CMC, Vellore

New Delhi:A leading news magazine has rated Christian Medical College (CMC), Vellore as the second best medical college in India.

India Today put the All India Institute of Medical Sciences on top of medical schools in India in its annual survey of 2012.

The Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research, Puducherry was ranked third followed by Armed Forces Medical College, Pune.

CMC founded by American medical missionary Dr Ida Sophia Scudder has “gained immensely from the synergy of a well-reputed hospital…. and run with tremendous commitment,” India Today wrote.

A total of 2,000 students are enrolled in 150 different postgraduate courses in the medical, nursing and allied health disciplines.

The magazine noted that the alumni of the century-old Christian institution had several public health specialists, including civil rights activist Binayak Sen and Magsaysay Award winner Rajnikant Arole.

In this mercenary age, CMC still produces medical professionals ready to offer unflinching public service to the nation, the magazine remarked.

CMC, which started in the year 1900, “seeks to be a witness to the healing ministry of Christ, through excellence in education, service and research”.

“We continue to strive to ensure that our growth in size and numbers is matched by a growth in the depth of our caring and commitment…,” CMC Vellore director, Suranjan Bhattacharji was quoted saying.

Another Christian medical institution St John’s Medical College, Bangalore, run by the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of India, was listed as the ninth best medical college in the India Today Nielsen survey.
