Goa Medical College

This famous institution is located on the banks of the river towards Miramar and just beside the market. It until a few years ago housed the campus of the only medical school and hospital in Goa. It has since moved to a new campus at Bambolim, 6kms away towards Vasco. It is purported to be the oldest medical school in Asia and was established in 1842.

Improvements to the school were due to the then Governor of Goa, Jose Ferreira de Pestano ( 1844-51 and 1864-70 ). The first eight graduates graduated from the school and were granted degrees in 1846. It used to be called the "Escola de Medica Cirugiao" and used to give its coveted diploma "Diploma de Medico Cirugiao" or "M.C".

Today there are still a few of Goa's physicians practicing with this degree. After liberation it became the Goa Medical College and began conducting the MBBS course after being affiliated with the University of Bombay. After 1987 it became affiliated to the newly established Goa University.
