Introduction to CMC Vellore
An Unending Dedication to Excellence in Research, Education, and Service
The Christian Medical College (CMC) in Vellore was founded in 1900 as a one-room clinic by Dr. Ida S. Scudder, the only daughter of second-generation American missionaries.
People from around the world visit CMC to get world-class care, delivered with honesty, fairness, compassion, and integrity. CMC’s excellence continues with advances in research and an evolving curriculum aimed at transforming India’s promising medical students into creative and compassionate healthcare providers.
CMC has come a long way from its humble start as a one-room clinic, growing into one of India’s most prestigious private hospitals and medical schools. Today, CMC cares for over two million patients and trains one thousand doctors, nurses and other medical professionals each year.
CMC is recognized around the world for its unique model of delivering world-class treatment at the lowest possible cost, and is consistently ranked among the top hospitals in India.
