The College was established and is maintained by the Christian Medical College Vellore Association, a registered society, formed by over 50 different Indian Christian churches and Christian organisations which run over 225 hospitals, health centres and dispensaries throughout the length and breadth of this country, many of which are situated in remote rural areas.
The motto of the institution is ‘Not To Be Ministered Unto, But To Minister’ or not to be served but to serve.
The purpose of the Christian Medical College therefore is to train dedicated persons to manage, run and provide health care in the spirit of Christ through the mission hospitals.
See how this is put into practice for student nurses and student doctors both in the hospital and out in the community.
