Welcome to the Govt. Medical College & Hospital, Chandigarh, website. Chandigarh, an educational hub with many institutions of national and international repute, lacked an undergraduate medical institution which has been fulfilled with the establishment of this institution. Started in 1991 with an intake of 50 students, it now has been increased to 100 from year 2013. Students are selected solely on the basis of merit through a competitive exam. Our emphasis is to provide teaching and training facilities of an exceptionally high standard to the medical students. This young institution is now recognized in the region for its quality of education and has been ranked among top 25 medical colleges in India. It has become a preferred institution for undergraduate and postgraduate medical education for students seeking admissions through All India Quota.
Govt. Medical College & Hospital, Chandigarh, also offers undergraduate courses in many allied health sciences and postgraduate courses in Anaesthesiology, Anatomy, Dermatology, ENT, Forensic Medicine, General Surgery, Microbiology, Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Paediatrics, Pathology, Psychiatry, Pulmonary Medicine, Ophthalmology and Orthopaedics. We hope to start postgraduate courses in other subjects soon. In addition, a large number of our students secure admissions to postgraduate courses at PGIMER- 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. 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. Institution has a highly qualified and dedicated faculty, both in basic and clinical departments and have received recognition at both national and international level.
In healthcare services also it has set new standards and attracts a large number of patients not only from the Union Territory of Chandigarh, but from the neighbouring states as well. It has well developed services across all specialties and is now in the process of developing super-specialties to provide comprehensive healthcare facilities.
Government Medical College & Hospital, Chandigarh, is committed to continuous upgradation to provide highest standard medical education and healthcare. It is our endeavour to develop a model medical institution which is environment friendly as well as patient friendly. Total computerization, both for hospital management as well as in the administrative domain, is a step in this direction.
