The Government Medical College Amritsar is one of the oldest and a premier medical education institute of country. It traces its foundation as a Medical School in Lahore as early as 1864 and later being established in Amritsar in 1920. The college has a cherished history and earned for itself a place of pride in the field of medical education and patient care in the region.
The launch of college website is part of conscious effort of this old yet vibrant institution in order to be a part of the technological and electronic revolution.
We set out to incorporate information technology by spearheading the setting up of an Information Technology Centre (ITC) in 2003 that generated an enthusiastic response both from the teaching faculty and students. The Centre also houses a two-way satellite linkage provided by Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) for implementation of Integrated Disease Surveillance Programme, telemedicine and networking with other premier health and health informatics institutes of the country.
The modernization drive of the college has broader dimensions. In May 2007, the foundation stone of a state-of-the-art radiotherapy centre was laid down by Honorable Mr. Tikshan Sud, Minister for Medical Education and Research, Punjab. The Centre will provide specialized care to a large number of cancer patients in this part of the country.
The launching of the college website coincides with the plans of State Government to step up quality of patient care, research and education in this college. I am confident this portal will help promote networking amongst institutions, faculty members and alumni and will showcase the research work being conducted in various departments of the college. In addition it will facilitate the provision and dissemination of information to the public.
