About Jawaharlal Institude of Postgraduate medical education and research

JIPMER traces its origin to 1823 when a medical school called "Ecole de Medicine de Pondichery" was established by French government. In November 1956 the Government of India took over the medical college in the wake of the ‘de facto’ transfer of Pondicherry. The college was upgraded as a Regional Centre and named as Jawaharlal Institute of Post-graduate Medical Education and Research (JIPMER) on 13th July 1964.

JIPMER which includes a tertiary care referral hospital is an Institution of National Importance (an autonomous body) under the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India.

Three main functions of this institute are,

to impart quality education in Under-graduate and Post-graduate medical and paramedical courses;
to set trends in medical research and
to offer patient care of high order.

JIPMER campus is located in the western entrance of Pondicherry on the highway and spread over 195 acres of sloping land that is a hillock, known in vernacular as ‘Gorimedu’. The campus is self sufficient in many ways and contains well laid roads, green trees & plants apart from Post-Office, Bank, Shopping centre, Hostels, and Residential complex (Campus Map).

The institute conducts a number of medical and paramedical courses. Admission to the courses are made on all India basis and strictly on the basis of merit through entrance examinations.
