Gauhati Medical College and Hospital was founded in September 1960 by Dr. SN Sarma, the founder principal. It was created by the state government and the Chief Minister of Assam at the time BP Chaliha, due to the overwhelming lack of competent medical facilities and education in Assam at the time. Since the permanent campus was not yet built, the hospital and college were located on a temporary campus. In September 1968, the permanent building of the college was inaugurated by the then-governor of Assam Dr. B K Nehru. The college is affiliated to the Srimanta Sankaradeva University of Health Sciences.

I had to clear NEET 2017 exam to enter this premier institute of Northeast India. My state rank was 35 in all Assam so I could easily get a seat in this college, which is supposed to be the toughest college to get admitted to MBBS for a general category student. Admission procedure was quite lengthy and I had to present a lot of documents for verification.The administrative block of GMCH manages the admission procedure nicely with due discipline and harmony.
