INTRODUCTION

Chennai Medical College Hospital and Research Centre (CMCHRC) is a unit of SRM group of educational Institutions. SRM (Sri Ramasamy Memorial) ventured into higher education in 1984, and since then, it has grown and gained recognition at the National and International level. CMCHRC is the long felt dream of Dr. T.R. Paarivendhar, the Founder Chancellor of the SRM group of institutions. It was his wish to establish a medical college in a rural area, to ensure quality health care delivery to a diverse population. His vision came to fruition when CMCHRC launched health care services from Irungalur village, Mannachanallur Taluk, Tiruchirapalli of Tamil Nadu State. With each year, the college and hospital continue to flourish and bring world renowned health care to all concerned. In recognition of the achievements and contributions of Dr. T.R. Paarivendhar, to education including health care and technology, he was conferred a doctorate by the Faculty of Technology, Engineering and Environment, Birmingham City University (BCU) of United Kingdom on February 19, 2010 (www.timeschennai.com). The title was conferred for the excellent work rendered by him in the field of Engineering and Technology education. At present, this institution is headed by Dr.R.Shivakumar, the Chairman of CMCHRC, who is a dynamic personality with a never ending quest for research.

CMCHRC is located on the Trichy – Chennai National Highway 45 that passes through Irungalur village. The hospital established services as a multi-specialty 350 bedded teaching hospital in the year 2008 (Essentiality Certificate: Government Letter no 54396/MCA2/2007-3. Dated 27.06.08, Department of Health and Family Welfare, Government of Tamil Nadu, Chennai). It is well connected by road to all the villages and towns in and around the hospital area. Today the institution is a multi-specialty centre and boasts a 720 bedded hospital that caters to patients from neighbouring villages and from Trichy city. It is a MCI recognised college offering MBBS and MD courses, affiliated to the Tamilnadu Dr MGR Medical University, Chennai. In recognition of the phenomenal growth  in recent times, CMCHRC was placed among the top ten emerging medical colleges in India by the India Today-Nielson survey 2016. CMCHRC is the ideal place for nurturing the growth and development of every student to be the bright doctors of tomorrow who will strengthen health care delivery from the grass root level.
