Principal’s Message

It was an arduous but gratifying task when we embarked on our journey in the year 2014 to establish a medical college and Super-specialty Hospital at Thodupuzha in Idukki District, after founding an array of educational institutions in the streams of Engineering, Dental, Arts & Science, Law, polytechnic, CBSE schools etc. The road ahead was not so rosy, toiled hard, fought against the odds and waded through the difficult phases to achieve our goals. The journey is still on because we have promises to keep and miles to go…  

The college and the Hospital predominantly focus on shaping a new genre of doctors committed to the nation and the people and providing high quality healthcare services and facilities to the common man at affordable charges. 

The government of India is bringing various reforms to the medical education system and several innovative ideas and concepts are on the anvil with the aim of producing qualified and competent health professionals. The Competency Based Undergraduate Curriculum introduced by the Medical Council of India is the latest step in this direction. We will be able to witness more innovative initiatives like this in the years to come especially with the advent of National Medical Commission (NMC). 

We, the management of Al – Azhar Medical College and Super-specialty Hospital  are committed to provide our students with the most conducive and professional environment for learning, excellent faculties for training, and best infrastructure facilities to shape them to be qualified & the best health professionals with commitment to the society and the country as well.  

I earnestly believe that experiencing the precarious and pristine pleasure of watching our wards fulfilling their dreams is the most satisfying moment in one’s life. I seek support from our students, parents and the staff as well, in our continuing efforts to realise their dreams and to fortify this medical institution to be an epitome of professional excellence and be ranked as one of the best in the country
