The Trust, under Dr. Shetty’s guidance, manages 19 diverse graduate, postgraduate, and diploma courses across nine affiliated colleges with Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences, Bangalore, and Mangalore University, Mangaluru. Furthermore, the Trust contributes to the community by operating the Blood Bank at Government Wenlock Hospital, clinical facilities in Physiotherapy and the Medical Laboratory at Government Lady Goschen Hospital. These facilities operate around the clock and provide free services to patients in need. Similarly, the clinical facilities of Physiotherapy and Speech and Hearing are also provided free of cost at Dr. M.V. Shetty Hospital.

Dr. Shetty’s founding vision was inspired by his father’s work at both the professional and community levels.
