Government Medical College Amritsar is one of the oldest premier medical education institutes of the country. It traces its foundation as a Medical School in Lahore as early as 1864 and later being established in Amritsar in 1920. The college has a cherished history and earned for itself a place of pride in the field of medical education and patient care in the region.
The college website is part of conscious effort of this old yet vibrant institution in order to be a part of the technological and electronic revolution.
We set out to incorporate information technology by spearheading the setting up of an Information Technology Centre (ITC) in 2003 that generated an enthusiastic response both from the teaching faculty and students. The Centre also houses telemedicine equipment, a VSAT linkage and networks with other premier health and health informatics institutes of the country.
The modernization drive of the college has broader dimensions. The college has been chosen for upgradation under the Pradhan Mantri Swasthya Suraksha Yojana. In addition to upgrading the existing departments, this project envisages modern buildings - Bebe Nanaki Centre for Mother & Child Care and the Guru Teg Bahadur Diagnostic and Superspeciality Block. In addition the College of Nursing and the Swami Vivekananda Deaddiction Centre are nearing completion and will start functioning soon.
