The Symbiosis Medical College for Women is the brainchild of Prof. Dr. S.B.Mujumdar, the Founder and Chancellor of the Symbiosis International (Deemed University). After seeing the biographic movie about India’s first lady doctor, Ms. Anandibai Joshi, the idea of creating a medical college exclusively for women was born. With an objective of women empowerment and contributing to nation building by increasing the number of female doctors, Symbiosis has established this exclusive Medical college for Women under the Faculty of Health Sciences.
The medical college is located in the scenic campus of the Symbiosis International (Deemed University) at Lavale, Pune. The annual intake will be 150 students. The medical college and its attached Symbiosis University Hospital and Research Centre have state-of-the-art infrastructure and facilities. Sister Institutes in the Lavale campus like the Symbiosis Institute of Business Management, Pune, Symbiosis Institute of Digital and Telecom Management, Symbiosis Institute of Media & Communication, Symbiosis School of Biological Sciences, Symbiosis School of Photography, Symbiosis School of Culinary Arts, Symbiosis School of Sports Sciences, Symbiosis Institute of Technology, Symbiosis School of Banking and Finance & research centers like Symbiosis Centre for Waste Resource Management, Symbiosis Centre for Stem Cell Research, Symbiosis Centre for Behavioural Studies, Symbiosis Centre for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology and Symbiosis Centre for Medical Image Analysis will assist in the strong focus on academics and research.
In addition to the academic infrastructure, excellent residential facilities for residents and staff are available within the campus. The college has a fully air-conditioned library with the requisite array of national and international textbooks and medical journals which form a vital part of the college facilities. Our highly experienced and senior staff will ensure the best of training to produce skilled women doctors who are empathetic, ethical and compassionate. As has been the culture of Symbiosis, we believe it is our responsibility to contribute to nation building by providing excellent training and creating the next generation as qualified and ethical human beings.
