Welcome to our website. Being Principal of Rampurhat Government Medical College & Hospital, it gives me immense pleasure to introduce the institute to you. At the outset I would like to thank you for the interest in our institution.
Lay down of Foundation stone of this Rampurhat Govt Medical College was done on 22nd May 2017 by Hon’ble Chief Minister and Health Minister of West Bengal Smt. Mamata Banerjee.
The journey of our college with admission of undergraduate students started in 1st August, 2018 after approval of Medical Council of India. Over the last few years, our institute has shown steady progress and is now considered as one of the highly acclaimed medical colleges in West Bengal. Our institution has affiliations from The West Bengal University of Health Sciences for running MBBS course for 100 students per academic year. Paramedical technical courses mentioning DMLT, DRD, DOPT, DDCT, DOT under State Medical Faculty West Bengal, has been started in this institute. Off late, we have received affiliation for starting the Post-Graduate DNB Course in Broad-Specialities (Gynae & Obstetrics, Medicine, Anesthesiology & Respiratory Medicine) as well. Both the MBBS and DNB courses are duly permitted by the NATIONAL MEDICAL COMMISSION and NATBOARD, Govt. of India. We aspire to provide more courses in versatile streams of Medical Education under one roof, in near future.
Being located in a strategic position, we cater to the medical needs of a large pool of patients who seek care at our hospital. This includes a huge population residing in the District of Birbhum and its surrounding districts like Murshidabad, Paschim Bardhaman, Purba Bardhaman and also surrounding states like Jharkhand and Bihar.

We aspire to provide an environment for our students to develop objective minds, sensitive hearts, social awareness and a deep respect for human well-being. It is our constant endeavour to instil in our students the qualities of self-discipline, commitment, and integrity to ensure that they build successful professional lives for themselves. This education occurs in an ethical and professional environment while ensuring that high standards of medical care are provided to our patients. The consistent academic excellence of the students through the training imparted is reflected every year in the University Results. Our students are also encouraged to take part in various co-curricular, activities as well as sporting events.
The stronghold of our institution is the highly competent and dedicated teaching faculty who strive hard to implement our vision and mission. Their academic achievements, research accomplishments, and consistent yearning to keep themselves up to date is what makes the journey of learning for the students more fruitful and enjoyable.
Currently our nation is in the midst of a high tide of concern and tumult for sharing responsibility to improve the standards of the medical education. As such, refreshing initiatives are undertaken by the NMC through curricular reforms in the form of implementation of competency-based medical education. In this context, I am very happy and satisfied regarding the continued and passionate aspiration by the Medical Education Unit of our institute in duly implementing the CBME curriculum. The effort, activities and achievements of the MEU of our institute towards updating and upgrading the quality of health profession education have been satisfying.
As Principal of the Institute, I am proud to lead our institution’s commitment to provide medical teaching and health care of the highest standard through excellence in medical education, biomedical research and patient care. We look forward to welcoming you aboard, and here’s wishing you an unforgettably enriching experience with us.
With warm greetings and best wishes.
