Government Chengalpattu Medical College - GCMC

The history of the Chengalpattu Medical College dates back to days before 1965 when this was a District Head Quarters hospital with its building in the town. In 1965, the Government of Tamil Nadu upgraded this District Headquarters hospital as a teaching institution with 250 beds for clinical training. Vedachalam Mudaliar, the then Chairman of Chengalpattu Municipality, donated a vast area, which is in pocession of this institution today. To begin with, this institution had an annual admission of 50 students, which the institution maintained till 2012. 100 students will be admitted from the academic year 2012-13 onwards. This 46-year old institution was the 6th of its kind to be started in Tamil Nadu. The college initially trained D.M. & S. students, who had passed out of Kilpauk Medical College, for the Condensed MBBS Course. Girls students were first admitted in the year 1970 and the first batch of M.B.B.S.graduates of the college left in 1972. The hospital, at its dawn, was functioning with the basic departments which include medicine, surgery, obstetrics and gynaecology, pediatrics, orthopedics, ophthalmology, otolaryngology, psychiatry and chest clinic. As days went by, other departments started functioning one by one, thus, making the hospital a tertiary care center with multi specialty approach. The specialties presently functioning are neurology, cardiology, nephrology, pediatric surgery, plastic surgery, urology, neurosurgery, etcetera.
