Kasturba Medical College (KMC) is a medical college based in Manipal, Udupi District Karnataka, India.
Established by Dr T.M.A. Pai on 30th June, 1953, KMC was the first private sector medical college in India. The college started with only the pre-clinical section at Manipal and the students had to go to Mangalore for their clinical training. With the clinical program commenced at Manipal in 1969 with the setting up of Kasturba Hospital, it became a full-fledged independent college and Mangalore becoming a separate constituent college, Kasturba Medical College, Mangalore.
KMC Manipal ranks among the top 10 medical colleges in India today. Students from 44 countries have graduated from KMC, and the medical degree (MBBS) is recognized worldwide, including by the General Medical Council and ECFMG.
Previously, KMC was under the purview of the Mangalore University. In 1993, the government of India granted Deemed University status to Manipal University (formerly known as MAHE) which saw KMC coming under its wing.
KMC has exchange programs with Loma Linda University, USA, Operation Eyesight Universal, Canada, Tayside University, Dundee, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, USA and Maastricht University, the Netherlands.
