About CMC Vellore

The Christian Medical College (CMC), Vellore was established in 1900 by an American missionary Dr. Ida Sophia Scudder, primarily to cater to the health care needs of the local women. From a single-bed dispensary at the time, CMC has grown to an over 3000-bedded tertiary care referral centre. It cares for over two million patients and trains one thousand doctors, nurses and other medical professionals each year. It has achieved several milestones for healthcare in India and is consistently ranked among the top medical colleges in the country.

About the Department of Neurological Sciences at CMC

The Department of Neurological Sciences at Christian Medical College (CMC), Vellore was the first department to start neurosurgical and neurological services in India. Dr. Jacob Chandy started the department in 1949. He started a formal training program in neurosurgery in 1958, for the first time in India, and went on to qualify several neurosurgeons, who in turn pioneered neurosurgical departments all over India.

The department recently shifted from the Town Campus at Vellore to a new Campus in Ranipet District where the Division of Neurosurgery caters to more than 2500 outpatients and operates on over 200 patients a month. Research has also been an integral part of the activities of the department and several high impact articles have been published by the faculty and residents over the decades.
