Welcome to the Govt. Medical College & Hospital, Chandigarh, website. This is a new Medical College which started with the intake of 50 students in 1991. Each year a batch of 50 students, is selected solely on the basis of merit at the Combined Entrance Test conducted by the Panjab University, gets admitted. The first twelve batches have already completed their 12 months compulsory rotating internship. Chandigarh had lacked an undergraduate medical institution since the PGI catered only for postgraduate and post-doctoral courses. This deficiency has been corrected with the start of this institution. Our emphasis is to provide teaching and training facilities of an exceptionally high standard to the medical students. This has amply been confirmed by their performance at various Panjab University examinations. A large number of our students have secured admissions to postgraduate courses at PGI, Chandigarh, AIIMS, New Delhi and through the All India PG Entrance Examination. They have also performed consistently well at interviews conducted by the UPSC, Armed Forces Medical Services and various state Public Service Commissions. In addition our students are also doing post graduation in Anaesthesiology,Anatomy,Pathology,Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Psychiatry, Pulmonary Medicine,ENT,Ophthalmology and Orthopaedics in our Institute.We hope to start PG in other subjects soon. A number of students have secured placements abroad, mainly in the USA, with high percentile marks in the USMLE examination. In addition to academic excellence, students of this College have consistently performed well at different cultural, literary and sports activities. The College has a highly qualified and dedicated faculty, both in basic and clinical departments. It has been recognised for the award of MBBS degree by Govt. of India, Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, w.e.f. 30.12.96, and has been included in the list of recognised Medical Colleges by the Medical Council of India.
Government Medical College & Hospital, Chandigarh, is the only hospital in the public sector committed to total computerisation, both for hospital management as well as in the administrative domain. The institution being developed is environment friendly as well as patient friendly. It has already started attracting a large number of patients not only from the Union Territory of Chandigarh, but from the neighbouring states as well. I would expect you to browse through various sections of this site and shall be grateful if relevant comments and/or suggestions are left behind.
