Chandigarh the “City Beautiful” h has some of the best educational facilities in the country. It has an Engineering College, a College of Arts, a College of Architecture, several government and private degree colleges, and other prestigious and important research institutions, 

in addition to Punjab University and the Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research. 

However, the city lacked a medical college for graduates (MBBS) and postgraduate studies for Chandigarh students. 

To address this shortcoming, the Chandigarh Administration decided to establish a medical college in the city. 

The Department of Medical Education and Research was established for this purpose.
