Selection of MMS was similar to the admission criteria laid down by the KDU for other degree courses and the Z score applicable to the other medical schools will be followed with additional criteria required by the three forces. The additional criteria include Physical characteristics.
KDU wishes to implement an equal gender ratio policy once the buildings are completed and logistics constraints are removed. As the first step FOM/KDU will enlist female cadets for the Intake 30.
