From a modest beginning in 1961, Medical College, Bellary has grown through hardship to the present Vijayanagar Institute of Medical Sciences (VIMS). The guiding philosophy of the institute is to provide training in the field of medical science through conscientious education, give professional service to the ailing needy and strengthening knowledge base in the relevant field through research. The objective of imparting education to the aspiring medical students and inculcating with human values, professional ethics and moral virtues are being met in an integrated form to groom the upcoming generation to serve the community relentlessly. The institute fosters and nurtures individuals capable of making difference in the field of medical sciences for meeting tomorrow’s challenges. Tireless efforts rendered by my predecessors have helped to bring this institution to its present glory.
Vijayanagar Institute of medical sciences, Bellary offers bachelor’s degree in medicine and dentistry (MBBS & BDS) along with diploma, masters (MD/MS) and super specialty (M.Ch) courses in the faculty of medicine. Institute stands tall on the foundation of committed and deeply knowledgeable teaching faculty, unique academic tools and an eclectic and diverse student community that has a burning desire to make new paths of its own and meeting new challenges. The institution also offers course in paramedical subjects and nursing. From the day of its inception, VIMS, Bellary (formerly Govt. Medical College, Bellary) cherished a dream to become leading medical college in the state and best in the country. With the tireless efforts of all my predecessors, colleagues, students and alumni, I expect this vision will become a reality.
