The Beginning

The Pondicherry Institute of Medical Sciences is the outcome of the vision of the Madras Medical Mission to create a medical school offering innovative medical education with international participation. The aim is to produce health professionals with a commitment not only to provide high quality medical care but also do research to prevent and alleviate disease processes. The hospital and college are set up in serene environment of greenery on the East Coast Road near seacoast, 12 miles north of Pondicherry town, the land of Auroville and Aurobindo Ashram enriched with French traditions. The then Honorable Home Minister of India Sri L.K.Advani laid the foundation of the hospital and college building on 12th July 2000. The Emergency Block was inaugurated on March 8, 2001 by the then Chief Minister of Pondicherry Thiru.P.Shanmugam and the hospital units started functioning from October 2001. All specialty departments of the hospital started functioning from January 2002.


In the first phase a hospital and college was developed within a span of two years to provide health care, community outreach programmes and medical education. The college and hospital spread across 45 acres of land close to the Bay of Bengal, has separate buildings constructed for Basic Sciences, outpatients and inpatients. The hostels for students are in the same campus which also has recreational facilities.

In the next stage of its growth, the hospital expanded to provide specialized treatment facilities in all super specialties and established a college of Nursing.

At present, the institution also offers postgraduate programmes in all disciplines with emphasis on education, research and treatment with international inputs to give the best care to the people from India and abroad. The hospital at present has 640 beds and is to be expanded to 1000 beds in the coming years.
