Admission Notices

    T.D. Medical College is the 1st Medical college in the state which was started under Private Management . This Medical college is situated in the suburban area of Vandanam, 9 km south of the Alappuzha (previously Alleppey) town, facing the NH 47, in Alappuzha district of Kerala State, South India. The initials T.D. stand for Thirumala Devaswom, which in Sanskrit means belonging to the Lord of Thirumala, since this Medical College was started in 1963 under the patronage of the T.D. Temple at Anantha Narayana Puram of Alappuzha.

    The first batch of MBBS classes were started in August 1963 for 50 students. The Kerala government had agreed to upgrade the district headquarters hospital at Alappuzha and handed it over to the Medical College management, to be used as teaching hospital for the medical students and Government Order No.G.O.(MS).263/73/HD dt. 23rd October 1973 was issued accordingly. Thus this became the 4th Government Medical College in the state.. T.D. Medical College is a rapidly growing Medical College in the state as a centre of excellence in every field of modern medicine. This is the lone Medical College in the state which would have the Medical College and College Hospital on the side of National Highway.

    Due to the objection raised by the Kerala University in running the medical college in this state collecting capitation fee from the students, the T.D.M.C. management ran into financial problems and the Kerala Government came forward for their help and took over the management of the institution from 17th October 1967 for a period of five years initially, under an agreement executed between the T.D.Medical College Trust and the Government. Since the T.D.Medical College Trust did not come forward to take back the management of the college at the end of the stipulated initial five year period, as per conditions in the agreement, the college became vested with the Government of Kerala from17th October 1972 and Government order No.G.O.M.S.263/73/HD dt. 23rd October 1973 was issued accordingly. Thus this became the 4th Government Medical College in the state. Since no compensation whatsoever was paid to the T.D.M.C.Management by the Government during take over, the name T.D.Medical College is still retained in the records.

    The number of seats for the M.B.B.S course in T.D. Medical College, Alappuzha was 50 to begin with. It was raised to 100 in 1967. But as per the recommendation of the Indian Medical Council, the number was again reduced to 80 in 1973. It was again raised to 100 as per the recommendation of the Indian Medical Council in 1979.Now the number of seats has raised to 150 from the academic year 2007-08 onwards. Post Graduate Course in Medicine and Surgery (2 seats each) were started in the year 1982-83 and Paramedical Course for MLT was started in the year 1985-86 with 15 seats. Diploma Course in Pharmacy was also started with 35 seats and later it increased to 40 seats.
