The Padmashree Dr.D.Y.Patil Medical College, established in 1996, received approval of the medical council of India (MCI), for the award of MBBS degree for its very first batch. The college has been accorded the status of Deemed-to-be-University by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Government of India on recommendation of the University Grants Commission (UGC) within a period of just six and a half years of establishment, perhaps the shortest period of such recognition.
This is the first private college in the state of Maharashtra to receive MCI approval to increase in the intake from 100 to 150 students in 2003, again perhaps within the shortest span of time of seven years. In 2003, the college was permitted to teach post-graduate courses in a couple of subjects. By June 2005, the college was allowed the intake of 81 students in post graduate degree and diploma courses in the following 19 subjects : general surgery, obstetrics & gynaecology, orthopaedics, opthalmology, ENT (oto rhino laryngology), general medicine, paediatrics, anaesthesiology, psychiatry, radio-diagnosis, TB & chest diseases, skin & venereal diseases, pathology, community medicine, pharmacology, microbiology, anatomy, physiology and biochemistry. The college has been recently permitted to conduct superspeciality course in Neuro-surgery.
These recognitions and expansions granted by the MCI, UGC, MHRD and by the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Government of India are the result of visionary guidance and whole hearted support of our Vice Chancellor, the efforts put in by the faculty and the excellent facilities like spacious building, measuring 4,50,000 sq. ft., large lecture halls, well-equipped laboratories, well-stocked library, a hospital with 900 beds, ultra-modern super speciality facilities, such as MRI, whole body CT Scan, ICUs, with ventilators, and the equipment required for neuro-surgery, plasitc surgery, etc.
