MGIMS Wardha was founded in 1969, during Gandhi’s centennial year. The college was previously affiliated with Nagpur University (1969–1997), but since 1998, it has been affiliated with the Maharashtra University of Health Sciences (MUHS), Nashik.

The institute is in Sevagram, a small village about 8 kilometres from Wardha. It is well connected to the rest of the country via rail and road. Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar International Airport, Nagpur is about 70 kilometres away from the college.

MGIMS is India’s first rural medical college started by Dr. Sushila Nayyar. The Kasturba Hospital, founded in 1944, is the only hospital founded by the father of the nation himself.

MGIMS has evolved into a low-cost institute that serves the rural community. It has also worked hard to achieve its community-oriented mission by collaborating closely with its alcohol and drug rehabilitation centre, which is now in its 8th year. It has also introduced health insurance into rural areas. This service was used by 68000 families in the Sevagram area in 2014-15.

Hospital of Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences

When the first batch of 60 students enrolled in 1969, MGIMS was the independent India’s first attempt to give rural health a new direction. It now claims to have trained over 2300 doctors. 

MGIMS has come a long way in the more than three decades since its inception. MGIMS has made its own small history, growing from a 15-bed hospital to a hospital with 972 beds and cutting-edge technology. 

In 2014-2015, approximately 70,000 people visited the institute’s outpatient department. During this time, over 48,000 patients were admitted.

Sushila Nayar, Gandhi’s close associate and personal physician, established the Kasturba Hospital in 1945. Kasturba Hospital at Sevagram has grown from a 770-bed hospital to a nearly 1000-bed teaching hospital located in Sevagram, about 8 kilometres from Wardha town, that provides tertiary care healthcare facilities to rural patients.

Over the course of a 24-hour period, approximately 1700 patients seek outpatient care at the hospital, hospital pharmacies handle 1800 prescriptions, 140 patients seek admission to hospital wards, 14 patients undergo major surgeries, 12 babies are delivered, and 20 units of blood are transfused. 

Kasturba Hospital is part of MGIMS, which is consistently ranked as one of the top 20 medical schools in the country. This MGIMS teaching hospital has the benefit of nearly all staff physicians serving on the faculty. 

Kasturba Hospital has been committed to training and mentoring the next generation of international leaders in science and medicine since its inception in 1969, providing a wealth of opportunities for physicians, nurses, and other health professionals. 

In the hospital, nearly 2300 doctors have been trained, and these talented men and women, in turn, bring new and innovative perspectives on how to treat and care for patients.

Kasturba Hospital also collaborates closely with health care institutions to provide patients in their communities with expert treatment and cutting-edge clinical trials. They have collaborated with St John Medical College in Bangalore, as well as the Indian Council of Medical Research.


MGIMS is a medical college, placements are nearly 100%, and anyone who wants to work after graduation can do so in any government or private hospital. 

Those who want to pursue post-graduate studies, on the other hand, usually need a year to prepare. Salary varies according to location, but it typically ranges from Rs. 45,000-1,00,000 for students with an MBBS degree, and it is higher for those who have completed post-graduation.

MGIMS and KHS were brought in to provide rural health care. The best part of college is serving at the village level and for people who are still unable to access proper health care.
