Sri Ramachandra University will commit itself entirely to the advancement of medical education, health care and research and will reach a level of excellence in all these fields. The institution shall serve the humanity at large without any prejudice and in all fairness, stay socially - meaningful .
These were the words of commitment from the Managing Trustee in 1985 when Sri Ramachandra University was first conceived. From that moment on, there has been relentless growth and a constant upgradation in every sphere of activity. This college progressed so well in its strength and purpose that on October 1994, the Ministry of Human Resource awarded the institution the distinguished status of a “ Deemed to be University ”. The prestige and academic autonomy gained thereby paved the way for further growth in health related education. The Deemed University has been established by Sri Ramachandra Educational & Health Trust. The Trust achieved the task of establishing this Institute as a “ Center of Excellence ” under the leadership of Late Shri N.P.V. Ramasamy Udayar who was the Founder & Managing Trustee and also the first Chancellor of the Deemed University . Shri V R Venkataachalam is currently the Chancellor and also the Managing Trustee of the Trust.
The objective of the institution is to have the facility raised and developed to a level comparable to any major medical establishment in advanced countries. With this goal in mind, the Trust, in close co-operation of and guidance from professional experts in administration and teaching, has developed this sprawling 150 acres green campus to a level of a prestigious University today. In the last 19 years, a further milestone has been reached and on April 1, 1997 an inter-institutional alliance between Harvard Medical International, USA and Sri Ramachandra University was signed. This major step in the growth of the institution has further lead the institution towards quality in the areas of medical education, health care and research and enhanced its visibility in international level. The University offers, at present 71 Medical and allied courses at postgraduate level for qualified graduates and 9 courses at the undergraduate level for +2 (12 th grade) students in medical, dental, Para-medical and allied health sciences disciplines through the following constituent colleges located within the campus:
