  • Overview

The college holds a special place in the history of Mumbai as the first hospital made and run by Indians under the British empire. The other two big hospitals in the city at the time, K.E.M. Hospital and Sir J.J. hospital, were both managed by the British. TNMC was opened during the heady days of the independence movement in 1921 and was appropriately named as National Medical College. It was then taken over by the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai and since then the progress graph of the college has been going up and steady. [1]

Through a donation by Mr. M.N. Desai Topiwala the college was upgraded in 1946 and was inaugurated by Mahatma Gandhi and Sarojini Naidu. Alexander Fleming also visited the college. [1]

Today, with the infrastructure of the 1800 bedded BYL Nair Charitable Hospital behind it, TNMC makes an ideal training ground for budding medicos of the 21st century. It provides training courses in more than 25 different medical and allied branches, including 9 superspeciality courses. [1]

The college, with an annual budget of 7 crores, has more than 250 senior teaching staff members who are assisted by 400 resident doctors. Currently TNMC accepts 120 medical students each year through Maharashtra state common entrance test (MH-CET) and All India pre-medical test (PMT). [1]
