Brief History: Medical College and Hospital, Kolkata, commonly referred to as Calcutta Medical College, formerly Medical College, Bengal, is a medical school and hospital in the city of Kolkata in the state of West Bengal, India. It was established in 1835 and is the second oldest medical school to teach European medicine in Asia and India, after Ecole de Medicine de Pondicherry (now JIPMER). On 9 May 1822, the government laid down a plan for the instruction of up to twenty young Indians to fill the position of native doctors in the civil and military establishments of the Presidency of Bengal. The outcome was the establishment of “The Native Medical Institution” (NMI) in Calcutta (21 June 1822), which later became Medical College, Bengal. The hospital associated with the college is one of the largest hospitals in Kolkata. The college imparts the degree Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery (MBBS) as well as specialised and post-doctoral degrees. Nursing and para-medical courses are also offered.
