Catering to both the doctors and the medicos, the campus with its vibrant ambience entertains and comforts their mind and soul.

When the students set foot in RIMS, they're just a bunch of ambitious folks.But their metamorphosis into dynamic doctors take place in this very campus, which has witnessed hundereds of men and women become some of the fitness doctors in the country and around the world. The sprawling campus includes an enormous college building, an even larger hospital and a multitude of other structures and facilities.

The Stadium was recently rebuilt to include stand for audiences which can seat a 1000 people at a time. The pedestrian walk which runs around the stadium is a favorite spot for joggers and casual walks for students and faculty alike.

For the nature lovers, we have a host of well maintained, lush green parks having a variety of Trees and shrubs, which are a delight to watch espically during the season of spring.

The major parks are The Rajendra Prak, Major Sankalp park, Sanjeevni park, Albert Ekka Park, Swami Vivekananda Park and the RIMS Circle. The students and the professors of RIMS have themselves donated a lot for plantations all over the campus, especially the parks where a majority of saplings and plants were planted with the help of donations made by students and doctors. A special mention in this regard is for Dr Sachindra Kumar, (2009) who has single handedly managed the Green Drive in RIMS.

There are two Auditoriums in the Campus, one being a Multipurpose Auditorium which hosts a number of seminars, functions and competitions. The Mini Auditorium serves as lecture theatre as well as a venue for small events and meetings.

A RIMS canteen which is open throughout the day, serves to satisfy the palate of the medicos. The Campus also boasts a coffee shop which is open till late at night and gives the medicos and doctors their much needed daily caffeine to work through their hectic daya and nights.

The institute boasts several clubs and societies which help the students to pursue their extra - curricular intrests and aim for a holistic progress for the students. These include a Quize Society, a Literary Society and a Movie Club.
