It turned 107 years old on November 2, 2007 but officially birthday of AMC is on the 3rd of November.
Late Lokapriya Gopinath Bordoloi, the then premier of Assam had inaugurated the prestigious college and since then AMC has achieved many high points and till date has proudly produced6822 MBBS graduates and 2350 post graduate doctors.
Its journey which began from 3rd November, 1947, in the abandoned US military hospital of the Second World War at Borbari, Dibrugarh, to completing 60 years of service was completed following many ups and downs. Its inception coinciding with the independence of the country holds historical significance for the people of Assam. However, the institution was in existence since 1900 in its earlier version as the Berry White Medical School which gave medical practitioners albeit without the MBBS degree.
Stalwarts like Bubaneshwar Baruah have been the founders of this great legacy.The alumni of this premier institute have served the people in the national as well as international level.
Government apathy had once deteriorated the glory of this grand institution but now grants as well as people’s participation has once more put it in the track of success. The Rs 100 crore comprehensive package for the development and upgradation of AMC is a sign of the triumphant times that are in store for this college of excellence.
The service provided to the common people by this institute for the past six decades is commendable. It not only provides health care services to the needy but aso provides meical and paramedical man power and training to various government, industrial and private hospitals of the region. It has also played a pivotal role in the establishment of other medical colleges in Assam, GMC and SMC in 1960 by providing eminent teachers and other paramedical staff and equipment.
On its Diamond Jubilee year we wish the AMC a lot more success and laurels for the coming year to come.
