Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences

A premier Health Science University, Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences was established on 1st June 1996 at Bangalore by the Government of Karnataka through its enactment of Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences, Karnataka Act 1994.

After the formation of the University, all the medical and health sciences colleges were brought under its umbrella which were earlier affiliated to other conventional universities. This ensured proper and systematic instruction and training and research.

The need for a separate medical University was the phenomenal increase in the number of institutions and students admitted to various courses of medical and allied health sciences. The courses and colleges needed to be monitored and syllabus needed to be standardized. 

RGUHS is considered one of the top universities offering the best medical education in India with initiatives to make its syllabi for different courses of world class quality taking it to the forefront of Medical education in India.

Based on the ever-changing scenario and also on the needs of the society it has been restructuring its programs and also starting new ones so that quality healthcare reaches the nooks and corners of the country.
