B.S. Medical College was established in 1956 by Bankura Sammilani Trust. The college was taken over by Government of West Bengal in 1961. MCI recognition for 100 MBBS seats was finally recognized in December 2005. Post graduate courses in General Medicine, General Surgery, Pediatric Medicine and Gynae & Obstetrics were permitted by MCI in March, 2009. This Government Institution is a Medical College & Hospital providing medical education, research and health care to the people of Bankura district, neighbouring districts and even the nearby states. The buildings of the institution are mainly situated at the Lokepur campus and Gobindanagar campus of Bankura town.
It is my proud privilege and honour to serve this esteemed institution, which also provides health care facilities to huge number of people, coming from the remote corners of this district, adjacent districts as well as from neighboring states since 1922.
