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.
