Gandhi Medical College came into being on 14th September 1954 AD. This was the second medical college in the erstwhile state of Hyderabad. The Osmania medical college was the first medical college in the Hyderabad state having started as a medical school in 1846 AD and made a college in 1926 AD. There were two medical colleges in Andhra region of erstwhile Madras State at that time. First was Andhra medical college at Vishakapatnam which started in 1923 AD and Guntur medical college was the second in that region having opened in 1946 AD. There were three other medical colleges in Madras State, which accepted students from Andhra region. They were Madras medical college which is now known as Chennai medical college and Research Institute and it started in 1835 AD to be followed closely by Stanley medical college in 1838 AD. 1835 AD was the beginning of allopathic medical education in the country and Calcutta medical college was started first in the same year few months earlier to that of Madras medical college. Christian medical college at Vellore was opened in the year 1942 AD. Thus Gandhi medical college was the second in Hyderabad State, fourth in Andhra Pradesh and 29th in the country. Gandhi is celebrating its golden jubilee this year and now there are 162 recognized medical colleges in India with an annual intake of 18385 seats. Another 36 colleges were permitted to be opened in the country with annual admissions totaling 3750 seats in these new colleges. Thus annual undergraduate medical admissions are over 22000 in India. Intake of students to Gandhi medical college per year is 150 for MBBS Degree Course. Postgraduate seats are 88 per year, which includes clinical, non-clinical and super specialty subjects.
