History Maulana Azad Medical College
The history of Maulana Azad Medical College could be traced to 1936, when India was under British rule. During that time, Indian Medical Service was being heavily manned by the British. In 1940, Martin Melvin Curickshank of the Indian Medical Service (IMS) [a British national], was appointed Medical Superintendent Irwin Hospital and Chief Medical Officer of New Delhi. He was appointed specifically to establish a medical college complex near Ramlila Ground.
But before his plans could come to fruition, the Second World War started in 1939, and the plan of a new medical college had to be dropped. During the Second World War, some barracks were rapidly constructed near Safdarjung’s tomb to establish a medical center for American troops fighting in this region. This hospital was well equipped, with x-ray machine, a laboratory, and other facilities for various emergency procedures. After the Second World War was over, America handed over the college to Government of India. Now, the college is home to Safdarjung Hospital. It was to be taken over as an extension of Irwin Hospital, but later CGHS took ownership for it to directly be run by the Central Health Ministry. Today, the grave of the Mughal era poet, Momin, lies near the parking area near the college.
Maulana Azad Medical College offers the degrees of MBBS (medical school degree, equivalent to Doctor of Medicine or MD in some countries), post graduate/residency degrees of MS, MD and superspeciality/subspecialty fellowship degrees of MCh and DM. It has attached schools offering degrees in nursing and pharmacy. The Maulana Azad Medical College campus houses Lok Nayak Hospital, GB Pant Hospital, Guru Nanak Eye Centre and also has the Maulana Azad Institute of Dental Sciences.
