Vardhman Mahavir Medical College was established at Safdarjung Hospital in November 2001. Padma Shree Dr. Jagdish Prasad is the founder Principal of the college.
The foundation stone of the medical college was laid by our then Honourable Prime Minister Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee on 17th December 2001 in presence of the then Honourable Home Minister Shri L.K.Advani and Honourable Health and Family Welfare Minister Dr. C.P. Thakur . On 20th November 2007 Shri M. Hamid Ansari ,our Honourable Vice President has dedicated the Vardhman Mahavir Medical College building to the nation in the presence of Honourable Minister of Health & Family Welfare Dr Anbumani Ramadoss.
The first batch of MBBS students joined the college in February 2002 and they have completed their MBBS and even joined various PG courses in this year . Six batches have joined till now. The college has recognition by the Medical Council of India.
The college is affiliated to Guru Govind Singh I P University, Delhi. From 2008 onwards the post graduate courses are also affiliated to GGSIP University which were with Delhi University till now..
Although the college began on a very modest note on infrastructure carved out of the portions of the Safdarjang Hospital, today it is housed in a state of art centrally air-conditioned building . We have a separate Library building also with excellent collection of Medical books , Journals and Internet facility. Not only with regard to material infrastructure, the college has a very competent faculty in the pre, para clinical and clinical disciplines. The faculty consists of over 295 doctors who are highly qualified in their respective fields, possessing post-graduate qualifications . It is needless to emphasize that large number of the faculty members are of national and international repute with research papers, books publication and editorship of the journals to their credit. Some of the faculty members are the members of the executive bodies of the National/international Association/Academy and few of them are holding elected offices of the president of such associations. A large number of training workshops (including WHO workshops), CME’s seminars are being conducted here. Research activities of the highest order are under taken in all the disciplines of medicine and our institute is a centre for the research projects of ICMR, CSIR and WHO in some of the departments.
