Christian Medical College Vellore

The Christian Medical College (CMC), Vellore was founded at the beginning of the 20th century by Dr. Ida Sophia Scudder for providing health care services to women and children in an India rife with superstitious beliefs, social demarcations, gender discrimination and very primitive health care. Her dream was not to start a medical college only, but to establish the Kingdom of God.
From its humble beginnings, CMC, Vellore is today a 2,500 bedded hospital with over a thousand medical doctors, training others to achieve excellence in the fields of education, research and patient care, in the spirit of Christ. CMC has completed 100 glorious years of undergraduate medical education. Presently there are postgraduate and super specialty courses in Medicine, Nursing, Allied Health Sciences and Hospital Management.

Distance Education Unit

The Distance education department was started in September 2004 as a response to the acute need for multi-competent specialists to meet the huge demand in the health sector. This was spear-headed by Dr. Vinod Shah who established the Distance education Unit and launched a “Refer Less, Resolve More” initiative in the form of a 2 year Post Graduate Diploma in Family Medicine (PGDFM). Eleven secondary level hospitals across the country functioning as contact centers under the supervision of national and international Family Medicine faculty form the pillars of this program. This program has been upgraded to the Master in Medicine (M.Med.) in Family Medicine affiliated to the Tamilnadu Dr. MGR Medical University, since 2013.
