Kempegowda Institute of Medical Sciences was established in the year 1980 by the Vokkaligara Sangha and is affiliated to Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences, Bangalore, Karnataka.
The Vokkaligara Sangha took a formal decision on 2.9.1979 to start a medical college from the year 1980-81 and applied for permission to the Registrar, Bangalore University.
On 30.11.1980 the Hon'ble Chief Minister Shri. R Gundu Rao laid the foundation stone of the Kempegowda Institute of Medical Sciences and Hospital in the premises of the Sangha and announced the grant of vacant land in Banashankari to be used for the construction of college building and hostels. Thereafter, the Sangha appointed Dr M Basavaraju, Professor of Physiology as the principal on 1.1.1981 and other staff by March 1981 and classes were started regularly from the 16th of March 1981. Since then 16th March is observed every year as KIMS Day. The Silver Jubilee Celebrations of the Institute was held in the year 2006.
A Magnificent college building to mark the centenary celebrations of the Vokkaligara Sangha and the Silver Jubilee of KIMS has been built at the Banashankari Campus. The emblem of KIMS consists of a central wand with entwined snakes symbolizing the Greek and Roman Gods of Health called Hermis & Mercury, a symbol of modern medical science. The tower at the top depicts one of the four towers erected by Sri. Magadi Kempegowda, the founder of Bangalore city who had erected these towers in all four directions to mark the boundaries of the city of Bangalore which still exists as tourist spots, though the city has grown beyond these limits. The motto SATHATHA SEVA THATHPARATHE inscripted in Kannada language proclaims the goal in the life of every KIMS graduate meaning "Always devoted to the service". The Vokkaligara Sangha was founded in the year 1906 to promote social, cultural and educational aspirations of the agricultural community of the erstwhile Mysore State. For 60 years, the Sangha was running a hostel called "Vokkaligara Hostel", which was providing hostel facilities for all communities. Many distinguished officers, educationists and political leaders of Karnataka hailing from rural areas made use of this hostel facility during their educational career.
