Established in the Sacred Memory of Lord Mahavira's 25th Nirvana Centenary
In commemoration of Lord Mahavira’s 25th Nirvan Centenary, Lord Mahavira Homoeopathic Medical College & Hospital, an epitome of excellence and benevolence was established in 1976 under the auspices of Lord Mahavira Foundation (Regd.) Punjab. The institution owes its gratitude to the Founder, a visionary educationist – Samaj Rattan Late Sh. Hira Lal Jain and Late Sh. Dharam Pal Oswal, the Former President of this institution for their enthusiasm, commitment and devotion for this noble cause.
Initially, the college started imparting teaching & training leading to DHMS (Four years course) in Homoeopathy, under affiliation with Council of Homoeopathic System of Medicine, Punjab which in 1983 was converted to DHMS course of 3½ years duration under the Regulations laid down by Central Council of Homoeopathy. It was during the session 1995 – 96, the institution was upgraded to impart BHMS (Direct Degree) Course and BHMS (Graded Degree Course) and the college was affiliated to Baba Farid University of Health Sciences, Faridkot (Punjab.) w.e.f. the academic year 2001 – 02 onwards. With the advent of Guru Ravidas Ayurved University Punjab, Hoshiarpur, the affiliation status of the college was shifted to this university w.e.f. academic year 2011-12.
At present, the college is running Four OPD(s) in the campus along with its attached Indoor Hospital equiped with different Clinical units including - Medicine, Maternity, Eye, Dental, Clinical Pathology and Biochemistry Labs etc. These units are catering to a large number of patients with remarkably convincing results. The college is also attached with a full-fledged and well-equipped 20 - bedded Hospital. The Teaching Departments are well furnished with sufficient number of Charts, Models, Specimens and other teaching material including audio-video aids.
The college on its roles has highly experienced, well qualified and religiously committed Teaching Faculty. Majority of them hold MD (Hom.) qualification and are fully proficient & seasoned to take up the professional classes of higher courses i.e. Post – Graduate courses in Homoeopathy.
