The study of the Internal Medicine has generally been recognized as the basis of all medical sciences. Relevant knowledge from all the preclinical and other clinical disciplines has to assimilated into a holistic understanding of the aetiology, pathogenesis and treatment of clinical disorders.
In an era where there is continuous fragmentation of internal medicine into subspecialities, our aim is to equip the student with adequate knowledge and clinical skills, so that they can later confront disease processes with a wider focus.

It aims to impart the best in skills of Medicine to our students both undergraduate and postgraduate, so as to equip them both to compete aginst the very best.
The large number and variety of cases available in this hospital provide an excellent base for clinical studies both for thesis works and publications, and our aim is to facilitate these studies on randoms aspects of Medicine utilizing the excellent research facilities that are being provided by the hospital.
A new thrust on our research activities could easily transform the Jubilee Mission Medical College into a recognized center for the output of the research papers and publications of standard, merit and value.
As large number of patients who opt for focused clinical care are not able to access this, specialized OP clinics in HIV, Geriatrics,etc.. will be set up under the Medicine Department to provide reasonable and competent care.
