St.John’s Medical College, Bangalore

St.John’s Medical College, Bangalore was started in 1963 by the Catholic Bishops Conference of India; St. John’s has grown to be listed as one of the top medical educational institutions in the country. The Supreme Court of India, granting the privilege of conducting its own entrance test, declared St. John’s Medical College as standing on a different footing altogether among the private medical colleges in the matter of admissions made strictly on the basis of merit. The National Assessment and Accreditation Council, a Review Committee of the University Grants Commission, has recognized the excellence of St. John’s Medical College and Hospital and accorded it with a 5 star grading. The mission orientation of the institution is to train healthcare professionals, especially to serve in the medically underserved areas of the country. Medical students execute a bond to serve in such areas for two years after their graduation. About 25% of them are permanently working in remote areas, and are committed to addressing the desperate health needs of these unreached rural populations.

St. John’s Medical College offers graduate, postgraduate, diploma and super specialty degrees recognized by the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS), Bangalore, Karnataka. Alumni and faculty of the institution hold eminent positions in various fields associated with medicine and health care, nationally and internationally.
