Admission Notices

    The King George's Medical College, Lucknow, India is one of the oldest and reputed medical colleges in the country. Situated in the old city on the bank of River Gomti, the college serves the role of integrating modern medicine into the resource deficient environment of a developing country. KGMC is a constituent college of the University of Lucknow and is committed to the three basic objectives of providing quality medical education, health care services and research. In 1870, the Maharaja of Vijaynagaram first floated the idea of starting a medical college in Lucknow and offered to donate Rs 3 lacs, but due to paucity of funds this was not passed by the Government and the dream of the Maharaja could not take shape. It was in 1905 that, to commemorate the visit of Prince of Wales to India, the Raja of Jehangirabad and Sir Taussuduq Rasool requested the Raja of Ayodhya to persuade Sir James LaTouche, Lt Governor of United Provinces (now Uttar Pradesh) to recommend the establishment of the medical college to the Governor of India. This time the Government gave its sanction but with the condition that the people of United Provinces raise a sum of Rs 8 lacs. The fund raising activities were completed within a few months, notable contributors being Maharaj of Balrampur, Maharaj of Ayodhya, Raja of Jehangirabad, Rana Sheoraj Singh and Nawab Yusuf Ali. The Government of India was then informed of the collection and the Prince of Wales laid the foundation stone on 26th December 1906 on a plot of land donated by UP Government on the bank of River Gomti, where once stood the beautiful Macchi Bhawan. Lt Governor Sir James Latouche took an active part in the planning of this project. Sir Swinton Jacob, the famous architect designed the building in Indo- Saracenic style, so as to blend naturally with the minarets and monuments of this 'nawabi' city.

    The medical college was formally opened in October 1911, the year when His Majesty King George V and Queen Mary visited India, by the then Lt. Governor of United Provinces - Sir John Prescott Hewett. Every year since 1916, the 'topper' of the Final Professional Examination is decorated with the 'Hewett Medal' in honor of the man who opened the portals of the college to 'Georgians'. Dr KS Nigam was the first Hewett medallist of this college. Col. W Selby was the first Principal and Professor of Surgery and Lt. Col. CA Sprawson was the first physician. To start with the total faculty consisted of 5 professors and 2 lecturers. On the advice of the General Medical Council of Great Britain, a framework of admissions and courses of study was organised. Initially, the college was affiliated to the Allahabad University. The first hospital associated with King George's Medical College was built in 1914, and was called King George's Hospital.. The funds allocated to the college could hardly be expected to cover the cost of a hospital on a comparable scale. Thus this task was undertaken by the Government of India. The building was again designed by Sir Swinton Jacob after making a spot study of great medical centres in Europe and adapting it the needs of this country. It was ready in time for the clinical training of the first batch of students in 1914. A 226 bed hospital was formally inaugurated by the Viceroy Lord Harding on the 10th January 1914. In his speech the Viceroy reaffirmed the confident hope of the King Emperor that the college and its apparatus would be the 'best in the East'. To select the hospital equipment, Major Selby spent several months in England, interviewing manufacturers and inspecting their apparatus.

    The first postgraduate examination in Medicine and Pathology was held in 1918. The King George's Medical College and associated King George's Hospital were formally transferred under the Lucknow University in 1921, on the establishment of the University of Lucknow and the campus had the privilege of hosting the first convocation of the University on 30th October, 1922. In the year 1931, great need was felt of a women's hospital. The Queen Mary's hospital across the Shahmina Road was built and formally inaugurated on 4th November 1932 with a bed strength of 52. In 1951, a 3 storied building called Gandhi Memorial Hospital was constructed for medical cases with a bed strength of 144. It was at this stage that the name King George's Hospital was changed to Gandhi Memorial & Associated Hospitals. In 1955 another block housing the Children's Hospital was added. Yet another block was built for the Surgery department. The Departments of Orthopedic Surgery, E.N.T. and Anesthesia were also created in the fifties. The speciality departments of Neurology, Cardiology, Psychiatry and Plastic Surgery came up in the seventies. In 1956, this hospital had the distinction of being selected by the Rockefeller Foundation for setting up a Residency Training Programme and funds were obtained for a 5 storied Residents' Hostel. The programme has run successfully here and has been emulated in all the medical colleges of the state. During the years 1981 to 1992 the college and hospital were taken over by the State Government and all administrative control was through the State Government instead of Lucknow University. However, this situation again reverted back in 1992. In the 1980's the college was selected as a site for establishment of a Clinical Epidemiology Unit by the International Clinical Epidemiology Network. In 1991, the Unit was formally inaugurated and since has been upgraded as the King Georges Medical College Institute of Clinical Epidemiology.

    Dental education at the King George's Medical College started initially as a Dentistry Wing of the Department of Surgery in 1949. The BDS course was also started in the same year, with a teaching staff of a reader, a lecturer, a senior demonstrator and 10 students. In 1951, it became a separate Department of Dentistry in a new Dental Hospital (now called the old dental college building) with Prof TN Chawla as Head of Department. Due to the efforts of Prof Chawla. MDS courses were introduced in the 3 disciplines of Periodontics, Prosthetics and Orthodontics in 1954. Later, in 1967, postgraduate courses in 2 more disciplines - Oral Surgery and Pedodontics were started, and in 1977, MDS in Operative Dentistry was started. In 1980, the Department was upgraded to a separate Faculty of Dental Sciences with 7 departments. A post of Dean of Dental Faculty was created which rotates amongst the professors at an interval of 3 years. With the growing need of floor area for each speciality, another building across the Shahmina Road next to Queen Mary's Hospital was built and fully commissioned in the year 1986. The present Dean is Professor DN Kapoor and previous deans have been Prof TN Chawla, Prof NK Agarwal, Prof DS Gupta, Prof CP Govila, Prof KK Kapoor and Prof Satish Chandra.
